5 miles north of Cardiff City Centre

Planning Status

Planning consent has been obtained to deliver two new buildings, totalling 65,000 ft2, ready for occupation in 2025

Cardiff Edge is owned by ‘Pioneer Group’ (PG) and ‘Harrison Street Real Estate’ (HSRE). PG are promoting the site on behalf of the Joint Venture. The ambition is to develop Cardiff Edge into the pre-eminent Life Science and Innovation location in South Wales. 

The 27 acre (11 hectare) site is strategically located to the north of Cardiff adjacent to J32 of the M4 motorway and, within 10 minutes’ walk of Radyr rail station. It has good access by foot and for cyclists wishing to use the Taff Trail which runs along the river from the City centre and continues north of the campus connecting a significant number of towns and residential locations. 

Cardiff Edge currently provides approximately 180,000 ft² (16,700 m2) of ‘Life Science and Innovation’ space comprising Laboratories, Clean Rooms, Offices, GMP and support accommodation. The intention is to increase the scale of the site by constructing a further circa 350,000 ft² (32,515 m2) of new laboratories, offices and GMP accommodation, together with a new collaboration hub and associated car parking. 

Planning consent has already been obtained for two new buildings on the campus, the first comprising a new two storey, 55,000 ft² office and lab enabled building. Maximum flexibility has been designed into the floorplates so that it is capable of accommodating both biology and chemistry laboratory requirements. It can be let as a whole or sub-divided for multi-let purposes. The second building is a two storey, 10,000 ft² hub at the heart of the campus which will provide occupiers with a central amenity space that could house a café or restaurant, flexible serviced office, meeting room and break out spaces.

Pioneer Group is working up plans for further development on the science park with prospective occupiers to help create critical mass and build an eco-system that fosters collaboration and innovation.
