Actually just done some very rudimentary maths based on comparing it to surrounding buildings and I retract my previous statement. There are still approx. 8 levels to go above the current height of the core + slipform gubbins and it’s maybe only a couple of floors short of the height of Altolusso which is 71 metres. The crane does still look short though.

By looking at the image above, it shows that Herbert Street student tower will be 86 metres! And theyre both being planned from the same company, so it should be very accurate! This makes Herbert Street 4 metres taller than the Charles Street tower, which is also under construction.


Yes but if you look at ground level of that diagram in DAS the height starts at I think it's 6.5metres at the base of the building - therefore the herbert st tower is looking likely to be pretty much 80metres give or take a couple of cms. Nevertheless 80metres is presently very tall for Cardiff.

The core is now roughly the same height as the Altolusso.

Level 19 is now visible beneath the formwork, allowing for about 2 levels behind the formwork there’s probably about 5 floors of actual height still to go. Crazy how quickly this one has gone up, although reckon Bridge St will still just win as that core is only a couple of levels away from completion.

Funny how quickly these things pop up. Usually what happens is the core seems to take not much time but then things like internal fitting, or the initial groundwork seem to take forever.

The core has shot up, but they seem a bit slow with everything else. Up to the third floor around the core and at the site front where the roadside 8 floor bit is going to be.

Once they finish the core I imagine the actual floors themselves will start to progress a bit faster.

The article is nonsense. The development in question missed the September opening, so people found elsewhere to live. They've only asked for a change of 'licence for 12 months. Then it'll be students again.

Yep, that article gave me blisters on my feet.

There's a housing crisis in Cardiff - 10,000 people waiting for affordable homes. Those HMO's in Canton need reducing (but not eliminating, I can understand if people dont want to live in towers). I'm all for development of higher density student blocks.
