The Aquarium Terraces

Brighton & Hove News reports today on the proposals to regenerate this large unoccupied seafront site to include a fine dining room (surprise, surprise) and a sports centre. The renovations will include replacing the boarded-up windows, seen above, with a glass frontage. (Evidently optimism reigns supreme).

The rotunda seen above will be unaffected but a separate development  calls for the demolition of the small glass pavilion seen in the photo below:-

It is regrettable that none of the proposals call for any changes to the eyesore that is the roof. It seems more suited to a rundown edge-of-town industrial estate than a Grade II listed property at the heart of a famous historic seafront:-
