Cardiff centre marks decade since opening of ‘St David’s 2’
St David’s, Cardiff, owned and managed by The St David’s Partnership, a joint venture between intu and Landsec, has marked ten years since the opening of ‘St David’s 2’ on 22nd October 2009.
The destination celebrated for ten days, across two full weekends from Friday 18th to Sunday 27th October, with prize giveaways, a giant cake and balloons, and a gallery of site images that took visitors through the history of the land that is now St David’s 2.
Speaking on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, Kate Grant, intu’s regional managing director, said: “Our goal for St David’s 2 was to build upon the foundations of a fast-growing and vibrant city, creating a destination that strives to offer the very best in fashion, dining, and entertainment for Cardiff’s residents and visitors. This tenth birthday is a key milestone for us, and a chance to look back at how much St David’s and the city have flourished.
“St David’s sits at the heart of a city and region that is well-connected; less than two hours from London by train and benefitting from a £1bn investment into rail infrastructure that will bring more than half of the total population of Wales within an hour of the city centre. St David’s will play a key role looking ahead to the next ten years, as people who live, visit, or work in Cardiff continue to seek a full and varied offer of shops, restaurants, and leisure.”
