The Chimichanga unit will be vacant soon as Prezzo are closing the whole chain. Was surprised to see that both Prezzo restaurants in Cardiff are to remain open, they must both be fairly busy.

Interesting. I just looked at this yesterday and no updates. They must have sensed the interest from us geeks.

I just read this. My opinion on marketing/comms people has taken a knock recently after seeing some shoddy work (not where I work incidentally). But this is pretty shocking given this is an asset worth upwards of £600 million.

Here are some quotes:
brochure wrote:A new train station has been
confirmed for Bow Street, Wales and
a total investment of £3.95m from the
Department for Transport which is set
to be complete by March 2020.


First of all, that sentence isn't proper English. Second, why are they telling us about a small station in Ceredigion, around 100 miles or so from Cardiff?

brochure wrote:Works are progressing on phases
two and three of the 265,976 sq ft
scheme which will include a new
£120m headquarters for BBC
Cymru Wales, and are scheduled
for completion by 2018


Erm, what scheme? I know what it is, but the brochure just says this without saying the scheme...

brochure wrote:After 10 years of deliberation, Cardiff’s
bus station plans have been approved
and works are due to start in April 2018.
The mixed use development is set to
include a 14-stand bus station, retail
space as well as offices and apartments.


Who on earth thought it would be good in a marketing brochure to talk about 10 years of deliberations being required for a bus station?

Did noone at Intu spot this? Noone at St Davids management team? Its just shoddy and if I were an investor at Intu, I'd be disappointed. And a manager, ashamed.

What the hell? That's got to be the weirdest quote ever! How on Earth is a station outisde Aberystwyth of any relevance! That's just plain bizzare!

Some exciting news for the Upper Grand Arcade!

Following the successful arrival of Stradivarius, Inditex are opening their sixth UK Bershka store in Cardiff. At present Bershka currently operates four stores in London and one in Brighton. Bershka is one of Inditex's key facias in Europe and is most certainly a coup for Cardiff.

A planning application has been submitted for the unit previously occupied by Mothercare (UG01/02). A great location for the brand directly opposite Stradivarius and alongside New Look & H&M!

Sadly, Bershka will not be making use of the Mezzanine floor and therefore the store will be over one level.

LandSec/Intu have done a great job developing their relationship with Inditex in order to secure these brands in Cardiff. It would be great to see a Zara Home store in one of the units outside John Lewis on the Upper Grand Arcade and potentially Pull & Bear in the unit once occupied by DV8.

That's great news. Their clothes are very affordable as well, so it'll be interesting to see how they do in Cardiff.

Pull & Bear next if Berksha does well? In Dubai they have both right next to or close to each other in most Malls.

Mountain Warehouse owned stationary retailer 'Neon Sheep' are opening their fourth U.K store in Cardiff on October 12th in the unit previously occupied by Ecco (Unit 30 - St. David's Way).

Ecco are apparently relocating to the Upper Grand Arcade. No unit conformation thus far, however I'm assuming they'll either occupy UG32 or UG28...
