Well things are moving along nicely at Herbert Street! I wonder if this will shoot up quicker than our other exciting tower well under construction at Bridge Street? (tower crane in background of this pic) I know Bridge street has got a significant head start, but will the space restriction at Bridge Street be a factor in terms of construction speed, or not be a factor of any relevance. Regardless of that, both are planned to go up relatively quickly it would seem - and these are (at a Cardiff level!) exciting times for those of us that are looking forward to their contribution to our ever improving skyline. Of course the icing on the cake will be commencement of the proposed tower at Custom House street! (being greedy now! ;) )

Looks as if the piling is to shore up the canal walls ahead of any works. Makes sense, I wouldn't want to pile a piling rig too near those walls!

Well that's pleasant surprise isn't it?

Between this good news and the recent sale of the Number 5 plot for the residential tower developer they'll surely be able to proceed with the John Street site fairly quickly.

Am I right in assuming that Plot 1, 2 and 3 are now fully let? 5 obviously being the residential tower. Any of the 4th plot acquired yet? It would be great to see John Street coming along in early 2019.

Plot 3 definitely fully let based on Which? and this news of Admiral. I don't know about number 1 and 2, but it doesn't matter for J R Smart as they no longer own them. They sold Number 1 a few years ago to the Welsh Government to help fund Number 2. Number 2 was sold by J R Smart earlier this year to Tesco's pension fund.

No.2 is near as can be full. Only Ground Floor free. Rumour was a gym was going there. I think No 1 is full.

All in all its been a successful project and whilst not world class architecture fits in well to its surroundings.
