Developer Urban Splash has shortlisted these six schemes in its Morecambe Central Promenade competition. More than 100 practices entered the contest to mastermind the regeneration of a 4.7ha seafront site next to the resort's Grade II*-listed Art Deco Midland Hotel. However, self-proclaimed architectural guru Wayne Hemingway, who paired up with Foreign Office Architects to submit a scheme for his home town, did not make the cut.

Among the architects who will be asked back are five London-based practices, including relative unknowns Rogerson Keusgen King Architects.

The only scheme from outside the capital to make the shortlist was from ADF Architecture & Design's Glasgow office. Chaired by Sarah Wigglesworth, the judges in the RIBA-organised competition expect to select a winner on 9 February.
