Groundworks by the De La Warr Pavilion
Groundworks by the De La Warr Pavilion
Long redevelopment of the grounds by the De La Warr Pavilion. This area was formerly a mini-golf course. New apartments on corner of Sackville Road and Marina seen ahead centre.
The Landmark & De La Warr Heights :: TQ7308
The Landmark consists of 66 flats with retail units at ground floor.
De La Warr Heights consists of 24 flats with retail units at ground floor.

The two buildings sit prominently on the roundabout at the junction of Sackville Road, Egerton Road, Marina and West Parade. The buildings are a stones throw from the Grade I listed De La Warr Pavilion.

These huge embarrassment of buildings were finished in 2010, and both now look extremely shabby and dull. The oversized buildings stand five and half storey's higher than the neighbouring attractive Victorian and Edwardian buildings and the dull architecture of these monstrosities is clearly designed to maximise the amount of flats (and therefore profit), whilst sacrificing all aesthetics on the outside.
