Multi-million-pound Morecambe seafront development underway

Work is underway on a multi-million-pound residential development that will give Morecambe a new iconic building.

Local developer Stainton Bespoke Homes is building the exclusive scheme of 50 apartments on the site of the former Broadway Hotel at the corner of Broadway and Marine Drive East.

The company acquired the site last year and gained planning consent for its scheme of apartments earlier this year. The stunning one, two and three-bedroom properties will be known as The Broadway and is expected to be complete at the end of 2018.

The building will feature a striking glass and clad façade and will rise from four-storeys on Broadway to eight-storeys at its junction with Marine Drive East.  

Michael Stainton of Stainton Bespoke Homes, was joined on the site by Allan Sumner of law firm Harrison Drury to officially mark the start of works. Harrison Drury has advised the company on the legal aspects of the development and has also been appointed to represent the developer on the freehold sale of the individual apartments.

Gail Stainton, of Stainton Bespoke Homes said: “This project will give Morecambe seafront a new building of distinction, revitalising this area of town with quality residential apartments. We were keen to acknowledge the history of the site and we did a lot of research into the story behind the Broadway Hotel.

“The hotel opened at the same time the A6 was built through the area and brought more holidaymakers to Morecambe. We hope that by building this development at a time when the Bay Gateway is bringing more visitors and investment to the town we can enjoy a similar success story.”

 Allan Sumner, commercial property lawyer and head of Harrison Drury’s Lancaster office, said: “This will be a landmark residential development on a prominent corner site in Morecambe. It will provide a real uplift to the seafront by regenerating a plot of land that’s been vacant for over two years.

 “MH Stainton has been named as developer of the year, so it’s a real privilege to be working with such a well-regarded firm on what will be a marquee development for the area.”
