Its elevated position takes in expansive views overlooking Swansea Bay and towards the Mumbles and Gower Peninsula making this an excellent proposition to deliver new homes positioned only two miles from the City Centre. The location occupies a southerly slope and is bordered by residential development on three sides and an area of protected greenspace on the eastern flank. Eight University buildings currently occupy the site which also includes an element of recreational land and woodland within its boundaries.
Robert Evans, Associate with Cooke & Arkwright’s Development Land department, which is advising UWTSD on the sale said, “The move by the University to develop a new, purpose built central campus at SA1 has created an exciting prospect for a developer to step in and deliver new homes for the City. It is on one of the main arterial routes to the City Centre and the M4 motorway is just 20 minutes away. Swansea is undergoing exciting and considerable regeneration, with proposals for further projects under consideration. This is energising interest in the City and we expect this site to appeal to a number of developers.”
Emyr Jones, UWTSD SA1 Project Manager added that, “The development potential of this site cannot be underestimated. With panoramic views overlooking Swansea Bay and an allocated housing designation status for around 150 units within the emerging Local Development Plan, the site offers one of the best available development opportunities within the region.”
