Project vision

The project is being developed by commercial property specialists Rightacres.

Rightacres' vision is that a revamped Central Square will reflect Cardiff’s ambition to be amongst Europe’s most successful cities. It will build on its success and become a place defined by excellence in design, in quality and in diversity of offer. It will be a place that inspires and excites.
