Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt bags planning for £25m Cardiff build to rent scheme

  • Comment

Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt has been given the go-ahead for a £25 million housing-led scheme in Cardiff city centre for build-to-rent developer PLATFORM_

The 14,783m² mixed-use development, on the site of the former Browning Jones & Morris builders’ merchants near Cardiff Central station, will range in height from eight to 12 storeys.

The project includes 206 apartments, communal dining facilities, a residents’ lounge, gym, bike club space and 622m² of ground-floor retail space.

According to the Basingstoke and London-based practice, the buildings are designed as ‘a family of contemporary warehouses to reflect the site’s industrial heritage’.

The four-block scheme will be built from a ’simple material palette’ of precast concrete, brick and anodised aluminium.

Work is expected to start on site shortly and complete in early 2021.
