United Living performs topping out ceremony for £55m landmark Cardiff regeneration development

United Living New Homes, Ridgeback Group, and I Live Around (ila) attended a topping out ceremony on 12 September to celebrate the physical construction of its Dumballs Road development in Cardiff.

The event brought together key stakeholders and partners who are working together on the project, including Caroline Lewis, Managing Director, United Living New Homes, Christopher Allen, Development Director, Ridgeback Group, and Steven McCarthy, Managing Director, ila.

The event marked a significant milestone for the project and celebrated the hard work and collaboration of everyone involved.

Located in the Dumballs Road regeneration zone, the £55 million Build to Rent (“BTR”) scheme will deliver 432 one and two-bedroom residential apartments across two blocks. The development is bringing new life to a 40-acre brownfield site and includes low-carbon infrastructure such as electric vehicle charging points and solar panels. This infrastructure will help Cardiff Council achieve its vision of becoming a carbon-neutral city by 2030.  The 432-home project expected to be completed by October 2024.

Caroline Lewis, Managing Director of United Living New Homes, commented: “We are delighted to have reached this significant stage in the Dumballs Road development. The topping-out event presented an opportunity to celebrate the truly collaborative approach all parties have taken in helping to bring this landmark project to fruition.

“We look forward to continuing to work together with our partners, to bring this new vibrant, sustainable community to completion next year.” 

Christopher Allen, Development Director, Ridgeback Group, said:</strong>  “It is a fantastic achievement to have reached this important milestone in the build and we look forward to delivering 432 Build to Rent homes a year from now which will contribute to the wider regeneration of Dumballs Road”. 

Steven McCarthy, Managing Director, ila, said:“The topping out ceremony at this Neighbourhood marks a momentous occasion, underscoring the dedication and teamwork behind this project. At Dumballs Road, we’re not just creating apartment for rent; we’re shaping an exceptional living experience and aspire to become an integral part of the vibrant Cardiff community. We can’t wait to welcome residents to their new homes in 2024.

Mae’r seremoni gosod yn y gymdogaeth hon yn achlysur pwysig iawn, gan danlinellu’r ymroddiad a’r gwaith tîm y tu ôl i’r prosiect hwn. Yn Dumballs Road, nid dim ond creu fflat i’w rentu yr ydym; rydym yn llunio profiad byw eithriadol ac yn anelu at ddod yn rhan annatod o gymuned fywiog Caerdydd. Ni allwn aros i groesawu preswylwyr i’w cartrefi newydd yn 2024.”
