TURNSTONE SECURES CINEMA AND HOTEL TENANTS FOR TOWN CENTRE LEISURE COMPLEX IN SOUTHEND ON SEA

May 25, 2017

Turnstone Estates are finalising plans for their exciting new destination family leisure scheme at the Seaway Car Park in Southend and can now confirm that Empire Cinemas will anchor the £50 million redevelopment together with Travelodge Hotels.

The regeneration proposal includes a state-of-the-art 11 screen Empire cinema, including 1,370 seats and their large format IMPACT® Screen, 80 bed Travelodge Hotel, together with ten new restaurants and cafes, two indoor leisure units, a new public square and a multi-storey car park.

Empire Cinemas is the UK’s leading independently owned cinema chain and cater for a wide-range of cinema goers and film enthusiasts. Justin Ribbons, CEO of Empire Cinemas, said; “We are thrilled to be partnering Turnstone to bring this multiplex cinema to the heart of Southend-on-Sea and we look forward to entertaining local film fans for many years to come”.

Travelodge Hotels is the UK’s largest independent hotel brand, with more than 500 hotels and 37,000 guest bedrooms.

The proposals for the Seaway Leisure development will be submitted to Southend on Sea Borough Council this summer and construction could start in 2018. More information about the project can be found by visiting www.seawayleisure.co.uk.

Tim Deacon, Director of Turnstone Estates, said, “Our vision is to create a destination family leisure scheme right here in Southend town centre.  The brand new entertainment facilities will help protect and enhance the reputation of the seafront as a go-to destination for residents and visitors alike. We are very excited to announce Empire and Travelodge and are also in discussion with a number of exciting new tenants for the restaurant and leisure units. We will be making further announcements shortly”.

Carter Jonas acted for Travelodge Hotels Limited. Will Mooney of Carter Jonas commented: “Southend is an important location for Travelodge. We are pleased to have secured a second site within the Seaway Leisure Scheme for Travelodge. The quality of the scheme, the central location and associated restaurant and cinema occupiers were key to Travelodge’s decision”.
