A former amusement arcade in Hastings old town has been sold for redevelopment.
Vail Williams acted for the freeholder on the disposal of the 14,039 sq ft site at 39-41 George Street.
The property consultancy concluded a deal with the purchaser, Oasis Developments Hastings Ltd
Arranged mainly across three floors, the early 20th century property also once housed a nightclub at first floor level.
Planning permission has now been sought for 20 apartments and ground floor commercial units.
The proposal includes the demolition of the entire building with a rebuild incorporating some of the historic features specific to George Street and Hastings.
A spokesperson for Oasis Developments said: “The application is highly supported by local organisations with the view that this will enhance the George Street elevation and be a premier tourist attraction.”
Steve Berrett, Vail Williams’ partner based in Crawley, added: “We acted for an existing client on this deal. Properties like this are rarely available and we had strong interest throughout the process.
“Historically, the site will be known to many people as the family entertainment centre Old Town Amusements, with Georgies (formerly Waves) nightclub above, but it became surplus to requirements.”
