Overview

The Sands is a stunning seafront development which has become a new landmark on the Scarborough coastline. Its imaginative curved frame and modern detailing has made it a symbol of 21st century regeneration within one of the UK's best-loved seaside resorts.

The Sands consists of 100 luxurious apartments set across two five storey blocks complete with gym, communal areas, seven ground floor retail units, associated external works and multi-storey car park.

The development is set within the stunning North Bay, Scarborough, surrounded by high quality woodlands and landscaped parkland and overlooks the ‘blue flag’ beach.

The scheme includes a selection of one, two and three bedroom apartments whose open plan design and external balconies provide modern living spaces connected with their picturesque environment. Four penthouse suites benefit from panoramic views of Scarborough North Bay and Castle.

Blocks were constructed using a light gauge steel frame incorporating concrete floors that provide noise attenuation between properties. An external insulation system was applied to the structure, before applying the waterproof through coloured render system. The finished design features curved, rendered facades and flat roofs that are reminiscent of art deco resort architecture.

As part of the works for Benchmark, most of the existing seafront chalets were demolished and replaced with new solid timber "log" type structures.
