High-tech £30m beacon building to be influenced by public

Swansea people are being given their chance to shape one of their city's major regeneration schemes.


The community is being asked to offer views on a concept plan for the £30m development now being planned for the former Oceana nightclub at 71 and 72 The Kingsway.

It is planned that it will cater for new and existing digital businesses, bringing them together in an ultra-modern flexible workspace environment, generating new jobs and vitality for the city centre.

Access for the general public will include a new link from Oxford Street onto The Kingsway.

Led by Swansea Council, the project is part of the wider regeneration of The Kingsway. It also forms part of the Swansea City and Waterfront Digital District, which will be part-funded by the Swansea Bay City Deal.

The public consultation for 71 & 72 The Kingsway starts today, Friday, August 30, and ends on September 27.

People can influence the development by attending a public display planned for the Civic Centre and Quadrant Shopping Centre. Consultation forms will be available there.

The display is due to be on show near the Coastline Café in the Civic from September 3-5 (9am-5pm). Council officers will be available to answer questions from 1.30-3pm on the Tuesday and Thursday.

It is due to visit the Quadrant from September 10-12 (9am-4pm). Council officers will be available to answer questions from 1.30-3pm each day.

Alternatively, residents can have their say by logging on to
