The Canal Quarter area represents around a quarter of the Cardiff city centre and has the potential to develop into a new destination, characterised by the opening of the city’s historic waterways, as the old canal areas are revealed.

The development framework sets out an ambition for the delivery of a high-density mixed-use development providing new homes, offices and retail spaces set within a network of pedestrian orientated environments and establishing a vibrant place to live, work and visit.

The regeneration project seeks to attract both large-scale corporate investments and smaller-scale independent developments that encourage vibrancy and authenticity through new cultural venues including space for performance and music, both indoors and outdoors.

Canal Quarter includes significant new public square providing additional high quality public space within the city centre.

The square will be designed to maximise the potential of green infrastructure and will be capable of accommodating a variety of events within the city centre.

The site is central to the cities railway infrastructure, being adjacent to Queen Street railway station and 5 minute walk from Cardiff Central.

The regeneration project is at Phase 1 including the opening of the Canal waterway on Churchill Way.

Cardiff Council is continues to work closely with private sector partners to deliver a new vibrant district for the city.
