The tower has 29 storeys, double the number of the previous tallest building in Swansea, the BT Tower. Most of the tower houses residential apartments. The ground floor features a concierge desk which is manned 24 hours a day, whilst the top three floors consist of the Grape and Olive restaurant run by the Cardiff brewery S.A. Brain & Co. Ltd. This was opened following the unsuccessful 290 cover Pentouse restaurant. Press reports stated that the penthouse apartment on the 26th floor was sold for £1 million. On 26 January 2008, one of the construction workers died after falling three storeys from the tower. The construction company, Carillion, chose not to release his name. The tower "topped-out" to its full height on 12 September 2008.
