Seafront arches in Old Portsmouth have been given £1.75million to transform the historic Hotwalls into creative studios called the 'ARTches'.
The money injection is part of the government's Coastal Communities Fund.
Within the arches, there are plans to built 13 artist studios with the possibility of a brasserie.
23 jobs will also be created directly thanks to this project, with 82 being indirectly created.
Amidst the construction, there is plans to set up an apprenticeship scheme through the ARTches project.
