But on the plus side, that means we have 2-3 years worth of construction progress photos to drool over.

I'll probably end up doing a time lapse of the construction. Should be pretty neat!

Politics aside, this is a huge building and will change the feel of Central Square. Wales Online mentions that one more office block will be built to complete the master plan (minus the public space), not surprising given its location to their offices!

"..extraordinary social outcomes"? Who on earth writes this meaningless verbal-garnish twaddle?

I guess the question is, how many jobs are being created and how many are being moved from Knox Rd?

The plan is to move every L&g employee to the new building.

Where do they actually say they are moving? They are funding the development via their investment arm. I've not seen anything say they will also become an occupier.

There's nothing in the public relm about the move, but internally comms have gone out saying they will be moving into new building in 2022. L&g have requested an extra floor to be added to accommodate all staff from their Knox Court and Brunel house office's. Not sure the extra floor has been approved but I think L&g used 'securing jobs remain in Cardiff' as leverage?
