Momentum For Moulsecoomb

The area around Preston Barracks is about to be transformed.  The ambition of the Momentum masterplan is to create a thriving addition to the Lewes Road which will contribute to employment, enterprise and entrepreneurialism; a place that people want to live, learn, work and be proud to be a part of. Drawing on the old and existing qualities that make this part of Brighton extraordinary.

New homes, a business start-up incubator space, new academic buildings, managed student accommodation, shops, cafes and car parking will be designed around a new public green space.

New routes will be created to provide better connectivity for neighbouring residential streets, such as Saunders Park View to the Lewes Road and Moulsecoomb Railway Station.

This sustainable development will create over 1,000 new jobs locally and contribute over half billion pounds to the city’s economy over the next 10 years.

This is a partnership between U+I, Brighton & Hove City Council and the University of Brighton.
