55 COLMORE ROW

Construction and development group Morgan Sindall have been appointed to carry out the £30m renovation of 55 Colmore Row in Birmingham city centre, which will provide 160,000 sq. ft. of grade A office space:-

Morgan Sindall to lead 55 Colmore Row revamp

Listed construction and development group Morgan Sindall has been appointed to the £30 million renovation of one of the city's best-known business addresses.

55 Colmore Row, formerly the home of law firm Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co before it moved to Two Snowhill, is undergoing a major refurbishment.

Morgan Sindall, whose construction arm is headquartered in Rugby, has been appointed as main contractor on the project which will deliver 160,000 sq ft of grade A office space.

Three brand new floors will be added to the top of the building, with all internal layouts fully reconfigured to create open plan office space from 18,000 to 24,000 sq ft.

Its Grade II-listed, 19th century banking hall will be transformed into a new reception while its rear side fronting onto Barwick Street will be removed and replaced with a full-height glazed façade, with space for two restaurants at street level.

John Hammond, investment director at IM Properties which owns 55 Colmore Row, said: "This is a project that will breathe new life into one of the most prominent and widely recognised commercial buildings in Birmingham.

"55 Colmore Row is a cornerstone in Birmingham's commercial history and this project requires construction and project management teams of significant confidence and capability.

"We feel absolutely certain that Morgan Sindall will deliver the high-quality rejuvenation of this landmark building."

Dave Smith, managing director of construction at Morgan Sindall, added: "Anyone who has worked in or around Birmingham will be aware of 55 Colmore Row.

"They may be less familiar, however, with the volume of work that will need to be undertaken to give the building a new lease of life.

"The complexity of adding new floors to the top of the building, combined with the time-scale in which we are working means that there is significant planning required to ensure we deliver.

"It is a fantastic and high-profile project to be involved with and I am confident that we will deliver to exactly the standard that IM Properties is seeking for 55 Colmore Row."

Other firms working on project include AHR Architects, DBK as quantity surveyor and Projex Building Solutions as project manager and employers agent.

The programme of works is due to be completed in autumn 2016.

THE MAILBOX

The upmarket mixed use complex The Mailbox in Birmingham city centre has undergone a £50m revamp, and is due to re-open fully in October. Recently it announced it had signed up Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Clements & Church:-

New-look Mailbox signs up Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Clements & Church

Fashion brands on board ahead of unveiling of the new-look Mailbox following a £50 million redevelopment

Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Clements & Church have become the latest high-end brands to sign up to the new-look Mailbox ahead of its October reopening.

Luxury fashion brands Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein Underwear will be moving into the redeveloped retail space, alongside the independent British tailor, Clements & Church.

The Calvin Klein store will be the brand’s first standalone UK presence outside London and Manchester.

Clements & Church, which already has a shop in Birmingham’s business district, will be opening the doors to its second Birmingham store, offering contemporary ready-to-wear, made-to-measure and bespoke gentlemen’s attire.

The three will be joining Harvey Nichols, which opened in its new 45,000 sq ft site in July.

Other shops that will be returning to the Mailbox following its makeover include Hugo Boss, Emporio Armani, LK Bennett, Jaeger and Gieves and Hawkes.

Castle Fine Art will also be opening a new gallery inside.

The Mailbox has announced that its transformed retail mall and skylit “urban room” will now be unveiled in October 2015.

Melanie Taylor, head of leasing at Milligan, development partner and joint owner of the Mailbox, said: “We’re confident that the transformation will be worth the wait!

“There is a huge amount of anticipation about the unveiling of our retail space, especially now that Harvey Nichols Birmingham has opened and set the bar for luxury fashion.

“We’re delighted to announce Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Clements & Church as the latest additions to our exciting mix.

“The basket of premium brands which we’re curating for the Mailbox is national, international and local, and will bring a whole new tier of retailing to Birmingham.”

The shopping and entertainment complex has already welcomed a three-screen Everyman Cinema earlier this year, in addition to urban neighbourhood kitchen, Gas Street Social.
