More homes 'earmarked' for Bay.
The go-ahead has been given for 30 "high quality" one, two and threebedroom homes on land next to one of the early landmarks of the regeneration project - the Bonded Warehouse on Atlantic Wharf.
It was originally earmarked for offices but in what is seen as a sign of the changing times, it has been found that there is now more demand for accommodation than commerce on the water's edge.
The eight-storey apartment - to be built on an existing car parking area - is not as high as the initial design for offices after the developer, The Bonded Warehouse Partnership, was asked by planners to scale it down.
It will be a combination of terracotta, concrete, brick and glass with a grey flat roof.
As part of the agreement, the developer will make money available for public open space in Butetown and donate pounds 15,000 towards improving public transport or traffic conditions in the immediate area.
