Project story

In the evolving student quarter of Cardiff - one of Europe’s fastest growing capital cities - the availability of private sector student accommodation no longer meets demand. Student numbers are rising and so are expectations.
Today’s student population is seeking a modern living environment with well specified facilities and amenity areas. 

As land owner and developer we will be replacing the West Wing of Cardiff Royal Infirmary with a 644 bed student scheme. Shaped by feedback from intensive community consultation, the scheme will offer up to 10 storeys at its highest point and include a mix of apartments, studio-style living and cluster accommodation, all set within a secure, high-quality development.

Residents will have full access to an on-site multi-media room, gym and yoga studio, a private dining facility and study areas. The development will be further complemented by a private courtyard - providing dedicated open space for the students. 

Scheduled for completion ahead of the 2019 academic year, The West Wing will be one of just a handful of new schemes on the Cardiff market.
