The body was taken from a flat on the fifth floor of the building.
Sussex Police would not say whether concerned neighbours had cause for alarm and whether witnesses were being sought for a crime of violence or whether they were dealing with a death by natural causes.
The force control room said that it was unaware of any incident in the street which is close to Hove railway station.
