Two buildings which will form part of Cardiff University's £300m research centre have been given the go-ahead by Cardiff council.
The university's innovation campus will be built on land at Maindy Park.
Buildings will house researchers, businesses and students to develop research into practical uses, with work set to start in early 2017.
Vice-chancellor Prof Colin Riordan said: "A new campus helps us create opportunities for all."
The campus will house researchers in a range of fields, including semiconductors and chemical sciences, and a base for start-ups working with the Medicentre at Heath Park.
Each building is 12,000 sq m (129,166 sq ft) and the campus will be linked to the existing business school via a bridge.
Prof Riordan added: "We are hiring internationally-renowned academics who can build world-class teams of post-doctoral researchers.
"We are equipping students with the skills they'll need to set up future ventures."

Scheme for 100 apartments close to Cardiff city centre gets approval

The go-ahead has been given for more than 100 new apartments close to centre of Cardiff.

Property company Portabella , working in partnership with CW Architects, has received planning consent to regenerate the Old Imperial Buildings at Trade Street south of Cardiff Central Station.A unit suitable for retail, café/restaurant and other commercial uses will also be provided, together with 45 parking spaces.

“We chose this location as it is an area rich in cultural history, and one that sits in Cardiff council’s nominated enterprise zone.

"It’s an exciting part of the city which is set to be transformed over the coming years and Portabella is keen to create a building with its own unique sense of place to whilst complementing the area’s architecture.
"We hope to add another dimension, embracing the area’s growing bohemian scene and our plan for the mixed-use scheme marks the first investment in the street since the 1980s.

"And we aim to commence work in spring 2017 with the completion date expected autumn 2018."

A condition of planning is that the developer commits £120,000 to improving the footpaths and carriageway adjacent to the scheme along Trade Street and up to the junction of Penarth Road.

This is what the first completed rooms at Cardiff's Coal Exchange hotel look like

Velvet bedding, grand furniture and even Shirley Bassey - these are the first completed rooms at the iconic Cardiff Coal Exchange.

The dilapidated building on Mount Stuart Square in Cardiff Bay is being transformed into a luxury hotel which will be known as The Exchange.

The £35m development is being completed by Liverpool-based company Signature Living.

Three double bedrooms have been completed and the doors were opened on Saturday for people to take a look inside.

This is the bizarre wedge-shape skyscraper planned for behind the Norwegian Church



This is the first look at a building which could change the skyline of Cardiff Bay.

Developers want to build this 20 storey building at a new development called Dolffin Quay.

As well as 200 homes, there would be new waterfront shops and restaurants.

A new promenade will link the regeneration which began with Mermaid Quay, to new attractions at Porth Teigr.

Under the proposals Britannia Park would get a facelift.

The developer says that the scheme "will enhance the surroundings of the Norwegian Church Arts Centre and the existing pubs and cafés and provide open space for residents and tourists to enjoy all year round".

Associated British Ports will develop an outline proposal for Dolffin Quay.

Regional Director of Associated British Ports' South Wales Matthew Kennerley said: “Our proposals support the continued regeneration of Cardiff Bay and provide a boost to the local economy. We want Cardiff to rival other capital cities across the globe.

"We’re looking forward to sharing our proposals with the local community and gathering feedback so we have the best possible proposal for this important area of the Bay.”

Central Quay Development of Brains Brewery next to the central Station

These are the first images of the Central Quay waterfront regeneration scheme at the Brains Brewery site.

The plans could eventually see three million sq ft of new leisure, residential and office space built in the centre of Cardiff.

It would be the biggest commercial property scheme ever seen in Wales.

Called Central Quay, it covers a 14-acre site immediately south of Cardiff Central Train Station.

The investment would create thousands of new jobs.
The existing eight acre SA Brain & Co brewery site, as well as
Land owned by Network Rail (subject to successful negotiations)
And the existing BMW car dealership site on Penarth Road which was recently acquired by Vastint.

Central Quay is a joint venture between SA Brain & Co and Cardiff-based property development firm Rightacres - which is behind the 1 million sq ft Central Square regeneration scheme immediately north of the train station.

The Brains Brewery site would accommodate up to two million sq ft of commercial developments, including apartments, offices, a hotel, bars and restaurants extending right up to the banks of the River Taff.

And Central Quay would see a further one million sq ft of mixed-used development if Network Rail's four acre site, as well as around the two acres owned by Vastint, are also included.

This 23-storey block of flats in Cardiff's 'Capital Quarter' is set to be approved by planners

These images show a 23-storey block of flats which could be built in Cardiff.

Planners will be asked to approve Number 4 Capital Quarter - the final office block to be built on land off Tyndall Street in Cardiff. The proposal is to build offices of 11,600 sq metres.

Another part of the planning application to be decided by planners is outline permission for a 23 storey residential tower.

The plan for apartments overtakes existing planning permission for a 200-bed hotel on the land.

If the homes get the go-ahead, that block would be known as Number 5 Capital Quarter.

A proposed office block of 6,500 sq m would be replaced with open space.

The application is split into a request for full planning permission for the offices and outline permission for the access and layout of the 23 storey block and courtyard.

The main entrance to the eight-storey office block would be via Tyndall Street and parking would be in the neighbouring multi-storey car park.

The residential tower would be a mix between one and two-bedroom apartments in a building made up of three staggered blocks.

Plans revealed for new student flats on the site of a demolished Cardiff pub

Now new plans show an 11-storey building comprising 124 student bedrooms which could be built in its place.

The development would also include communal kitchen and common rooms as well as two shops.

The application has been amended to reduce the size of the building from 129 rooms to 124.

The area facing onto City Road will be four storeys, with the bulk of the tower aspect on Shakespeare Street.

The building would be made out of glass and “feature cladding”, according to a planning application which will be decided on Wednesday.

The site is made up of the former pub and the existing Plumb Centre, and the application includes the demolition of the shop.

The only objection is from a neighbouring commercial unit on Shakespeare Street. The unnamed objector says the development will overlook their property and that it will result in over-development of the area.

It is the latest application for student accommodation to be built on City Road.

The former Cardiff and Vale College has been converted into The Neighbourhood and a new nine-storey block is being built at numbers 11-13 City Road.

Hilton to open in Butetown

A NEW Hilton hotel will kick-start a multi-million-pound transformation of a “neglected corner” of Butetown, developers have claimed.

Plans have been submitted for the 216-bed Hampton by Hilton hotel to rise up on historic Bute Street, near the Wales Millennium Centre.

Cardiff’s economic boss last night said it was a positive sign that the capital was “moving in the right direction”.

Developers want to start construction in May and say it will enable a major office development to finally go ahead.

Construction would take 14 months and it is hoped Cardiff’s first Hampton hotel – the budget brand of the world famous Hilton chain – will open in the summer of 2012.

A planning application has been submitted for the nine-storey building, which will have underground parking, fitness suite and restaurant, to be built on the site of a car park used by local businesses.

The 3/4 star hotel, which will create dozens of new jobs, is being financed by the same Jersey-based trust fund behind plans to turn three heritage-listed buildings into 60,000sq ft of office space.

Skyview Estates Ltd was granted planning permission in 2004 to redevelop the former Custom and Immigration office, Cory Buildings and the Old Post Office.

The plans also include a new five-storey glass building known as Skyview House.

Works to remove asbestos and damp have been carried out, but the recession has been blamed for the reason the buildings remain empty.

Skyview’s planning application states: “It is hoped that this development proposal and subsequent construction can assist in brining life and use back to this somewhat neglected corner of the Bay.”

It says that once the hotel is completed, the returns generated by the project will enable them to develop the three listed buildings.

Project manager Kyriacos Asprou, from EEL European Estates, said that by having a world famous hotel operator on Bute Street would attract high-end tenants to occupy the new offices.

“The hotel opportunity has a lot of exciting potential. It’s a big US brand and they are keen to come to the UK. It would spark the regeneration of Cardiff Bay,” he said.

Councillor Neil McEvoy, executive member for economy, added: “This development shows that Cardiff is moving in the right direction.”

The planning application also states Skyview entered into a contract with the Hampton brand of Hilton after many years of negotiations.

However, a spokesman for Hilton Worldwide yesterday said no contracts had been signed and that it was looking at potential sites across the UK.

“Cardiff is a destination which has attracted our interest and we are in discussions regarding a site, though nothing has been confirmed at this early stage,” she said.
