That is the good thing about cardiff, its a big city, yet a small one. It has as good facilities if not better as any of the other uk majour cities, yet you dont feel the rudeness you get in those cities. The city plan is to creat a capital city as good as any other in europe, and one that will attract people not only to the city but to the country as well. Thats why there are so many big projects under development here.

Here are the main things UC in Cardiff right now:

Heritage Gateway Tower - 101m / 31 floors:



Ty Pont Haearn - 63m (estimate) / 21 floors:

You can see it in this pic from page 1 of this thread:



Celestia - Includes 2 towers of 15 or 16 floors (not sure which):



Prospect Place - Includes a few 11 floor blocks and a 19 floor tower, there are pics but I can't find one at the moment.

Thats what i find about most UK cites, because they were constructed when Britain had an empire there was alot of money to spend on large civic buildings. Also Britain is booming at the moment so cities like Cardiff can redevelop areas that are no longer of use, and therefore we have British cites that all have at least 4/5 things to go and see in them

Yes the old development buildings are covered in scafolding and there is a big coming soon poster on the side with a picture of the Heritage gateway scheme tower on it (i hope they give it a name). Also there has been alot of work going on around the St davids 2 project area, looks like they are testing out the area for the start of work! Alot of shops have closed down as well in the oxford arcade, MVC has gone. There was also a picture in the local newspaer about the football stadium to be built for Cardiff City Football Club. It said its a 100 million pound development, plus the 352 million pound development for st davids 2, the sports village and casino, and the heritage tower and the water quarter development; there is alot of investment here!
