The shiny underside of the roof of the BBC building looks absolutely gorgeous.

I think the car park at Capital Quarter is exclusively for the people that work/live there.

Central station really does need an upgrade. As beautiful as it Is, it looks tiny

Even if it was open to the general public, it's tucked away and a bit of a walk for people wanting to use the coach station / train station etc. The south side / Central Quay will need a multistory for sure.

Agreed. Slightly annoying that Network Rail won't be able to get it done until after 2020 (control period 6)

IF in the next 10 years we have a redeveloped Cardiff Central, a completed Central Square to the north, and to the south, most of the Central Quay, Cardiff will have one of the best, possibly THE best looking city centre outside London. The area surrounding the train station will look incredible.

I'm really impressed with the build quality of Central Square so far. JR Smart and their architectural clients are doing a superb job.

What's control point 6? Why can't they develop Cardiff Central until 2020?

For the first time ever, Cardiff Central will actually be worthy of its name!
Build it and they will come.
Get it wrong and they will fall off.
