10 Gough Street
City Center

Height: N/A | Floors: 11| Client/Architects: Romiga / D5 Architects

Links: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1792529&page=2

  • London-based investor and developer Romiga has applied to knock down the old Birmingham United Services Club building and replace it with 43 one-bedroom and 30 two-bedroom units.

    The site was most recently used as Eddie's rock club which relocated there after a fire destroyed its former premises in John Bright Street in 2006 but last year the venue closed so it moved across town to Tunnel Club in the Jewellery Quarter.

    The site, at 10 Gough Street, is poised to be brought back to life in a project designed by Birmingham-based architecture practice D5.

    In addition to the new flats, which would rise up to 11 storeys, there would be landscaped public realm and parking for 18 cars and 75 bikes.

  • Global construction and support services firm Interserve is set to consolidate all its Midland operations on one site after obtaining planning permission to build a new regional headquarters in Solihull close to Birmingham Airport.

3 Snow Hill
City Center

Height: 85m | Floors: 17| Client/Architects: Ballymore / Sidell Gibson

Links: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...481039&page=28

  • The Snowhill 3 building, designed by Sidell Gibson Architect, will be the third and final phase of Ballymore's 90,000m2 Snowhill development, next to the city's Snow Hill railway station.

    New designs will replace the outline planning consent that was granted in 2013 for a slightly smaller office building. Both plans, in turn, replace proposals for a 43-storey residential tower and adjacent 23-storey hotel, whose construction started but was halted in 2010.

    A 17-storey contemporary office building is now envisaged, providing 34,000m2 of B1 office space and 1,430m2 of leisure and conference facilities. It will reuse part of the aborted residential and hotel scheme, including three levels of basement car parking and the ground floor conference area. Structural cores for the earlier project had been built to fourth floor level but have now been demolished. The steel frame of the new building will punch through into new foundations, enabling existing structures to be reused.



  • Current status: U/C - Completion Q3 2017

Such fantastic updates, I'm speechless! If this comment moves us to the next page then go back a page and look! Birmingham is not exactly a city I have a very nice opinion of if I'm honest but that seems very much set to change if all this happens.

It does have a huge amount of investment currently on going and planned. The city is moving up the gears so to speak after being one of the slowest out of the recession.

Infrastructure wise, the city has really been concentrating on improving connectivity while also paying huge attention to the public spaces to improve the streetscape.

Plot F, Arena Central
City Center

Height: 61m | Floors: 18 | Client/Architects: ACD / Holiday Express

Links: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...494504&page=55

  • The 210 Bedroom Holiday Inn Express and Leisure Club in Birmingham City Centre occupies a highly prominent, and technically challenging, site on the southern boundary of Arena Central.

    The form of the hotel is driven by a myriad of site constraints not least of which the complex sub-structure existing New Street Railway Tunnel, which passes under its south east corner, and the challenging sequence of surrounding site levels and access points.

    The visual appearance of the development is composed of elements derived from local and distant contextual features whilst at the same time hinting at the Site’s historic connection with the famous ATV studios and television presentation through the application of a light weight ‘pixelated’ façade.
