latest regeneration project at the small ceremony. Previously the location of the Mariner Street carpark site, the new tower stands at 62 metres tall making it central Swansea’s second tallest building and among the tallest in Wales. Included in the development is the GBP 39.8 million student accommodation. The striking 21-storey tower, with distinctive cladding, will house 244 students, with a further 531 accommodated within the surrounding six to eight storey brick-clad structures. It will provide home away from home facilities, including a cinema, study areas, private dining, library, games area, and a gymnasium.
The scheme also incorporates 20,000 square feet of retail space, alongside a comprehensive range of study, social and community amenities for residents as part of the city’s GBP 1 billion regeneration project.
