Investigative works have begun on a £50 million project in Swansea that will include 780 student bed spaces.
Site investigation works have commenced on the development that will help regenerate the High Street area of Swansea city centre. The 17-storey scheme sits opposite the railway station and will include student accommodation, along with shops and businesses on the ground floor.
Developer RDE Silex are behind the scheme and have partnered with Fusion Students.
The building will consist of cluster flats and self-contained studio rooms and will become Swansea's second tallest building and one of the tallest in Wales.
Once construction work starts early next year, the existing Mariner Street car park will be permanently closed.
Commenting on the scheme, Andrew Robinson, of RDE Silex, said: "We are excited to be working with Fusion and Swansea Council to develop this high-quality scheme."
"The scheme will offer students a vibrant mix of purpose-built accommodation and a strong retail offering. There will be excellent access to High Street, the city's university campuses and transport links. Furthermore, local businesses should get a real boost from the increased footfall and opportunity."
