The new Princess Quarter office building scheme is set to add 15,000 sq ft of Grade A office space to Swansea city centre by early 2024.
Extensive redevelopment is transforming a four storey 1950’s building on the corner of Princess Way and St Mary Street. The redevelopment by local developer Kartay will create retail units on the ground floor with three storeys of superior office accommodation above.
Kartay has now appointed property consultants Knight Frank and Glanmor Chartered Surveyors as joint letting agents to market the scheme.
Matt Phillips, head of the South Wales office of Knight Frank, said: “The building will offer a different dimension to the city centre in terms of its quality, specification and green credentials.
“Its sub-dividable office space will offer the very best in office facilities, including a green rooftop terrace and three glass rooftop meeting suites offering panoramic views over the city centre and Swansea waterfront.
“A luxury new ground floor reception area will feature an impressive backdrop waterwall feature, communal seating and full-time concierge receptionist.”
Princess Quarter will also offer shower, changing facilities and secure cycle storage for office staff, and has been designed to achieve an EPC A energy rating with sustainability and renewability features to reduce the building’s long-term carbon footprint including a highly efficient all-electric heat pump system.
Dominic Garner, managing director of Glanmor Chartered Surveyors, added: “The building is situated in the heart of the city centre amongst vibrant and diverse shops, bars and restaurants with the City’s impressive new Copr Bay Arena and landmark bridge just 300 yards away. We are delighted to have been instructed by Kartay, and to continue working closely with them to support their ongoing redevelopment of a number of key buildings in the City Centre.”
Ian Morgan, director of Kartay, said: “We are committed to our city and passionate about investing and redeveloping to ensure the area positively evolves to become one of the UK’s most successful cities.”
