New future about to unfold for Observer building

A new future is about to open up for the former Observer building in Cambridge Road following the exchange of contracts between White Rock Neighbourhood Ventures and the previous owner. A 10-year project to transform the building is envisaged, with a £10,000 Crowdfunder appeal to help kick-start the work. Nick Terdre reports.

Watch this space!

On Monday the White Rock Neighbourhood Ventures offer of £1.25 million for the old Observer Building was accepted. If all goes to plan, by 21 December this year, the OB will have an exciting new future. HOT’s Erica Smith caught up with Beth Woolf from Jericho Road who has been busy working with White Rock Neighbourhood Ventures, buying the Hastings Observer building.

Rock House rocks!

An experimental, collaborative, creative, affordable mixed-use building: Rock House in the centre of Hastings offers both residential and working space, aiming to “disrupt the usual gentrification story by making it possible for people who ‘scrape a living’ – but contribute so much to the area – to continue living and working here”. Karen Simnett writes.
