Cardiff Council approves Vastint UK’s regeneration plans for The Embankment Site, Cardiff

The Embankment, Cardiff

A new, mixed-use, urban district has been recommended for approval by Cardiff Council’s Planning Committee.

Vastint UK’s outline plans for The Embankment Site will see 47 acres of underutilised brownfield land to the south of the City revitalised, providing 2,500 homes alongside 54,000sqm of business space and opportunities for leisure, hospitality and retail.

The proposals will open up the riverside with a new park and green spaces providing pedestrian and cycle links. The redevelopment will enhance connectivity between the communities of Butetown and Grangetown, the City centre and Cardiff Bay.

Stephen Lindley, Managing Director, Vastint UK said We are thrilled that Cardiff Council has given its support for this ambitious, mixed-use development. The Embankment Site will bring much-needed homes, businesses, and amenities to the City, revitalising the area and creating a vibrant, new community.

“Following today’s decision, we look forward to progressing the details of the development, continuing to work closely with the Council, local community groups and key stakeholders.”

The masterplan was developed with the support of Supervene Architects, 3D Reid, Planit, Turley and Stantec.
