Final City Centre Bids Being Submitted Next Week
Each company on the shortlist to redevelop the Civic Centre and St David's sites has until Tuesday September 15 to hand in their final plans, technical drawings and financial proposals.
Swansea Council and their property advisers, Cushman and Wakefield, will then comprehensively assess each of the bids before a report is prepared for Cabinet's approval in November that will recommend the appointment of one or more development partners.
The final bids will include a submission from Bellerophon, who are heading up a consortium bid including M&G (Prudential), Dawnus Construction and SSE & Apollo (IMAX). Bids from Queensberry Real Estate, Rightacre, Rivington Land and Acme, and Trebor Developments will also be considered.
A mixed-use development is being proposed for the St David's site that could include retail, leisure and office space. Outline proposals for the Civic Centre site, which has been recommended as the number one site of Welsh national priority status in a report produced for the Swansea Bay City Region board, include landmark tourist developments and high quality public spaces.
