The £300 million Blackpool Central scheme sets the standard for quality and also challenge some general preconceptions about Blackpool. Spawforths architects worked with the planning,and conservation officers at Blackpool Council as well as Historic England to ensure that the existing heritage assets on the edge of the Blackpool Central site form an integral part of our proposals and were not an after thought or overlooked.
The full planning applicationincluded the refurbishment of the existing King Edwards Public House, the redevelopment of the Grade II listed King Edward Picture House and the refurbishment of the King Edward Apartment buildings. The public house will remain in its existing use, with the addition of holiday accommodation at upper levels. The picture house is to be stripped back and fully refurbished to be made ready for a new life as an Artisan Market Hall. The King Edward Apartments being refurbished and brought back into use as an apart-hotel. When complete we are hoping the scheme will become a vibrant hub for the whole site and will attract visitors day and night!
