JR Smart always seem to be pushing forward and I really hope we hear something about the Callaghan Square development soon. But the last on the Capital Quarter site is number 5 so I'd be very happy if that was the next development they proceed with? A change from the rest of the site and the icing on the cake (in my opinion) for Capital Quarter. Call me an optimist but capital qtr 5, John Street, and the Customhouse tower would be very nice for the area! to slightly extend my wishful thinking and nothing mentioned about this officially to date but I'd love to see Harlech Court flattened (actually there was a proposal about a decade ago) and something pretty tall there - perhaps a residential tower. Then hopefully if we get the new arena down the bay then the motorpoint site would be a great location for another impressive tower! OK last one... instead of Rapports wanting to flatten the madeira - thai house and gwdihw, flatten the rapports building and that, in conjunction with the car park would be yet another site for an impressive development! Although the Rapports building could be allowed to survive (any thoughts on the value of keeping this building?) and then still plenty of room in car park ;)

Nice optimistic thinking there Paul!

Number 5 was sold by JR Smart to the company who will presumably be renting the tower to residents, and is planned for a start in April isn't it?

So not only have their remaining offices been letting well, but they have a bit of cash from the sale of number 5. They sold
the two student housing plots, the number 5 plot plus number 1 and 2 offices. They seem to he doing very well, so market demand allowing it, I'm sure the first phase of John Street will start soon-ish.
