DUMBALLS ROAD
Property investment firm Vastint has entered into a joint venture with Cardiff Council to take the Dumballs Road project forward. Previously Bellorophon had plans for 2000+ homes and this it would appear is still what's earmaked for this considerable site. Maybe this will mean that we will at last get some progress for this area, it's been crying out for redevelopment for some time now! walesonline

BUTE ST STATION
SAVED!!

Whoever said nothing good comes out of the Autumn statement! Well there really was great news for this building as it is to become a military museum - with a modern bit bolted on the side. But the most important thing is arresting it's decline and returning it to former glory! well until they extend the metro line anyway!!? walesonline

CAPITAL QTR 4 & 5
Planning Applications for these two buildings are to be considered this week. These are the last 2 pieces of the significant Capital Quarter masterplan. Another plot was earmarked for development but will now be landscaped to provide some green space within the scheme. Capital Quarter 4 is for an 8 storey office block, Capital Quater 5 is for 23 storey building containing 160 apartments - and not student accommodation!! walesonline

CENTRAL QUAY
a joint venture between SA Brain & Co and Cardiff-based property development firm Rightacres. First images have been released for this ambitious project. Central Quay could potentially provide around 1 million sq ft each of offices, apartments and hotel space, plus other mixed-use units. Planning for the scheme's 1st buildings is expected to be submitted to Cardiff Council next summer & construction could start at the end of 2017 Walesonline

DOLLFIN QUAY
This 20 storey development is proposed by ABP Land and Properties for Brittania Park in Cardiff Bay. This would be the tallest building in the area containing 200 apartments plus new waterfront shops and restaurants. There will now be a public consultation on the proposals and an exhibition at Cardiff Central Library on Thursday, November 24. Walesonline Article

POETS CORNER TOWER
This is the 11 storey tower proposed for the site where the poets corners pub used to be in City Rd. It may come as no surprise that this will be for student accommodation (124 bedrooms) if approved on wednesday.This end of City Rd could look quite built up if this is built, as other mid-rise buildings are already being constructed in the area Walesonline Article

BRICKWORKS
The planning Application for this development has been approved. Construction due to start early 2017 on this 100 apartment scheme which has the capacity to regenerate a forgotten quarter of Cardiff and create a new micro-community within a highly sustainable location. Commercial units at ground floor will help to create a dynamic street-scene.

Centre for Student Life on Park Place
Plenty of mixed opinions on this proposed development. A 28m tall building made out of concrete and glass, stretching 140m along Park Place - so you won't miss it if it's built! Anyway new plans will be going before planning committee next week. walesonline article
