Maybe it's finally going to be demolished for that new development, but not sure why they wouldn't just knock it down if so. At least something is actually happening unlike The Capitol!

Will have a look tomorrow if I can get a train from London, was a massive fail today.


Dug this out from February, it mentions turning the ground floor into housing amongst other things. Assumedly that rules out the redevelopment plans from 2021.

I read it as they were clearing the ground floor in preparation for the already announced mixed use redevelopment. The 2021 plans were for retail and A3 uses at the street and lower levels with hotel and housing above. I cant see any way you could convert the existing lower ground level, with very little natural light and a working shopping mall above, into housing.

I assume they are stripping it back to its shell so they can close it off and minimise any maintenance costs.

That would make far more sense, it may be Wales Online's writing that is the issue.
