The Mill, Cardiff

The former Ely paper mill in Canton, Cardiff – once the leading producer of newsprint in Britain – is being transformed into one of Wales’ largest-ever regeneration programmes thanks to a £100 million partnership between Lovell, Tirion and Cadwyn.
The 53-acre site closed down in 1999, taking with it hundreds of local jobs. The Mill, an 800-home urban village with its own neighbourhood centre, community hall and parks, is set to bring over 1,000 new jobs to an area blighted by unemployment. With financial backing from the Welsh Government and Principality, this reclaimed industrial site will create a vibrant new community of high-quality one and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses.
“Supporting this development goes to the heart of our purpose in helping people access quality affordable housing in an attractive environment. In recent years we have invested heavily in local communities through a variety of both commercial and residential projects. The Mill project will hopefully pave the way for similar schemes across Wales.”
