From Elgdav's second photo it is clear that this has been designed and built in homage to Eastgate House. Hopefully this represents the blossoming of a "New Cardiff Vernacular" that will thrill and delight people from across Wales when they visit their capital city.

When I click on that link I only see 1 photo - of a planning app notice (interesting though). If I click "Next Post" it takes me to a bunch of random viral pics rather than any of Cardiff. How am I meant to see the other pics?

Here is the development at Dumballs Road notified in the planning app.
http://www.dumballsroad-cardiff.com/ass ... s-road.pdf

I'm not sure. Its another Rightacres scheme, so on the one hand, good to get something from someone with a track record of getting things done. On the other, theres got to be a worry they are biting off more than they can chew, especially if the economy were to sour. Highly leveraged property companies often go under in such circumstances - with debts to service, but without the cash flow as transactions dry up.

More generally, while I like aspects of the design, views from certain directions show it standing out like a sore thumb. For instance, the view from Lloyd George Avenue. I can't help but feel from looking at that that it will tower over Canal Park and even over parts of Butetown.

It's fairly close to the Loudoun Square flats though, so I don't think it will seem put of place.

A visit to Vauxhall in London will tell you why this is not necessary in this location. Just as things are starting to slowly fit into place along dumballs road at mid rise level, this arises.

The DAS is poor quality, I've seen better uni student projects. Doesn't exactly sell the quality of the building...
