Love that last one with the library poking though, really bring sinto context what the architects said about it referencing the hisotry of the Jewellery Quarter. The colour and texture are perfect.

Great pictures. I really love the Jewellery Quarter and everything in it. Seems to get better all the time.

What an ignorant comment, I wouldn't feel sorry for anyone living in Jewellery quarter, by far the most lively part of Birmingham City Centre....

Oh yes! Density on this great street! This is currently the plant site for the Hampton Hotel. Pages 15-21 have some great elevations.

Movement spotted on Chord’s Caroline St. development.

Contractors have been hard at work here for well over a week and big flashy new banners have gone up with a website address http://www.sterlinghouse.co.



This is part refurb and part new build – looks quite good

Interesting that they mention on the website that Caroline St is a ‘son to be tree line boulevard’. Have heard this rumoured for a while – does anybody know anything about a timescale for this?
