Developers have applied for planning permission to build the first phase of a proposed business park revamp in Woodingdean.
Property firm St Modwen wants to create four industrial warehouse and office units totalling 3,479 sq m at Woodingdean Business Park, at the junction of Bexhill Road and Falmer Road.
The company has a long-term blueprint for more than a dozen other units over a larger site.
Access to the currently derelict site, which was formerly the Sunblest bakery, would be via Sea View Way.
Parking for 64 cars and 10 bikes would be included and 50 jobs would be based at the site.
Brighton and Hove City Council planning committee will vote on the proposals in the next few months.
