Embassy Court is an 11 storey block of flats situated on the Brighton seafront on the corner of Western Street and the Kings Road. It was designed by the architect Wells Coates and completed in 1935.
It is amongst of the most outstanding examples of pre-war Modernism in the UK, it has a grade II* listed status and remains a major Brighton landmark. This beautiful, elegantly proportioned block contains 72 flats, with awe-inspiring sea views, is considered one of the coolest places to live in Britain.
Restored in 2005 after a long period of decline, Embassy Court is now owned by a limited company, Bluestorm Ltd., born from a Leaseholders Association which obtained the freehold of the building in 1998.
The shareholders of the company are all leaseholders at Embassy Court, some in residence and some landlords, but the freehold is firmly in the hands of those with a vested interest in the future of the building.
The company is run by a board of elected volunteer directors, all leaseholders, who undertake the care and maintenance of the building with the aid of local Managing Agents, Harper Stone.
