SA1 Swansea Waterfront
SA1 Swansea Waterfront will form the nucleus of a vibrant waterfront development creating exciting new opportunities for Swansea.
To begin with, it's a waterfront development. We know there's nothing new in that; many waterfront and dockland areas of our cities have been given new life in the recent past. But these dockland rejuvenations are often stuck out on a limb, slightly removed and set apart from what already exists. They are places you can only go to and from, not places that have the potential to be the hubs of vital future life.
That's where SA1 Swansea Waterfront is different and offers such unique opportunities. Rather than being peripheral, it is a vital part of Swansea set in the real heart of the city; a location wonderfully equipped to house vibrant life and work and leisure, an area capable of sending ripples of development out from its centre. SA1 Swansea Waterfront isn't just another docklands make-over. It's a unique urban opportunity.
SA1 Swansea Waterfront aims to build upon Swansea's growing popularity whilst maintaining a strong sense of community. This will be achieved by integrating the site with the city and supporting existing and anticipated developments in the Maritime Quarter of Swansea Waterfront. Footbridges will be instrumental in creating strong visual, physical and functional links between the two key waterfront areas. Green areas such as a new public square at the western side of the site and public art will be incorporated into the planning to provide a vibrant and attractive environment in which to live, work or visit.
SA1 Swansea Waterfront will become a lively, attractive waterfront destination fostering a high standard of urban design and architecture with an emphasis on innovation, modernity and flexibility. The development potential of the scheme will be optimised using an imaginative mix of land uses and urban design solutions. The development will be implemented in phases where each phase can be economically serviced and completed in a self-contained and sustainable fashion. Office developments will focus on high quality accommodation attractive to SMEs and corporate bodies, particularly in the e-commerce and knowledge based sectors, and residential development opportunities will include predominantly high density waterside housing.
