A regional daily has revealed the location of the new centre office it is due to move to next year after 50 years in an out-of-town location.
Planning permission has been granted to bulldoze the newspaper’s current Maesglas office in order to make way for a new Lidl supermarket.
The Chartist Tower building is currently undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment, which will create a 150-bedroom Mercure Hotel, as well as 30,000 sq ft of office space and 18,000 sq ft of retail space.
Argus editor Nicole Garnon said: “This is great move for the South Wales Argus, to be back in the centre of Newport.
“But it is also great news for Newport, as it will bring a significant number of key Newsquest staff right into the city centre. We are very much looking forward to it.”
