A major new build-to-rent (BTR) complex in the heart of Cardiff is set to climb off the drawing board.

Work on the £25 million project, from BTR specialist developer PLATFORM_, is expected to start shortly with projected completion in two years’ time.

The scheme, which involves a series of buildings from eight to 12 storeys high, is earmarked for the former Browning Jones & Morris builders’ merchants site at Dumballs Road, close to Cardiff Central rail station.

The proposals, designed by architectural firm Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt, is another sign of growing developer and investor interest in the BTR sector in the Welsh capital.

The project will include:

  • 206 apartments;
  • communal dining facilities, a fitness centre and a bike club space; and
  • ground-floor retail space.

Each of the scheme's blocks will also have communal landscaped courtyards with roof terraces.
