That close up does make it look a bit better, the initial render had me really worried.

It'll be one I reserve judgement on until I see cladding appearing on the structure I think. One thing's for sure, it'll be good to see that site used at long last.

I hadn't realised they'd pre-let the restaurant and bar as well, that'll add a bit of street activity as well.

'After Easter' is a bit vague by them though isn't it? It could start in December, that's after Easter!

Seriously though, maybe they meant after the Easter holidays in terms of school holidays. Maybe they just wanted to get that out of the way and be fully resourced before starting, you know what it can be like to get any business done when schools are on holidays, there's always parents off with their kids as well.

Seeing as they have tenants for the hotel and pub and a buyer for the building I can't see them hanging around too long.

Spotted this on the planning portal last night:

https://planning.cardiff.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=_CARDIFF_DCAPR_123472

I’m no expert on piling - or vibrations from passing trains for that matter! But could this be part of the reason for the delay in getting this started?

I know these planning links occasionally time out so search for Ref: 18/00910/MJR

I've been wondering the same myself? but when I wandered past today zero activity - nobody appears to be on site? Call me naive but I was expecting a hive of Custom House St construction activity about now, with this and the watkin jones tower just down the road! :|
