Loft Co, the company behind the redevelopment of the Pumphouse and Windsor Lofts has completed the purchase of the Goodsheds.
Mr Baston, who was also instrumental in the redevelopment of the Tramshed in Cardiff, plans to put a business tech hub in the brick building, also know as Gwalia Buildings, as well as a high end restaurant and a brewery/wine bar.
On there will be units featuring a number of well-known local pop-up brands. These could include; Hangfire, Meat & Greek, Mr Croquewich, Dusty Knuckle, Hangfire, and Brother Thai.
The top floor of the shipping container unit will be a bar run by the nearby Academy Espresso Bar.
The Developers say the project, which it describes as the UK's first Urban High Street will open in June 2020.

In September 2018 Managing Director of DS Properties, Simon Baston, stated “DS properties are absolutely delighted to announce that they are continuing their partnership with the Vale of Glamorgan Council in purchasing the iconic Goods Shed. DS anticipates that the scheme will provide over 200 long term employment opportunities. It will also give an affordable and flexible solution to small and medium size enterprises in the Vale.
“DS genuinely believe that this is a new ‘urban high street’ for the 21st Century and is pleased that the Local Authority has seen the benefit of this scheme for residents as well as local businesses.
