Cardiff Bay Prospect Place Tower Development to Restart
The company has applied to Cardiff Council to amend the layout of the tower, known as Block T, to change 10 of the apartments from one-bedroom to two-bedroom. If approved, an extra 25 car parking spaces and 38 bicycle storage spaces will also be added to the scheme.
Bellway’s corporate affairs manager Julian Kenyon said that if the proposed changes are approved, work would restart on the tower early next year. He said: “Following the completion of our successful Quayside development we wanted to maintain momentum in Cardiff Bay, and we are confident that the level of demand will support the completion of this landmark building at Prospect Place.”
The move comes only months after plans for the neighbouring £200m Cardiff Pointe development were submitted by Greenbank Partnerships. Under those plans to go before the council in the autumn, 634 houses and apartments will rise up on the peninsula next to the International Sports Village (ISV).
Cardiff Pointe will feature two landmark towers, standing 18 and 24 storeys, and 10 five-bedroom waterside houses – each with a £1m price tag. The development also includes proposals for two social housing schemes, made up of 217 apartments, on separate sites nearby.
If approved, the first would see 156 social housing apartments built on a site known as the ISV Office, opposite the Victoria Wharf apartment towers on Watkiss Way. A further 61 units would rise next to Morrisons supermarket on Ferry Road.
