Oyster Wharf in Mumbles is the exciting new brand which is proposing major redevelopment to the Mumbles waterfront. Developer Nextcolour Limited release news of the exciting and extensive regeneration plan.
The scheme will see the development of sophisticated restaurants, a gym / spa and new retail facilities. The Tivoli will also be reinstated as the focal point of Mumbles’ historic waterfront as part of the regeneration initiative.
The iconic Tivoli building will be fully refurbished together with the existing retail arcade. In addition to this, the Tivoli’s Art Deco inspired façade will be rejuvenated and the community can expect to see its exterior restored to its former glory.
“The upcoming regeneration project is a vital step for Mumbles and will retain the status of the village as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Swansea Bay,” said James Morse, commercial director at Nextcolour Developments Limited.
“Oyster Wharf will become a spectacular centrepiece within the community. The finished development will offer the perfect mix of retail, food and drink for the whole of Swansea, and become a destination for those looking to explore the history, heritage and beauty of Mumbles from surrounding areas and further afield.”
As part of the development The Co-operative Food will relocate from its existing Mumbles Road premises to occupy the former amusement arcade on the ground floor. As a result of the move, Nextcolour will acquire the Co-operative Food’s existing Mumbles Road premises, adjacent to Costa Coffee, which will be converted into two further retail units. The seaside village is renowned as an upmarket retail destination, and the development will enhance the retail mix.
“Whilst the area is already a cultural and tourist hotspot, the regeneration is an investment in Mumbles’ future and we hope the development will continue this success and provide greater choice and improved amenities for the wider community,” concluded James.
John Hillman, acquisitions manager for The Co-operative Food in Wales, said: “The Co-operative Food is proud of its record of operating at the heart of many communities, and this is very much the case in Mumbles. The investment will bring a bright, modern store with an extensive fresh produce range and excellent customer service. It will ensure an enjoyable shopping experience where people will be able to pick up delicious food conveniently.”
