Life looks good at Dixie …

Cardiff Bay. It’s Europe’s largest city centre waterfront. It’s alive, vibrant, sexy and cool. More than just an annexe of the city centre, the Bay has its own identity. One which was forged by its rich multicultural heritage to become the cosmopolitan cool that it is today. It’s got bars, restaurants, cafes and culture.

Portabella presents Dixie: A stylish, contemporary building sitting alongside some of Cardiff’s most iconic venues. It’s an energetic development of 43 cool apartments, each designed with lifestyle in mind.

The apartments are a range of one and two bedrooms with balanced layouts which have been optimised for space and comfort. The block has a stunning podium courtyard garden, an urban oasis providing outdoor living space which includes a yoga lawn for the communal enjoyment of residents and their guests.

Dixie, Cardiff


We wanted these apartments to have features that you wouldn’t ordinarily expect in apartments at these prices. We also wanted them to stand apart from the crowd. So we thought about what we could include to do that: There were ten things on our list. We decided not to choose between them but to include them all. We call them #MyPerfect10.

Portabella is synonymous with high quality, innovative design and Dixie is no different. Each apartment has a bespoke kitchen and bathroom design and we realise the importance of some things. That’s why we picked the larger rain head showers and it’s why we wanted an entertainment package which includes an iPod Touch and Apple TV.

You can even get data on the move with Wi-Fi available in the communal areas plus outside in our sheltered podium courtyard. This landscaped private garden is about kicking back and relaxing, sharing downtime with mates and neighbours – Its central feature is a yoga lawn, a calming place for quiet reflection.

The location here is excellent, on the doorstep of Mermaid Quay and right opposite the train station with a quick and frequent link to Cardiff Queen Street. The city centre is within easy walking or cycling distance too plus there are plenty of bus services on the doorstep. It really is a ‘go anywhere’ location. For those who select a car parking space, this is accessed via a remote roller shutter door. Within this secure garage is also ample bike storage for all residents.
