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!!    :)

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!
