The Developments Map
The purpose of this map is to show all ongoing developments in Cardiff city centre, to provide a render of the finished development, the planning application and photographic development updates. Also proposed development in the city centre of Cardiff. There are also links from existing structures and other sites of interest. The map is ever evolving and I intend it to be THE place on the internet with such information on Cardiff city developments and construction projects and all on one page!

Manhattan we are not! but...

There's no denying that the Cardiff skyline has changed significantly over the last couple of decades and that trend continues with a fair number of high-rise developments planned or underway. This is my flickr album showing our evolving skyline. As a matter of interest my favourite view of our skyline is from Pembroke terrace on the Penarth headland up by St Augustines church (latest photos from here now in album following my visit on 19th Jan 2020). Whilst even I accept we will never have a skyline to rival bigger cities, our city centre is quite small and therefore even though the buildings we have and those in the pipeline are not very tall, the fact that they are contained in a compact area does make for an interesting skyline!

In my dreams!.. I would love to see a building of 150m (so it actually qualifies as a skyscraper!) constructed in the city centre with an observation platform or bar/restaurant at the top. A mixed use tower perhaps offices/apartment/hotel I'm sure would be a very welcome addition to our city centre. A centrepeice to the capital city of Wales skyline, a welcome message to visitors that we are a forward thinking city! The views on offer at this height would be superb in every direction - To the North... upto the Brecon Beacons, (ok it would have to be located so you can see up the Taff valley) to the South... views over Cardiff bay, the Bristol channel and over to South West England, and all above The castle, The Stadium, Civic centre, Bute Park and a decent number of high rise buildings to make the views more interesting when buildings lit at night! As a matter of interest I'm actually saving up for the construction of this development - reckon I can get it done for £100m so progress is slow, and to date I'm approx. £100m from breaking ground! Ok I did say in my dreams!!    :)

Odds and Sods
Jan 2020:

The genuinely tall tower in the image above is the first image we have seen
of a proposed tower at Harlech Court from Draycott Group
(That's not the official name of the tower - just my suggestion!)

Discussion on Forum here

Feb 2020: A crane base is now in position at the interchange site - the first of maybe 3 or 4 at this site?  
25th Feb 2020:
The massive Central Quay development is still at the demolition of existing buildings stage, but hoardings are now in place showing some great renders of this ambitious project. Pile driving is now underway for the new build element of the Parkgate hotel in Westgate Street. The Interchange site continues to be a hive of pile driving activity - no more crane bases have appeared yet and the one tower crane base remains just a base at the moment. The site of the apartments on Dumballs road is currently void of any activity with the site completely un-occupied - however pile driving perhaps is complete, so I'm not sure when contractors will arrive on site to actually commence construction? The Premier Inn at Customhouse St continues to grow and is now at the 8th level. At John St the 9 storey office development is proceeding and they have reached level 2. Plenty of activity at Bradley court but none of it yet rising above ground level. Pile driving is well underway on the final plot at capital quarter where the prestigious 23 storey apartment tower will be constructed. The Easy Hotel continues to rise at Fitzalan Place and is now at level 6 - only 2 to go.
26th Feb 2020: I asked an ISG employee about construction of crane today and was told that it's as soon as we get a wind free weekend and there will be 3 tower cranes.

Jan 2020: A white paper is out on Metro plans, some great info in here. At Capital Quarter the last plot which is to be 23 storey build to rent apartment block has been hoarded and it looks like construction is iminent. Piling underway at Dumballs Road Apartments. John Street offices under construction and up to level 2. Easy Hotel under construction by Sanderson and up to level 5. The Interchange site at Central Square a hive of activity with piling underway - site hoardings in place but not 'decorated' yet. Construction underway at Bradley court but yet to move above ground level. Work underway on Parkgate Hotel westgate street - construction of new build element has not yet started.

November 2019:
The tower crane is now constructed at Bradley Court.

New plans are out for 2 floor addition of offices southside Transport Interchange.
Looks like the new build of the Old Post Office hotel in Westgate st. will get underway soon.
More positive signs of 15,000 arena moving in the right direction - hopefully know a lot more in November.
HMRC building in central square is named Ty Morgan William (Morgan William House in English)

Through the Grapevine
I've heard a rumour (Jan 2020) that a 29 storey building is being proposed at Guildford Crescent - the frontage of the former Thai House, Madeira restaurant and Gwdihw still remain so presumably this will be integrated into the proposed development - interesting!? Hopefully we'll soon hear something more officially, to confirm or quash this rumour. A 'Canal Quarter' has been mentioned for this area, revealing the canal that currently runs under Churchill Way. It's now October 2020 and we are still awaiting details on this - mind you it's been quite a year!

This Weeks Planning Applications
Whether it's a new roof on Blodwen Jones's outhouse or a 35 storey 5 star hotel with top floor observation/bar restaurant (in my dreams) you can check proposed work here! - hit search
