The developer's vision for the old Hanningtons department store - where Cath Kidston will open its doors next year

The company, which currently has a store in East Street, has signed a lease for 6-7 North Street, which is being revamped as part of the revitalisation of the old Hanningtons department store.

Andrew Foulds, portfolio director at Redevco, said: “Our vision for the North Street element of Hanningtons Estate was always to take the existing premium retail offer found within East Street and extend it up North Street, so it is fitting that we have attracted Cath Kidston as our first retailer. The brand had outgrown their existing store and this deal offers them a prominent site in a great location. We are in advanced discussions with some exciting new brands to Brighton, not just for North Street, but for the smaller units within the new Hanningtons Lane.”

Sue Carvell, commercial director of Cath Kidston, said: “We’re very excited to announce our new store opening at 6-7 North St, Brighton, reflecting the success that we have seenin the area since we opened our original store on East Street in 2011. Our new, convenient one floor store will allow us to showcase even more of our exciting new product offeringincluding our growing kids department, in a prime location to our local customers.”

Redevco said it hopes its work on the estate will be complete by next summer.
