The Observer Building is owned and managed by community-led regeneration organisation Hastings Commons. Since 2014, Hastings Commons have brought over 8,000 square metres of floor space into custodian ownership across a whole cluster of buildings in Hastings. We’ve renovated them to a high quality, offering genuinely affordable rents, and supporting residents and businesses to collaborate and take more control of where they live and work. Through this very local focus, Hastings Commons challenges traditional approaches, creating new models of ownership, management and collaboration that can inspire people beyond Hastings & St Leonards.
