PROGRESS TO DATE

Swansea Council is already leading the delivery of a series of transformational projects across the city centre and is working with Welsh Government in a strategic capacity in order to further the regeneration and economic development agenda for the city. The Council has successfully led a City Deal bid for the Swansea Bay City Region, with an associated substantial long term public sector funding commitment to assist delivery.

Construction has started on the £130m first phase of Swansea Central, which will encompass a live performance arena and conference centre, a 1.1 acre coastal park, two new multi-storey car parks, new homes and commercial space and a new pedestrian bridge over Oystermouth Road.

The Kingsway is being transformed into a more attractive environment for people to live, work and visit - and work is due to end in spring 2020. Significant progress has been made to create a city park incorporating new public areas, landscaped parkland, cycle routes and two-way single lane vehicle route along with the creation of wider pedestrian walkways.

The Council is also leading on the redevelopment of the former Oceana nightclub into a 10,000 sq m building at 71/72 Kingsway, comprising incubation spaces for start-up/small businesses working in the ICT, tech and creative industry sectors.

This opportunity to partner with the Council and redevelop additional sites within its ownership will build on the investment already being made by the Council in the city centre and will shape Swansea city centre into a vibrant, 24 hour, living, working, and leisure destination.
