The scheme will create a new destination to live and work in the city with access to the River Taff, whilst enhancing the legacy of the original use of the Brewery by retaining the iconic chimney stack and bringing the historic Brewhouse back into use.

The Masterplan includes:

  • One Central Quay – offices over 7 storeys of 14,500 m2.
  • The Brewhouse – offices and leisure totalling 6,500 m2.
  • Multi Storey Car Park – 695 spaces.
  • Residential (BTR) – 715 apartments in 2 blocks of 28 and 20 storeys.
  • Hotel – 220 bedrooms (subject to planning consent).
  • Planned phases for a further 700 units of BTR apartments and offices.

Future phases of the Central Quay area will involve enhancements to Central Station and provision for the planned Metro system for Cardiff.
