Figurehead Homes/Greenbank Partnerships
Won via a competition, this significant new residential project in Cardiff Bay uniquely benefits from two waterfronts and will consist of 640 residential units, a mixture of three and four-storey mews townhouses and apartments, as well as ten luxury five bedroom detached family homes next to Cardiff Yacht Club. Two residential towers of 24-storeys and 18-storeys, which dramatically cantilever our over the water will frame the development to the north of the site. The homes will be delivered across nine phases, with the inital phase delivering 43 one, two and three bed apartments and 55 three and four bed houses. A public plaza will provide 750 sq m (8,000 sq ft) of community facilities, bars, restaurants and cafes. The scheme incorporates substantial areas of public realm; a linear park will provide a new public route to connect the two waterfront walks. The development will be set witin a carefully landscaped environment that complements family life.
“This development achieved a striking design in a tricky location. In an oversupplied market, this architecture-led scheme created something unique that responded to a challenging environment. This brave and bold approach exemplifies excellent regeneration and place making.” Inside Housing Development Award Judges
