Wow that's one heck of a squeeze! Mind you if they trash the holiday inn for a slimmer taller build on site, and the bowling green will have to be a ground share with the blues!! Anyway it would be incredible if we were to get another great stadium for the city and of course the conference centre that Cardiff is lacking. I would love to see some plans for this development as I can't imagine how tightly packed everything would be, those apartments and offices will need to be pretty vertical - Westgate Street flat residents may not be all for this one (mind you it wont harm the price of their properties). Also if the blues develop the leckwith stadium for the time required then that would great for welsh athletics as surely an additional stand would be required. So it's all pretty positive stuff, we'll just have to watch that space!
oh and while we're in the area would this potential development link up with wru westgate st plans?
Yes that's what I was thinking, it would have to be a very high density build to fit all that in including a conference center, mind you could they not put a retractable roof on the stadium and have a conference center and stadium in one, with a nice tall and slender hotel attached?
