The former Rumpoles pub on the junction of Moira Terrace and Fitazlan Place has been granted planning permission for the demolition and subsequent erection of a five storey building comprising of twenty-two flats with commercial to the ground floor. This is following the granting of a development for 540 student units on the existing fire station site.
With such a massive facelift to what is evolving into the new entrance into Cardiff City Centre with St David's 2 and the Atrium building this development will create an iconic building on this busy junction.

In the planning report the officers report: “The proposals are a significant improvement on the existing development. They provide an appropriate mix of uses within a building that responds well to its context and enhances the prominent corner site.”
