Why not stick to the office scheme that was proposed? There's clearly a decent market for new offices at the moment.

Isn't this the third proposed use now after offices and student residential?


I think they had a specific occupier in mind for the offices - Blake Morgan (or at that time Morgan Cole). When they went to Central Square I think the owners started looking at other uses.

The Student Resi use wasn't too bad actually - it respected the Custom House much more, and the extension looked more tasteful than this one.


I didn't realise (or forgot) they were lined up, explains alot. The student resi was ok wasn't it?

This though is bloody awful and doesn't respect the existing building at all.

Maybe if we all respond to the consultation we may actually see some results? The problem in Cardiff is the lack of scrutiny planners and cllrs get over planning apps - especially design, as no raises enough concern.

I like it. Depending on the Watkin Jones tower along the way; it may could be a decent compliment.

Not quite sure why people dislike this. Only the facades of the Custom House are listed as the building has long been gutted inside. The facades are preserved. The design looks pretty elegant to me and is clearly intended to match the taller Watkin Jones tower nearby.

That's still assuming that it'll be built. It's not looking good. :(
