The Tower, Meridian Quay is the tallest building in Wales standing at 107m. The tower has 29 storeys, double the number of the previous tallest building in Swansea, the BT Tower.

The focus of the proposal is a 29 storey residential tower incorporating a top floor restaurant with panoramic views across Swansea Bay.

A combination of 4 smaller white towers set against a backdrop of lower red brick and timber clad blocks form 2 new public squares, private gardens and routes through from the dock to the sea front.

Planning consent was granted in December 2004, construction commenced in October 2006, and was completed in March 2010.
