Forming part of the first phase of a larger seafront development, the design for Marine Plaza encompassed a casino, food and non-food retail, a hotel and conference centre and residential accommodation. The proposed 16 storey building provided Southend with a new architectural idiom which would set the scene for the more comprehensive development along the remainder of the seafront. In addition to the building, new infrastructure was planned around the site to allow ease of access from other parts of the town to the seafront and Marine Plaza itself.
