Priory Gardens and Ty’r Orsaf have both been shortlisted for the 2019 RICS awards as Morganstone looks to add to its ever-growing list of awards.
Ty’r Orsaf in Port Talbot has been shortlisted under the regeneration category whilst Priory Gardens in Ewenny has been shortlisted under the residential category.
Priory Gardens was built in partnership with Westacres, an associate company of Morganstone Ltd. It is a luxury development of distinction on land that once formed part of the Ewenny Priory estate in the Vale of Glamorgan. Whilst being delivered to a modern, innovative and top-quality design and specification, the properties fit seamlessly within their quiet, rural surroundings.
Tonia Morgan, Director for Morganstone and Westacres, said: “At Westacres, we have a vision of instilling quality at the heart of every development and strive to ensure that every aspect of the design and construction process is carried out with exemplary standards of workmanship.
Ty’r Orsaf involved the complete demolition and breath-taking rejuvenation of the rundown Port Talbot Police station, which was occupying a key site that needed to be redeveloped as a critical part of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council’s regeneration agenda.
The building now comprises of a striking three storey collection of 30 affordable apartments and three ground floor commercial units.
The development was built in partnership with Pobl as part of the wider regeneration agenda of Port Talbot.
Ty’r Orsaf was supported by the Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places capital programme which was created specifically to contribute towards regeneration schemes in town centres, coastal communities and Communities First areas.
Ian Morgan, Managing Director for Morganstone, added: “We are delighted to have played such a key part in not just the Ty’r Orsaf development but the wider regeneration of Port Talbot as well. The building is also a stunning example of the Welsh Government’s VVP fund being used to modernise town centres.”
The category winners and the Project of the Year winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony in in Cardiff in May.
