I missed the article about the Cornmarket St/Coal Quay redevelopment, does anyone have a scan of that by any chance? I couldn't find anything online.
I'm not surprised the Cornmarket St centre isn't filling, after years of 'famine' there's a glut of retail space becoming available now, and the centre is on the edge of the city centre with relatively little foot traffic going by (the Cornmarket St. end). The Opera Lane development is much better located.
Can't help you with the others, the Capitol cinema site is becoming ever-more of an eye-sore, so hopefully something is done with it soon. IIRC, it was to be another retail development, in which case the demand may well have dried up with the other development coming online.
As for the Anderson's Quay development, that's one I'm hoping will never see the light of day, it's a horrible proposal. From the bus-station side it would look ok, but from down-river it presents a horrible 7-storey blank wall.
