The Mill is a brand-new sustainable community featuring 800 high-quality houses and apartments created on the 53-acre former Arjo Wiggins Paper Mill site, in Canton, to the west of Cardiff city centre.

The £100 million urban village is one of Wales’ biggest regeneration schemes which will create a vibrant and sustainable new community. This flagship scheme will create homes for open market sale by Lovell and homes for Tirion which will be available for rent through Cadwyn.

The new housing includes 358 homes for open market sale by Lovell and 442 homes for rent – which will be managed by Cadwyn Housing Association - for the Tirion Group who are developing the site in partnership with Lovell. The Mill scheme is going ahead with support from the Welsh Government and financial backing from the Principality Building Society.

The Mill is an exciting fast-paced development that came to fruition over two years ago. Members of the public are invited behind the scenes at a major Cardiff housing development for a unique insight into one of Wales’ biggest urban regeneration programmes. Visitors can take a tour with the site manager explaining the process of building new homes and apartment blocks which will include the opportunity to see homes at different stages of construction from foundation stage to over 200 completed and occupied homes as well as viewing the three outstanding show homes and two bedroom show apartment.

Visitors will be able to talk to the site team, watch the skilled workforce, including bricklayers and carpenters, and look round the busy site office, which is the hub for the entire project. They can also find out about the apprenticeships and other training opportunities which form a major part of the development.
