Demolition is well underway on the former EE and Phones4u on Queen Street. The Phones4u is fully demolished leaving the side of Boots fully exposed.

I thought the Phones4u building was quite an old structure judging by its appearance but during demolition it appeared to have a steel frame.

2 key points from Russell goodway's statement to council this month:
Allium Lending Group, a new consumer finance organisation, is going to create a base in Cardiff, up to 100 new jobs

'Canal Quarter' - a new masterplan for the part of the centre that includes Guildford Crescent. Includes public recreation space and reopening parts of the dock feeder. Work in progress, report more in next few months

Would be nice to have a couple more of these back in action. It's a shame we have neglected our canals unlike Manchester, Leeds, Brum et al

'canal quarter' certainly sounds better than 'feeder quarter'
