Hotel plan for Cardiff Coal Exchange

Developer announces plan for Cardiff's Grade II* Coal Exchange.

Signature Living has announced a multi-million pound plan for Cardiff's historic Coal Exchange after reaching an agreement with City of Cardiff Council to acquire the Grade II* listed former office and music venue.

The building was one of the Victorian Society’s Top Ten Most Endangered Buildings in England and Wales in 2014.

Elaine Davey, Chair of the Victorian Society’s Welsh group, said: ‘In 2014 the Victorian Society was so concerned about the Grade II* Coal Exchange we placed it on our list of England and Wales’ Top Ten Most Endangered Buildings. Since then, the Save the Coal Exchange group has re-opened spaces inside the building for businesses to use and carried out essential repairs. This hard work should be congratulated. Cardiff Council must now work closely with Save the Coal Exchange, Signature Living and ourselves to ensure that one of the most important buildings in Wales is restored to the highest possible standard.’
