Construction of the Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park has started in Eastbourne, East Sussex, with site clearance and piling works.
The 5.5 acre business park is being created by economic development company Sea Change Sussex, with support from Eastbourne Borough Council and East Sussex County Council.
The construction work is being carried out by Buckingham Group Contracting, a £300 million turnover, family/owner-managed building company.
The project will bring new economic life to a disused site in prestigious Sovereign Harbour, 2.5 miles east of Eastbourne town centre, by attracting expanding businesses and providing local jobs.
The first development on the Park will be Pacific House (shown below) – a 2,300m² contemporary business centre.
Pacific House will be able to accommodate up to 70 firms as amix of small or medium sized businesses or, alternatively, one or two large companies.
These could be start-ups, established local firms, companies from outside the area or a combination of these.
The units available range from 58m² to the entire building, which will be able to accommodate up to 300 employees.
The rest of the Innovation Park offers a range of potentialsites for further commercial properties to be developed which could bring total development up to 10,000m² including Pacific House.
Anyone interested in either offices within Pacific House orother developments on the Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park should contact one of Sea Change’s agents:
