    It probably does.

    Cities thrive on high density highly connected places

    I think they could have done better here though and will be a shame

    Worked there in one of those buildings from 1963-1965, J.K. White Motor Factors. Memories of my youth.

    Why are developers allowed to rip the heart of city centres and replace them with these soulless and mostly inappropriate buildings? One of Cardiff’s charms was the mix of housing/ retail stock but that is slowly being eroded.
    I accept that change is natural as a city expands but just look at the monstrosities that have been put up in recent years.

    cash, the developer might build 20 social houses and a community centre somewhere as a trade-off

    What's the point of a city with nothing in it? Developers are hell bent on ripping any kind of originality out of the city to be replaced by soulless identikit blocks, Cardiff Council won't be happy until Cardiff is one long string of apartment blocks and chain restaurants
