Former seafront hotel given new lease of life as transformation into 42 apartments nearly complete


Working again with our longstanding client The PG Group, we are delighted to be involved in their latest development ‘Promenade House’ on Beach Road in Weston-Super-Mare. The site holds an existing building originally constructed in 2007, which was previously known as Somerset Legion Hotel. In July 2021 The PG Group acquired the building and have since transformed it into 42 one and two bedroom seafront apartments, with the development just having been completed.

Like many of their projects, The PG Group are taking special care to maintain the external character of the building whilst ensuring the interior has a quality finish and meets the needs for modern living. Beech Road is a landmark site of this town, so it is great to see and be a part of revitalising this area for the local community alongside the option of Help-to-Buy being available on all homes providing much needed properties for first time buyers.

“It has been a pleasure to work alongside The PG Group site team and witness this project evolve from a deconstructed shell to a high quality and well configured development of self-contained apartments. Building on a collaborative approach, working towards a mutual solution of compliant homes, with excellent communications from the design team and site manager, has ensured that any Building Control issues arising were picked up early and solutions agreed well in advance of them becoming problematic on site.”

“Promenade House has attracted interest a high level of interest since launching to the market last Summer and as such we now have only a handful of homes available for sale. The sea front location has been a big draw, as has the availability of Help to Buy, while the quality of the build has set the development apart.  Our site and design teams have worked seamlessly with Cook Brown which in turn has assisted in the early delivery of the scheme.”
