94 Conway Road

An Edwardian period mansion transformed and reconverted from its previous use as an office block into six affordable homes at 94 Conway Road.

The existing office accommodation was inefficient and dysfunctional and was not commercially attractive to the private sector or commercially viable for investment purposes. Conwy County Borough Council therefore submitted an application as part of the Vibrant and Viable Places bid to convert 94 Conway Road from office to residential space.

94 Conway Road was a joint project with Conwy County Borough Council, Welsh Government and the Bay Life+ regeneration programme.

The 6 new spacious apartments, over three floors, all have 2 bedrooms plus either a separate lounge or lounge/ kitchen area and are equipped with the latest in heating and insulation.

The Vibrant and Viable Places framework set out a vision that everybody in Wales should live in well-connected, vibrant, viable and sustainable communities with a strong local economy and good quality of life. The Welsh Government defines the regeneration as an integrated set of activities that seek to reverse economic, social, environmental and physical decline to achieve lasting improvement in areas where market forces will not do this alone without some support from government.
