7-8 storey office building. Interesting, but we expect bigger things from this site.

So, from the section at the end, 'Masterplan Revision', office D sounds the tallest Ground + 20 full office levels, 21,945 sqm; Residential E2 the largest at 24,095sqm. For D, it says: max height + 220.8 but I don't know how to interpret that; could somebody explain?

seems we're also in for some 20 storey 60m residential blocks here too.... they are really going for some density... similar height to the library building

also with a 20 storey 80m office building, though with plant id expect that to rise a little... the average floor to floor height for A grade offices is 4.5m... so 20 x 4.5m is circa 90m.... similar height to orion and the sentinals...

Good to see movement on this. With quality materials this should look quite respectable. I'd be interested to see a view from Centenary Way to see how the block impacts the view of the Hyatt & ICC.

Also, with Arena Central Sq surrounded by 20 storey buildings, there'll be little opportunity to sit outside in the sun...?

Let's hope they get a spade in the ground this time.

Brilliant images and you can tell they have spent a fair amount of work on this.

Excellent! Exciting times for AC, please come to fruition!

So when will the House of Sport get demolished then?







It was first built in 1951.

The only thing I'm worried about are old tv studios behind. Will businesses really want that next door? Or maybe it will all get demolished before it's complete.

Planning permission is already in place for the delivery of a brand new, 200-bedroom Holiday Inn Express hotel, to be developed by Centre Island Ltd, owners of the adjacent Crown Plaza Hotel.

Site clearance is already underway, with a redundant multi-storey car park on the corner of Holliday Street and Bridge Street having been demolished to make way for the hotel, construction on which is due to start imminently, ready for occupancy in 2016

Well looking at the pictures below, looks like the TV studios and everything else will be demolished before 1 Arena Central even starts. Also, Holiday Inn should be built before the Studios are demolished

The public realm will be in pace i would have thought before this building is finished. Not seen an app for the landscaping through so this detail would probably be include in the app for this building. We might see the two being done at the same time.

Ok took this one for the limo (think BCU had a graduation day at Symphony Hall), but you can see the site behind it (to the left of the Hyatt Hotel)

That would be two years away RO, I'm pretty sure the whole site clearance was earmarked for autumn this year?
