Proposals for a major residential-led mixed-use scheme at a key site in Cardiff, which is set to provide more than 430 homes, gained the go-ahead this week.

Cardiff City Council’s planning committee approved a joint venture between Angelo Gordon and Ridgeback Group for a one-hectare site at the Anchor Industrial Estate on Dumballs Road in Butetown.

The development is designed to deliver 432 flats arranged in two buildings, set around a central garden and plaza.

The two blocks would consist of 252 one-bed and 180 two-bed apartments, with balconies, a gym and homeworking space. One block would be 16 storeys high and the other nine storeys.

The officer’s report considered by the planning committee recommended approval. It said: “The scheme would bring a vacant/underused site into beneficial use with associated regeneration benefits, would promote the efficient use of land, make a positive contribution to housing supply, and deliver a resource efficient and climate responsive design.”
