Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
Sitting on the banks of the pretty River Tawe, the historic town of Morriston was once home to some of the country's most prolific copper mines and was named after the famous industrialist John Morris, who took over the Llangyfelach Copper Works.
Today, the town has a thriving population and buckets of local charm. The area even won the title of 'most desirable place to live and work in Wales' in a 2015 Royal Mail survey.
Local residents have access to plenty of idyllic green spaces for leisure activities and invigorating walks along the well-marked trails. Morriston Park includes a wildlife area and pond, as well as a large lake with a range of bird life. For keen hobbyists there is also a bowling green and an active golf club. When young family members come to visit the children's play area will provide plenty of activity.
Local public transport offers convenient links to the beautiful Swansea Bay and Swansea Marina, offering beautiful views and fun day trips. On the western edge of Swansea Bay, The Mumbles headland was once home to one of the oldest passenger railways in the world and is now a great place to wander the pier, experience the impressive coastline, or simple enjoy some local ale at the Mumbles Ale House. No trip to the area is complete without enjoying some local seafood at one of the many restaurants and pubs.
The Wales National Waterfront Museum provides plenty of information about the industrial and maritime history of the local area in an engaging, interactive tour. Fans of culture will also enjoy a visit to the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, which has recently undergone extensive redevelopment and includes works by several Welsh artists, past and present.
