Boxpark has submitted plans to revive Madeira Terrace in Brighton, and transform it into a retail and leisure destination.

It is hoping to secure a 12-month exclusivity period to explore design, funding and management opportunities for the regeneration project.

The plans, submitted to Brighton & Hove Council, include proposals to revive the crumbling Victorian arches to create a new development that would incorporate a premium hotel operator, understood to be Soho House, with its Little Beach House Brighton development, which gained planning permission in December 2015.

Roger Wade, Boxpark founder and Brighton and Hove resident developed the plans alongside project creator Paul Nicholson from Chalk Architecture.

Wade said: “Madeira Terrace is the embodiment of the Victorian grandeur that saw Brighton become the UK’s favourite seaside destination. Our proposal aims to redevelop this much loved area to create a year round retail and leisure destination to be enjoyed by local residents and visitors to the coast alike.

We’re looking forward to the opportunity to work with Brighton & Hove City Council, local stakeholders and businesses and our development partners over the next 12 months to explore how we bring the Boxpark concept to Brighton, whilst retaining the architecture and heritage that our seafront is synonymous with.”

Paul Nicholson, director, Chalk Architects, added: “Further to developing a concept to save the Madeira Arches in 2015, we have had an ongoing constructive engagement with the local community about our ideas via our social media.

“In response to significant public interest the scheme has evolved over time into a dynamic proposal of new & enhanced public space wrapping around leisure, hospitality and commercial office use. Working with the Boxpark team has transformed the scheme into an exceptionally exciting prospect.”
