Work on the former Belmont Brewery site is expected to start immediately, with plans for a number of upmarket shops and restaurants arranged over two levels, with an attractive roof terrace and central courtyard.
Richard James, of Richard James Estate Agents and co-owner of the site, said: "We are proud to be part of the vision for the future of Old Town. The next two years will be very important in its history.
"We are convinced that other quality commercial and residential developments, such as the Locarno, will create a demand for attractive placed where people want to spend their leisure time."
