Stockwool has won the green light for this 282-home, mixed-use development in Southend-on-Sea
The scheme for Goldfield Developments will 2,700m² of commercial space on a site currently used for parking.
It includes six buildings ranging in height from four to 14 storeys which step down to meet the surrounding residential streets to the north of the site.
Monica Coffey, project director at Stockwool, said: ‘Our approach at Marine Plaza was very much focused on integrating a high density Regeneration scheme into the local context while also meeting the identified policy requirement for a landmark development. Over 3,700m2 is dedicated to public landscaped space incorporating a public art strategy which provides further opportunities for local interaction.’
Mark Farrier of Goldfield Developments added: ‘Marine Plaza is the first step in a significant regeneration strategy for the town centre. As well as providing homes for local people, the new leisure offer will revive the seafront – bringing considerable economic benefit to the wider community.
‘Getting to this point has been a lengthy and difficult process. Stockwool worked diligently and professionally from conception to conclusion and their design is something we are all very proud of and something that will put this run down part of Southend seafront back on the map for many years to come.’
