This is what the new residential down at Cardiff Bay will look like. Anyone brave enough to take a flat cantilevered out over the water's edge? Affordable housing will be discreetly tucked away on two adjacent sites.
Plans have been submitted to Cardiff Council by Greenbank Partnerships for the £200m Cardiff Pointe development. Out of 634 of the Scott Brownrigg-designed units 235 will be two, three, four and five bed houses. But the balance will be flats in those two residential towers, something most developers outside of London have trodden very carefully with.
And that's with good reason, you don't need to delve too far back into the Bay's history to find stories of hundreds of empty flats. It's a different market now, different, but not necessarily better. The market will be eagerly watching how these fare.
