Project Description :

Rio Architects were commissioned by Deeley Freed in 2007 to master plan a vacant industrial site on the banks of the river Tawe in Swansea for a 1000 bed student accommodation development. Proposals were to include some leisure and retail facilities and the scheme was to form part of a wider residential development of private houses and apartments.


The development of this site would form a catalyst for future residential development along a large corridor parcel of industrial land, and was therefore to set an important strategic precedent for this new extension of the City.


Following a detailed submission including meticulous assessments of projected pedestrian and vehicular movement between the development and Swansea City centre, the scheme was approved at planning committee in 2008.
