I thought that now the Dolfin Quay development had been cancelled that Cardiff Council was buying that area from its owners in order to retain the area as open space.

You may well be right. I hadn't heard that.

Not quite, they are buying it to keep it as a 'lesiure area' not neccessarily 'open space'. Here's the quote:

The council says it wants to buy the land to protect the bay edge for leisure use and to enhance Cardiff Bay.

Subject to planning permission, the site "provides the potential to create a new Bayside restaurant and leisure quarter which will enhance the amenity of Cardiff Bay," a council report says.

We certainly need something to bring in the visitors, especially since the closure of the Dr Who exhibition. Has there been any further news about the future of that building and/or the land it sits on? And some more places to eat would be useful; at weekends the restaurants at Mermaid Quay are often jam-packed (even the poor ones...)
