Please enjoy this incredible new drone footage taken part-way though the construction process.
It offers a spectacular bird’s-eye view of progress on the £135m Copr Bay Phase One scheme.
You can see work nearing completion on the project’s giant steel frames.
The 3,500-capacity arena is going up next to the LC, on the site of the former Oystermouth Road car park, along with its adjoining two levels of parking with parkland to come on top.
Over the other side of the main road – between Tesco and Iceland – is the steel frame of a larger multi-storey car park and the concrete core of a block that will become homes and commercial units.
The two sides will be connected by a landmark broad footbridge.
