Gloddaeth Street

Demolition of a derelict property in a historic coastal resort, and replacement with modern, affordable housing consisting of 16, 1- and 2-bed apartments for intermediate rent.

About This Development

This high-profile development was part of a drive towards creating affordable homes in the region. Because of the highly visible location in a conservation area of a Victorian coastal resort, the plans had to be of architectural merit in order to get planning approval. The final design included a mansard roof, which meant spacious apartments could be created right up to the top floor. Brenig purchased the site and managed the whole process, working alongside Creating Enterprise and Cartrefi Conwy. All properties were allocated for intermediate rent which means they’re available at around 80% of the market rate.

How We Helped:

The site occupies a prominent corner plot in the town centre, with limited external storage. This meant space was at a premium and the central location made traffic a significant logistical consideration. Receiving deliveries and storing materials on site were complicated so, to limit disruption, all deliveries were meticulously planned around traffic and the difficulties of storing materials at the site. The nature of the site meant the development had to have a piled foundation with reinforced concrete walls.

The Impact & Results:

The finished building has an aluminium facade set on a structural steel lower frame and a 4-storey, timber-framed panel construction on top. The methods and materials used meant a fast and sustainable build. The project delivered 16 modern, affordable, energy-efficient apartments in a desirable area. The striking nature of the development meant it ended up being a high-profile addition to the town and attracted quite a bit of interest. Brenig also helped renovate and preserve the Victorian tram shelter for the historic Great Orme Tramway, which takes visitors to the summit of the Great Orme, a geological landmark next to the town.
