In scale the Central Quay development, subject to planning, will eclipse Rightacre Properties’ existing Central Square regeneration scheme.
On the site of the existing Brains brewery, and when including six acres of land immediately south of Cardiff Central Railway Station currently owned by Network Rail, Central Quay could see well over 2 million sq ft of new office, retail and apartments built alongside the River Taff.
And it could also be home to the new School of Technologies for 2,000 students from Cardiff Metropolitan University.
A detailed planning application for the first phase of Central Quay is expected to be submitted to Cardiff Council early next year
This first phase will include:
- A 220,000 sq ft landmark office building.
- A multi-storey car park for 650 vehicles.
- A 200-bedroom hotel.
Subject to planning work will start next summer, with a scheduled completion of summer 2020.
