Digital indoor arena planned for Swansea (artist's impression)


Digital village for tech businesses planned for Swansea (artist's impression)


“As well as projects that will be pan-region, a number of others are planned, with detailed work taking place on all project business cases. These include a Factory of the Future project to help future- proof the regional manufacturing industry, a Steel Science project to help safeguard the steelmaking sector, and the Swansea City and Waterfront Digital District that will boost the ongoing regeneration of Swansea city centre while providing high-quality, modern, affordable office space for businesses.


“Also due to be part-funded by the Swansea Bay City Deal, the first phase of Canolfan S4C Yr Egin in Carmarthen is now operational, with work on a second phase due to start in late 2019.”


Anchored by Welsh language broadcaster S4C, the 43,000 square foot ‘Yr Egin’ development for creative and digital industries, which celebrated its official opening late last year, is already close to full occupation. The building, located at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David campus, includes state-of-the-art offices, post-production facilities, an auditorium, and various spaces for networking and community activities. Aimed at accommodating even more businesses, the second phase of the project, due for completion by mid-2021, will add a further 46,000 square feet of commercial floor space.


Just along the M4 in Swansea, the City and Waterfront Digital District will be made up of three elements – a digital indoor arena and digital square, a digital village for tech businesses, and a ‘box village’ and innovation precinct development for start-up companies.


Set for the LC car park site in Swansea city centre, the 3,500-seat digital indoor arena will accommodate world class music concerts, touring shows, exhibitions, conferences, gaming tournaments and other events. Outside the arena, the digital square will feature digital artworks and ultrafast internet connection speeds. Technology like benches capable of charging mobile phones could also be included.

Co-located with academic expertise, modular space for start-up companies will be made available in a 64,000 square foot ‘box village’ development at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s new campus in SA1. Once these companies grow, they’ll be catered for at the university’s 128,000 square foot Innovation Precinct, which will also house research and development companies with strong university links.


On Kingsway, an iconic, cutting-edge 100,000 square foot digital village will be developed for tech businesses at the former Oceana nightclub site.


Cllr Stewart said: “These projects will combine with others to put the Swansea Bay City Region on the world map as a centre of excellence for global innovation, helping close the economic gap with other, more affluent parts of the UK.


“The City Deal will also help retain regional talent because of the high-quality jobs it will create, combined with the amount of new spaces being developed to meet the needs of enterprise and entrepreneurship.”
