Looks like the bay premier inn will be starting soon, site offices have arrived and hoardings going around the plot.

This is the quite substantial development in the undeveloped ground between the 'worlds coolest carpark' and assembly building. 9 - 10 storeys with port hole style windows!

Thanks both. I remember it now. It's an interesting design and could add to the streetscape if done well.

A man has died after an old church collapsed in Cardiff, South Wales Fire and Rescue have said.

A search was launched on Tuesday afternoon after the building, close to a railway line, came down.

Gareth Davies, from South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, said: "A gentleman was sadly found trapped within the collapsed structure and has tragically lost their life.

The building - known as the Citadel, on the corner of Splott Road and Pearl Street - was due to be demolished

Terrible news! No-one should be killed at work.

A fitting and noble neighbour for our soon-to-be Parliament

That's the strength of the Welsh economy after 20 years of devolution.

Are those hotels located so close to Victoria's Parliament buildings in Melbourne? Wow! I didn't realise that Melbourne's economy had been so bad since the locals took over! My, my...

Seriously, some peope need to get out more. If you don't like the fact that a cheap and ugly hotel is being built next to a cheap and ugly parliament building, then you can blame our forefathers for that. Maybe if the case for Home Rule had been pushed a little harder around the turn of the 20th century then maybe we'd have a Parliament building like Stormont or something grander. Look carefully at the second image, which indicates a old version for the masterplanning of our Civil Centre. You can see "Houses of Parliament" marked on the roof on either side of the portico, on the building just about the gardens.

Perhaps that's being too harsh. Maybe we should just blame the complete and utter morons who commissioned that hideous building (that's already dated) and the idiots who did the masterplanning for the bay, which I understand started before devolution.
