I have noticed today that the old Habitat unit is under offer any idea whos taking it on?
Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar have been looking at Cardiff but don't know if it's them. Think the closure of La Fosse may be connected with the letting though.
Walked past the old Habitat unit today and there is an alcohol licence application for Miller & Carter. It's not clear if it's for the whole building or just part. I thought it would have made more sense to take over La Fosse but it doesn't seem as though this is the case. Does anyone know anything else on this??
Its subject to an application for conversion to 2 or 3 catering units - there is apparently a lot of demand here, but virtually zero on the retail side. What retailer demand there is in Cardiff is being hoovered up by the remaining SD units and churn on Queen St, where space is often laid out in ways better suited to retailers.
It'll be nice to have a more active frontage here anyway to create more of a civic square atmosphere. There's plenty of space for outside seating areas, particularly along Hills Street
Walked passed today, there is license request on the door from Miller & Carter.
You need to go on a intensive Google course!
Copy "Miller & Carter" put it in to Google* and hey presto!
Steak Resrurant chain, they have one in Cardiff bay, near Future Inns (hotel)
*other search engines are available.
Is this the full unit? Or do we suspect it will be split up as part of this? It seems a big unit (with the upstairs as well) for just one steak house.
Am I missing something here? This was posted a month ago (thought Frank's comment was sarcasm)
I'd steak my reputation on it being a wind up ....... coat!
Glad to see Miller and Carter appear in the city centre,
Steak houses in town are pretty rare
If it's successful it could become quite the meating place.
No one's made that pun yet have they?
The indications are that the developers want to start work on converting the Habitat building into separate restaurant units in early January. We know that Miller and Carter have made an application for one of the units. I suspect that given the magnitude of the likely rents that the other units will only attract national operators, would be nice to see Raymond Blanc resurrect an interest in opening up in Cardiff.
