Boxpark submits plans for Brighton seafront

Pop-up mall Boxpark has submitted plans to regenerate Brighton’s Madeira Terrace into a retail and leisure development, incorporating a new premium hotel operator.

Under the plans, the Grade II listed terrace, spanning 9,149 sq ft along the seafront arches, would be restored with a new building and urban green spaces.

The Brighton seafront proposal

“Madeira Terrace is the embodiment of the Victorian grandeur that saw Brighton become the UK’s favourite seaside destination,” said Roger Wade, founder of Boxpark and Brighton resident. “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.”

He has worked with Chalk Architects on the proposals. In 2015 they developed a concept to save the arches, which has evolved further following community engagement.

Paul Nicholson, director of Chalk Architects, added: “In response to significant public interest, the scheme has evolved over time into a dynamic proposal of new and 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.”

Boxpark currently has two schemes, in east London’s Shoreditch and in Croydon, and is set to open its latest site, in Wembley Park, later this year.
