L&G hands over new BBC Cymru HQ



Legal & General has officially handed over the new BBC Cymru Wales headquarters (pictured above) at Central Square, Cardiff, to BBC director-general Lord Hall.

The new building – which was commissioned by Rightacres Property on behalf of BBC Workplace – is adjacent to Cardiff Central train station and will accommodate some 1,200 staff.

The scheme was designed by architects Foster + Partners, while Legal & General provided funding.

Alan Bainbridge, director of property at the BBC, said: “To hand a building over of this scale and complexity exactly on time and budget is a real achievement.

“We signed the agreement for lease back in December 2014 and the predicted handover date was today – it has been a fantastic effort by all parties and we now look forward to completing the fit-out ready for occupation next year.”

Rachel Dickie, head of urban regeneration at Legal & General Capital, added: “The transformation of Cardiff Central has been phenomenal and Legal & General’s continued funding commitment alongside the development expertise of our partner Rightacres has seen the project evolve at an extremely impressive rate.”
