An opportunity to refurbish an iconic building within the Brunswick Town Conservation Area. The former Lansdowne Place Hotel provides a perfect opportunity to convert into 45 apartments, many benefiting from sea views.
The property comprises a vacant 84 bedroom former hotel with basement parking, ground floor reception, function areas and four upper levels of accommodation with sea views.
The Lansdowne Place Hotel occupies a terrace of six grand houses, originally known as Lansdowne Mansions. One of these was Dudley House, occupied in 1851 as a private boarding school and run by one Prideaux Richards.
The property is located in Hove and sits within the boundary of Brunswick Town, one of several conservation areas in the city. The property is positioned between Brighton and Hove and has excellent proximity to local infrastructure. The A259 Kingsway runs along the waterfront and forms the main connection along the south coast. To the north of the site is Western Road, which provides shopping and local amenities.
The property was formerly six Regency style townhouses, circa 1854, and retains many of the original features. Over time additions have been made to the building including a large two storey extension to the rear (1930s) and a five storey extension to the Brunswick Street West corner (1980s).
The property is suitable for conversion to residential use and is the subject of a planning application for 45 apartments. The application has a resolution to grant approval from Brighton and Hove City Council subject to a S106 agreement.
Disposal is by way of an Informal Tender process, initially seeking written expressions of interest and subsequently offers from interested parties, conditional upon the receipt of a detailed and implementable planning permission.Reference: 226487
