    King Alfred

    Really disappointing news that Crest have pulled out of this development. The King Alfred project was not perfect but the facilities are not fit for purpose. We deserve better. What makes matters worse is our wet Council not signing a contract. Agree with the councillor - heads need to roll from the Labour Councillors.

    Our City deserves much better.

    Rant over.

      It’s a shame the Tory party put a stop to the Gehry project, wasting around 5m of tax payers money in the process. Pure politics and waste over common sense.

      Just looked at what you have written in your "location". Are you upset about the development falling through, or are you looking to use this to make a political point? If so what would you have done differently?

      To think we could have had an iconic Frank Gehry landmark building on that site years ago. Stupid parochial bastids

      I find this stuff confusing.

      We need a new swimming pool in Brighton.
      To do that we need, whatever, 55 storys of flats above them ... okay
      Now the current King Alfred or the Prince Regent, or any other swimming pool i've been to, don't have a tonne of flats above them, so how did they ever get built?

      (Please note, this is rhetorical)

      Agree. You have the Tories to blame for this. Utter scum bags putting their prehistoric ideology over common sense.

      Blimey the King Alfred! Aunt Nora up in the balcony seats. Me diving off the board as close to the edge as I could get because I couldn't swim. Hot chocolate and a donought after in the crap cafe. That is quite a nostalgia fest.

      £4m tax payers money wasted.

      Why don't they just build a swimming pool without having to shoehorn in 500 houses. Adur council managed to in Worthing a couple of years ago.

      Two Victorian women walking along the Prom my arse.

      The Gehry plot was to get high density housing on a small plot. Never liked the design and very dated now without being exposed to the sea for the last 10 years.

      The project fell through because ING Real Estate went bust in 2008 bank crisis and Hove Grammar Boy Josh Arghiros couldn’t find an oil Sheikh prepared to fund the KARIS project.
