Centenary Square redesign winner revealed


http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/busi...vealed-9472364

A controversial winner no doubt. I like the layout but i hate the spires and they need to put more thought into the paving. it uses a White Fasonado XL paving slab which i feel will either work or completely fall flat and look cheap.

I cant make up my mind whether I like it or not, on one hand I'm a big fan of trees and the water feature is a good move in my eyes. However something's missing, there are way to many spires for a start and I hate the idea of keeping the existing paving as some sort of border. This like the square in the JQ are both let downs overall. Why do we not take inspiration from Brindley Place and Eastside Park our two most successful outdoor spaces in the city centre? Worst thing is this will be the most prominent outdoor space for the city. I suppose only time will tell, another building site in the meantime

EASTSIDE LOCKS

The Eastside Locks office development in Cardigan St, Eastside, is currently in the early stages of construction and has now been let in full to Birmingham City University:-

Quote:
Birmingham City University secures new base at Eastside Locks

The regeneration of the city's Eastside district has taken a further step forward after a giant office letting to Birmingham City University was secured.

Property group Goodman has secured a deal for its 55,000 sq ft, four-storey Eastside Locks office scheme.

The deal is part of the continued expansion of BCU's city centre campus which has seen it develop neighbouring buildings like Parkside.

Goodman commenced construction of the Cardigan Street office on a speculative basis in November 2014, anticipating early interest given Birmingham's growing profile as an investment and business location and being adjacent to the planned HS2 Curzon Street station.

James Raven, development director of UK business parks at Goodman, said: "Our belief in the city's growth underpinned the decision to begin work on the Cardigan Street scheme as a speculative development last year.

"Birmingham is attracting record levels of inward investment, has more start ups than anywhere outside of the capital and tops the UK's quality of living rankings for regional cities.

"With HS2 also moving forward, demand for developments in the city is set to rise and we are investing now to ensure Eastside can offer the high quality accommodation needed by tomorrow's businesses.

"For Goodman, securing this lease with Birmingham City University during the early stages of construction will enable us to commit to the next phase of speculative office development and implement plans for the first amenity hub at Eastside Locks. We look forward to announcing more details in the near future."

I was thinking of starting a thread in the General Urban Developments sub forum for the paradise site. But I think i may wait a few months for the first building to start construction.

Anyway 1 Chamberlain square is giving me New Formalism vibes. Should feel pretty grand with the colonnades and steps. But i'll miss the old library and be happy if it'd be rebuilt somewhere else.

John Lewis and New Street opening dates announced
http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/busi...pening-9582460

Quote:
The shopping complex and John Lewis will open on September 24 and are expected to attract 50 million visitors a year and will employ about 1,000 people.

Grand Central development director Richard Brown said: "After years of hard work and collaboration with Birmingham City Council and other key partners, it's a pleasure to be able to announce the official opening date of Grand Central which has been eagerly awaited by people far and wide.

"We are making great progress with the development as we are entering into the final stages before nearing completion.

"There is still a lot to do but we are right on schedule with a real buzz on site as we are seeing the centre being brought to life."

New Street and Grand Central are among a series of major developments and £1 billion worth of investment coming through in the city centre this year which will deliver an estimated 30,000 jobs and economic growth.

There will be more than 60 shops and restaurants at the £150 million Grand Central, including the giant John Lewis store.

It's amazing how huge the station is. I never could have imagined beforehand that you could turn such a cramped space into that picture above.
