It's not in a conservation area but the Golden Cross is a listed building so it's protected in another way. IIRC it's the internal and external tiling that were the reasons for the listing.

While I still think the terrace should be preserved, this article suggests that the situation is more nuanced than it appears and that the Rapports may not be as rapacious as some (myself included) have suggested.

The article suggests that the businesses involved were on short-term leases at their own request as they knew that the buildings were due for demolition. According to the Rapports the Madeira took the opportunity to relocate (to Ty Madeira) while Gwdi Hw and Thai House chose not to.

I've no way of knowing the truth of these claims or otherwise but M.A Rapport would have done well to have made them earlier. The company does itself no favours in PR terms. Then again, maybe they think PR doesn't matter.
