A High-quality Space
This new attraction will give residents, families, city centre workers and visitors to Swansea a high-quality space to relax, meet friends, enjoy the views or get a meal or a drink before an event at Swansea Arena.
Rob Stewart, Leader of Swansea Council, commented:
“The completion of Swansea Arena as well as many other features of Copr Bay phase one means our city is well on track to becoming Britain’s best and most dynamic place to visit, live in and do business. Not only will Copr Bay generate millions of pounds for the Swansea economy, but it has also already created thousands of new jobs, both directly and indirectly.”
“Copr Bay phase one will serve as a springboard for a brighter, more prosperous future for our city, one which unleashes the full potential of public-private partnerships and shaping a better Swansea for all.”
