Llanelli based construction firm Morganstone Ltd. have been appointed as the contractor to build 160 new homes for Pobl Group at the former University of Wales Trinity Saint David Townhill campus in Swansea.
The new development will transform the former campus site and deliver a high-quality mixed tenure development of 160 new homes that have been designed to make the most of the views and other qualities of the site.
The impressive Edwardian college building will be preserved, overseeing a sensitive conversion and extension of this landmark building into one and two-bedroom apartments that will have spectacular views over Swansea Bay. The remainder of the development will see the inclusion of a new landscaped urban square, generous amenity space and a good mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes as well as a small convenience store.
The development will conserve and maintain a large proportion of mature parkland and open space to benefit both the new residents and existing adjacent community.
“We’re delighted to be working with Morganstone on this exciting new development, and supporting the local supply chain. This development is an example of Pobl’s commitment to building affordable homes and creating great places where people want to live, and we look forward to work starting on the site.” Kate Sinclair, Senior Project Manager - Pobl Group
“Everyone at Morganstone is absolutely delighted to be involved in such a prestigious new development and to be continuing our working partnership with Pobl Group in delivering first class developments. Being born and bred in Swansea, this is a particularly exciting project for me. As a company, we’re always passionate about supporting and developing the city and this is going to be a special project and an equally special place to live.” Ian Morgan, Managing Director - Morganstone
