Tallest residential tower in Wales completes

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Construction work has finally finished on Latitude Architects’ £42 million Meridian Quay development in Swansea Bay, featuring the tallest apartment scheme in Wales

The 107m-tall, 29-storey residential skyscraper – with a top-floor restaurant – is the centrepiece of a seven-block, seafront scheme for developer Earthquake, which was first submitted for planning in March 2004.

Only the 120m-tall BT Tower in Cardiff is higher, with a 40m-tall stainless steel mast sitting atop an 80m-high 1976 building.

According to reports, the development of 291 apartments together with 2,000m² of offices and shops was temporarily halted in April 2009 when contractor Carillion walked off the site following a dispute with the developer.
