Yeah true. Looks like the dreadful “PRS” section has been changed for the better though!

Saw the full plans on Friday - the residents of this forum will be happy with the height gain along Wood Street. 8-)

I’m still lurking! Haven’t seen any elevations yet but this should be a little bit higher than the current crop of towers going up (with the exception of The Watkin Jones scheme on Custom House Street which is definitely a one off for now).

What do you expect mean by a one off?

Wow, this is set to be around 90m then?

I really like the name of the development. "Metro Central" will make the whole metro scheme seem a lot more serious.

If this, along with the joining of Cardiff Central and 'Metro Central', and the building looking as high quality as the renders, I will be hugely impressed.

The rumors of a tower on the PRS section will be an added extra if that is also pulled off.

I'm mystified by the love of height of developments on this forum. Surely height does not necessarily equate to good quality architecture? Although I do notice a rather obscure penchant for tower cranes. :lol:
