ACME has received planning approval for the first phase of Swansea Central.
Swansea Central creates new sight lines and pedestrian routes from the city centre to the beaches of Swansea Bay. The new bridge, a major new park and the Concert Arena are major public investments, complemented by residential uses and parking spaces in Phase 1.
The 8,825 sqm arena has been designed with a capacity of 3,500 people and able to accommodate major theatrical event, as well as exhibitions and conferences. The development strategically places this major events venue, Swansea Arena, in the area of the old Dockland Coal Drops, as a leisure attraction bringing people back into this part of town.
