What tower would that be? The 134m one? I would have thought that tower would start before then.

There is a excel document on the planning app somewhere, I'm positive the actual core won't start being built until April. I could be wrong, it's mentioned in the other thread. Most likely 20 pages behind the Cardiff V Bristol argument.

The 'nice old building' you are talking about, at least the attractive part of it, is staying.

Looks like the tear down is about to begin, machinery behind the building this morning ready to start demolition!

I popped down today for a look and was struck by how confined the site is. Given that the Custom House is being retained - the new tower is going to look incredibly narrow when viewed from either side - a veritable skinnyscraper!

I've never been as critical of the design as some people on here and the more I try to visualise it, the more it grows on me.

Meanwhile Vale, The York Hotel - home of Cardiff's very first gay bar back in the seventies. IIRC, the back bar of the York and the Showbiz Club around the corner on Custon House Street were where the Cardiff gay scene began.
