St David's 2, Cardiff, Wales

This landmark scheme set in the heart of the Welsh capital provides over 967,500 sq ft of development with an investment of £675 million.

The public realm for St David’s 2 reinforces Cardiff as a European capital with a matrix of squares, arcades and streets providing a strong setting for new retail development whilst integrating existing cultural assets within the conservation area.

The Hayes, Hayes Island and Hayes Place linking the civic heart with the café quarter are jewels in the crown, where crafted paving materials harmoniously reflect the vernacular and flexible spaces provide opportunities for street activities including markets, seasonal festivals and theatre.
