A unique waterside setting
Regarded as the axis of Llanelli Waterside the eighteen acre North Dock site is at the heart of the Millennium Coastal Park and overlooks Carmarthen Bay and the rejuvenated dock.
It therefore offers a unique waterside setting that’s sure to provide an appealing environment for a variety of uses.
Prime waterfront developments include commercial office space in the shape of the recently completed Dragon 24 complex which offers 30,000 square feet of BREEAM Very Good accommodation and an enviable working environment for modern businesses.
Dragon 24 has transformed the dock edge and forms a business district that links into the town centre itself and right across Llanelli Waterside into developments at Burry Port and Delta Lakes.
New Waterfront housing has already been built with stunning views over the estuary. The Discovery Centre – a landmark building housing a restaurant, tourist information, ice cream parlour and meeting facilities – sits in the centre of the site with the promenade running alongside.
The Pumphouse – an exciting plan to transform an eye-catching and historic grade II listed building on North Dock into a restaurant and chef academy is currently underway and scheduled for completion in spring 2011.
North Dock has evolved organically over the years generating a variety of development opportunities. It has steadily grown into a natural visitor destination with increased footfall year on year due to the many leisure activities North Dock offers.
At the head of the dock lie the immediate development opportunities – suitable for commercial uses such as a café bar, restaurant and a landmark hotel.
These will create a lively visual focus from the bridge accessing the dock and generate linkages further west along Llanelli Waterside into the wider leisure and recreation developments at Old Castle Works.
