Following on from discussion on the Dolffin Quay thread, I decided to get in touch with Igloo asking if there were likely to be any updates on Porth Teigr. Now I appreciate they probably cannot say much due to commercial sensitivites, but there wasn't even any "we're looking at a lot of exciting opportunities and there is significant interest in Porth Teigr" generalities. Instead the reply focused on their community outreach/sponsorship work:

"You seem to be up to date with the latest news on Porth Teigr, although we are also providing support via the Porth Teigr Community Fund to cycling charity Pedal Power, The Wallich homelessness charity ... AsyT8P8HAQ, the forthcoming Butetown Carnival ... 3846760156, the WMC's production Tiger Bay The Musical ... /TigerBay/ and also a "phygital" event (details attached)."

Not entirely what to make of this. Does it mean it really is all quiet on the development front? Or is the fact they are continuing to do this sort of thing part of the PR for a scheme that will be bringing plans forward?

That's either an automated response or a huge swerve of your question. I wouldn't be surprised if they're just sitting on the land waiting for a developer with deeper pockets to buy them out.

I called Savills because I was hoping to buy one of their flats this year (it still says 2017 on the Porth Teigr website). They said that the project (at least the residential aspect) is in limbo and the masterplan is being resubmitted to planning. They said nothing would be happening this year and they weren't sure about next year. It's sad because there aren't really any other sustainable projects like this going on in Cardiff. :-(
