South Wales Evening Post to move from Swansea office after 45 years

The South Wales Evening Post is to move from its home of 45 years on to a new office in Swansea's high street later this month.

Wales’s biggest selling newspaper will relocate from Adelaide Street to the city’s new Urban Village development, less than a mile away.

Editor Jonathan Roberts said of the paper's old base: "It's been home to some terrific characters and fine journalists and it's important we acknowledge the huge contribution of so many, not just to the newspaper but Swansea itself.

"It may not be considered the city's most impressive piece of architecture, but it certainly has some character, and overlooking one of the main arteries in and out of Swansea is certainly an iconic building in the eyes of many.

"We must, however, move with the times and our new base at the impressive Urban Village provides a modern, bright space more in keeping with the needs of today's newsrooms."

Evening Post managing director Tony Dowling said: "High Street is an area undergoing significant regeneration and — given its central location — is a perfect fit for a business which strives to be at the heart of its community.

"We are confident our decision to relocate to the Urban Village will only act as a catalyst for further redevelopment as High Street continues its transition into a modern, attractive location for businesses in South Wales."
