The development of St David’s built upon well-loved regions in Cardiff including the original St David's Shopping Centre and The Hayes. Its aim was to transform the Southern end of the city centre and breathe life into a previously underused area, establishing Cardiff as the home of fashion in Wales.
Looking to the future, St David’s will play its part in helping Cardiff to become a leading European retail destination. It has created attractive public spaces for people to enjoy, alongside unique and exciting stores and cafes which cater to the needs of the 21st century shopper.
In addition to the new shopping centre take a look at how St David’s has helped to elevate Cardiff into a world-class shopping destination; over 300 apartments, a significant investment in the public realm and public art, and an iconic new library building, this development brings a new cosmopolitan look and feel to the city.
