"Hows the buses going to get up to the top floor?"

I laughed at that one.

Yep, the core of the tower has been at full height for some time.

Cheers, being the tallest in Cardiff I though it would have been at least 26 floors.

The height of the core seems a little underwhelming to me. I wonder if the superstructure of the slanted roof will add a decent amount of height potentially.

Looking at the latest pictures, it probably is just as tall as anything else we have, but the fact the tower is just one part of a very large structure means its visual impact isn’t as striking as it would be if it was standing on its own, like the two recent student accom towers.

Once it’s finished it’ll probably look a lot taller. All we’re seeing right now is a concrete shaft surrounded by other slightly shorter concrete shafts!

Interesting find https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/cardiff-trams-trolley-buses-history-20296997

I wonder if they will remove that tram line?

I walked past this the other day and photos really don't do it justice. The actual bus station bit is huge in itself and is taller than the BBC Wales HQ.
