The Mill Cardiff
Powell Dobson form part of the consultant team delivering this high profile exciting project. Situated at the site of the Arjo Wiggins Teape paper mill at Ely Bridge Cardiff, The Mill promises to transform this now derelict 53 acre site into one of Cardiff's most attractive residential areas.
Proposals are for up to 800 homes, a vibrant neighbourhood centre including shops, cafes, community spaces and a pleasant riverside park connected to the wider neighbourhood by new pedestrian and cycle infrastructure. The £100 million development will breathe new life into this previously neglected plot of land. The development will deliver good quality, well managed affordable housing to the city, with as many 60% of the homes expected to be available at below-market level rents. The developer, The Ely Bridge Development Company is a not for profit social enterprise set up through a partnership between the Welsh Government and Principality Building Society, with support from Cardiff Council. The scheme will be delivered via capital market funding with no social housing grant, the investment return comes from the rental income, which means the focus of the scheme is quality in the long term!
