Project update

Leas Pavilion Stairs 2

We have been made aware and were very surprised of rumours that work on Leas Pavilion has stopped and the project will not continue. We can categorically state that this is untrue.

Work has been progressing at a slower pace because of the requirement to install a sprinkler tank below ground before the reinstatement of the Pavilion structural frame. The design and construction of this has now been completed and full construction work is therefore due to recommence.

The crane is being inspected today and we anticipate it will be in full activity within a week. A re-mobilisation programme has been agreed with the contractor that will see the structural frame completed.

About Leas Pavilion

The Leas Pavilion lounge, restored to its 1902 former glory, is a rare example of a Grade II listed purpose-built Edwardian tea room.

With its ornately moulded ceilings, elegant galleries, the grand imperial staircase and a sprung dance floor it has been the favourite local venue for culture, art and leisure for over 100 years.

Today, we proudly incorporate this former tea room into an avant-garde nine storey residence with 91 luxury sea view apartments.

By combining traditional English heritage with modern architecture from Hollaway Studios, we are able to offer a highly desirable prime seaside location with stunning ocean vistas, grounded in the deep roots of the area’s local history.

All this with high-speed access to central London and an entry point to the channel tunnel just a stone’s throw away; the whole of Europe is at your doorstep.
