New housing development near Swansea Seafront
Work has just started on our new affordable housing development near Swansea’s seafront.
We're building 29 new homes on the site of the former Pantycelyn Hotel on Oystermouth Road. The £2.95 million development will comprise of 1 bedroom apartments, 3 of which are wheelchair accessible.
The design of the new development has taken inspiration from the surrounding Victorian architecture; a series of gabled bays give the impression of 6 individual rather than one large building and a series of pastel colours have been proposed to fit in with the neighbouring guest houses, complementing the seaside feel of the frontage.
Jonathan Hughes, our Director of Development, said “Our commitment to providing high quality, affordable homes continues with this new development at the heart of Swansea City Centre. We are striving to raise the bar in terms of the standard of modern affordable housing available locally for the Swansea community.”
Local contractors, Gravan Construction, who have recently completed the development of Mumbles Reach and the refurbishment and extension of Hillside care home in Ffynone, are developing the site on our behalf.
Commercial Director of Gravan, Stephen Scannell, said “We are very pleased to be working with Gwalia on this prestigious scheme, working in close partnership with them to deliver a high quality development in a safe and sustainable environment. We believe in investment within the local economy and look forward to working with our Partnering Supply Chain many of whom are located within the Swansea area to deliver an excellent end product for Gwalia and the residents.”
The development is due for completion in early 2016.
