Excavation underway for the construction of the new Brighton Hotel

Excavation work is underway on the site of a former conference room to construct a new nine-story hotel near the seafront.

The showroom at the rear of the Metropole Hotel in Cannon Place, Brighton has been demolished and a new 221 room building is to be constructed.

Almost all of the original building has been demolished, with a large moat visible as work begins on the new hotel.

Brighton and Hove Council last year approved plans for the hotel after the city’s tourism team said the loss of the conference room, which was last used in 2018, would not affect Brighton’s ability to host large conferences.

A condition of the planning permission, granted by the council, requires the site’s owner, Topland, to spend £50,000 on public art.

At a meeting last year, Independent City Councilor Tony Janio called for the funds to be spent on original artwork.

He said: “I’d love to see some crazy artwork down there, so people think when they walk by from Churchill Square, ‘It’s not unusual. That’s why we came to Brighton and Hove.”

Topland is expected to lease the new Cannon Place Hotel to Irish company Dalata for a period of 35 years, while Hilton Hotels will continue to operate the Metropole.
