Construction work expected to begin on Wales’ tallest building
The £60 million Bayscape scheme is going ahead in Cardiff Bay and will see a 32-storey, 120-room hotel built in the area.
Ardmore, who have previously worked on several hotels and high-rise buildings, are leading the project. Construction work is expected to begin later this year and is expected to be completed in 2013.
The Bayscape project has been hit by months of delays and is six months behind schedule. The new hotel is part of a larger £1 billion regeneration scheme in Cardiff Bay, which involves the building of Cardiff International Sports Village.
Chris Odling-Smee, the Swiss businessman behind the Bayscape project, addressed the delays by saying:
“It’s a large scheme, which is why we have been taking this quite carefully. We have taken our time so that when we do fire the starter’s gun we can deliver on every aspect of it.”
This project, and the larger regeneration scheme in Cardiff Bay, will likely create new jobs in the construction industry for plumbing and electrical contractors, that live in or around Cardiff.
