As part of an aggressive regeneration of the city centre of Wales’ Capital City, this mixed-use development combines retail, leisure, entertainment, office, and residential into a vibrant new centrepiece in the heart of Cardiff. Five new civic squares mark the corner gateways to this 1.2 million square foot extension to Land Securities & Capital Shopping Centre’s St. David’s Centre.
As a new cafÉ society spine, The Hayes will become the dining and entertainment destination for Wales and host the finest retail brands in the country. Intimate two-level arcades will continue the legacy of intricate passages in the downtown, and a new National Portrait Gallery will fill the main arcade with sculptures of Welsh men and women who have excelled in the arts, sciences, literature, and commerce.
