Merchant Place...

PostFri Jul 20, 2018 1:19 pm

... appears to be finally happening with Welsh Government money.

The former home of coal firm the Cory Brothers - a rundown five story Grade II-listed structure in Cardiff Bay - is to be redeveloped into apartments and shops with loans of £6m. The Corys' building, on the corner of Bute Place and Bute Street, was built in 1898.

Housing and Regeneration Minister Rebecca Evans the building was "part of Cardiff Bay's historic past".

Most of the cash is being provided by the Development Bank of Wales.

It will be good to see them occupied. Both the buildings are lovely, but a real eyesore at the moment.

Hopefully it will actually happen this time and that might then spur them on to develop the empty plot(s) next door.
