Maybe they know that Bayscape will saturate the market with another couple of hundred luxury apartments and just want to get out before the market corrects.
When you see the kids play houses and prams on the balconies, you just know that vertical luxury living has its draw backs.

Dunno, as I've said before these developments are for DINKS and empty nesters, not for children!

You are correct. However, it really does limit their potential market by a significant amount. I would say at least 75%.

While searching for something else came across this article from 2012. Now that it's all built have the ghettos appeared?

I don't think the social housing flats were ever built.

Yeah, the blocks east of Watkiss Way are social housing as is the block between Morrisons and Ferry Road. I think that the recently cleared site next to Ikea is also going to be developed by a housing association.

They're hardly the 'crime ridden ghettos' that the Nimbys were moaning about though.

Which was the scheme that had the developer wriggle out of its social housing committments by threatening to take its ball home and not build? Was it this one?

Affordable provision for Cardiff pointe was both ISV Morrisons and the apartments and houses on Watkiss way.
