Developer Urban Centric has submitted a second application to build a 25-storey block of flats on a site at Curran Road, just south of Cardiff Central station.

The company, part of the Portabella group, already has permission for a tower housing 150 units at the same location with a scheme called Gramercy.

Now it wants to construct a building of similar height but with 194 flats, a ground-floor cafe and a roof terrace. Just eight parking spaces are planned for the development.

In 2014 the city council approved the redevelopment of the site with a six-storey office block. However, this was never realised.

Should the development gets the green light, the new tower block would become the first scheme in a wider redevelopment of the Dumballs Road area of the city centre where the council and developer Vastint are contemplating around 2,00 new homes.
