It's certainly an unusual brick colour; although, delving into my photo archive, there are these three buildings in B'ham as well:-

The Bloc was due to expand with some serviced apartments; various articles in the media about this last year. No obvious sign of anything happening at the moment though.

Why is it that the birmingham city elders seem so adverse to build anything tall. I would have thought that out of all cities it would have aspired to something more charismatic on its skyline. This latest rather dumpy proposition is going to loom over all the quality public buildings and spaces like a big black cloud.

I like the old brutalist tower that was there before. Way more character.

LEFT BANK, BROAD ST

With planning consent given, work is set to start later this year on the Left Bank project on Broad St in central Birmingham. This is due to be an 18 storey, 180 bed, Innside hotel and a 22 storey residential tower with 189 apartments.

Quote:
The Left Bank development, located in a prominent city centre setting, was granted planning approval by Birmingham City Council Planning Committee on Thursday 28th May 2015.

The scheme consists of an 18 storey hotel building with retail and residential facilities on the ground floor and a 22 storey residential building of 189 apartments together with retail and restaurant facilities on the ground floor.

Glancy Nicholls Architects were appointed by Regal Property Group to produce the design for this scheme. The design responds to the constraints and complexities of the site, seeking to promote a contemporary architectural style similar to that executed on the nearby Brindleyplace.

THREE SNOWHILL

Planning permission has been given for Three Snowhill, which will be a 16 storey, 360,000 sq. ft. office development in the Snowhill area of Birmingham city centre:-

Quote:
Three Snowhill development gets green light in Birmingham office boost
13:10, 28 MAY 2015

Proposals for the much-needed Three Snowhill office development have been given the go-ahead by councillors.

Developer Ballymore wants to complete a triumvirate on the Snowhill estate with a 400,000 sq ft building over 16 storeys.

The scheme, which had been dogged by the recession, forms a key part of the Snow Hill Masterplan opening out onto the Jewellery Quarter and St Chad's Cathedral.

The Post understands several global firms have expressed early interest in taking space on the scheme and the business community is keen to see work start with a shortage of office space in the city.

Proposals were passed for a scheme which will offer 360,000 sq ft of Grade A offices over 16 storeys, complemented with 40,000 sq ft of leisure and retail space, and parking spaces over four floors – subject to a section 106 order.

I'm really worried about the quality of most buildings going up in Birmingham. Once buildings move from render to reality the quality falls substantially. The council need to do more to maintain quality between pre-application design discussion and construction - it's a problem across the country - developers seducing the council and public with attractive visuals, and then building something a lot worse - but Birmingham is clearly not coping with this challenge.
