83-92 Bromsgrove Street
City Center

Height: N/A | Floors: 8 | Client/Architects: Southside Central Ltd / Glenn Howells

Links: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1825106
  • The development proposes a new commercial unit at ground level on
    Bromsgrove Street with seven levels of residential accommodation above,
    providing 1 bedroom studios (133 in total) and 1 bedroom apartments (7
    in total).

    The adjoining site, a BT telephone exchange, is also owned by the
    applicant but is subject to a 15 year lease by BT. Re-development of this
    site is therefore intended for some time in the future.

    Bromsgrove Street is rapidly becoming a community in itself with recent
    residential developments such as Southside and i-Land (both by Crosby
    Homes), Latitude providing a catalyst for further regeneration. There are
    also detailed proposals for Unity House, the Armories and the Arcadian
    Centre, which in time will further reinforce the areas residential appeal.


  • Current status: Proposed / Decision Due Nov 15

2 Cornwall Street
City Center - Central Business District

Height: N/A | Floors: 9 | Client/Architects: Burntwood / Glenn Howells

Links: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...482781&page=10
  • Above the reception there are nine floors of office space with floorplates designed to offer maximum flexibility to customers enabling them to make the most efficient use of space possible. All office spaces benefit from full height glazing and a 2.6m floor to ceiling height giving an airy and light feel to the space.

    The award-winning Glenn Howells Architects has designed a building with the customer at the fore, paying particular attention to how the building is used away from the main office space. To the ground floor there is a facility for cyclists including secure parking, drying room and showers; the top floor of the building is home to Birmingham's largest private roof terrace giving views across the city centre and beyond.

    When complete in Autumn 2016, Two Cornwall Street will bring 110,000 sq ft of much needed Grade A workspace to Birmingham.

  • Current status: Under Construction

Is that render how this will all look when it`s finished? I had no idea all the extra shops were going to be built.

Will there be room for the residential tower that Birmingham has posted about?

Where you see hotel in that sign, is where the development stops currently. The rest, circa 250K sqft of conference and leisure space isn't being built now. It will be used further down the line for other development.

And the render is out of date.

Birmingham crowned Europe’s ‘most competitive for investment’
Birmingham has been crowned the most competitive city for investment in Western Europe, according to new research.


Links: http://www.bqlive.co.uk/2015/11/11/b...r-investment/?
  • Birmingham is listed in the top five of eight industry sectors:

    Aerospace (1st);
    Automotive (2nd);
    Business & Financial Services (4th);
    Electronics (3rd);
    Food & Beverage (1st);
    Machinery, Equipment & Construction (1st);
    Metals (1st);
    Transportation & Logistics (2nd).

    Dublin and Barcelona also feature on eight occasions but with lower rankings, while London appears seven times and both Manchester and Liverpool once.

  • Birmingham is listed in the top five of eight industry sectors:


    The Midlands is home to over one quarter of the UK aerospace industry, 7% per cent of Europe's and 3% of the world's, with over 45,000 full-time-equivalent jobs due wholly to revenues from manufacturing for global aerospace markets -- without counting the region's airports and military bases.

    Airbus A380

    Midlands contributions to the latest Airbus A380 super-jumbo and Boeing 787 aircraft show how robust the cluster's economy has become – winning business whether Airbus or Boeing are in the global aircraft sales lead. More than 70 Midlands companies supply the A380, even versions powered by GE rather than Rolls-Royce engines -- which have many more Midlands suppliers.

  • Birmingham is listed in the top five of eight industry sectors:


    The West Midlands is the main location for the UK industry, accounting for just under 30% of total UK car production.

    West Midlands auto cluster comprises 1,500 companies and employs
    115,000 people

    Jaguar Land Rover

    Midland manufacturing giant Jaguar Land Rover has clocked up another motoring milestone – with mammoth profits of more than £2.6 billion in 2015.

    Over the past five years, Jaguar Land Rover has doubled sales and employment, more than tripled turnover, and invested more than £10 billion in new product creation and capital expenditure.

    High points for 2014/15 included the unveiling of three Jaguars, the all-new XE and F-PACE and the new XF, plus the start of sales of the all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport.

    Last October The Queen formally opened Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre at Wolverhampton, a £500 million complex which will employ 1,400 workers.

    In the same month, the company opened its first ever overseas manufacturing facility in Changshu, China.

    Construction of its second overseas plant, in Brazil, started in December.

    And in March JLR confirmed £600 million of investment in the West Midlands, including £400 million at Castle Bromwich in support of the introduction of the all new Jaguar XF.

Radical plan to split Birmingham City Council apart


Links: http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/news...medium=twitter
  • A radical new plan to end decades of failure at Birmingham City Council by breaking it up and creating ten district councils has been unveiled.

    Areas such as Edgbaston, Hall Green or Erdington would have their own local authorities collecting council tax and providing key services, under plans set out by Sutton Coldfield MP Andrew Mitchell.

    Under Mr Mitchell’s proposals, ten borough or district councils would each have 12 councillors. They would take responsibility for planning, environmental services, setting council tax and more.

    A stripped down city council would still exist, but it would have no more than 40 councillors – compared to 120 today – and its role would be strictly limited to a few services such as waste collection.

    Birmingham is nearing the end of a lengthy attempt to force through improvements which began when the Government commissioned an inquiry by former senior civil servant Lord Kerslake.

    Ministers were concerned about the city’s failing children’s services, Birmingham’s massive financial liabilities and the Trojan Horse affair, when there were claims that religious hardliners had attempted to take over some city schools.

Trams are set to return to the streets of Birmingham city centre for the first time since 1953


Links: http://www.expressandstar.com/news/2...for-christmas/
  • Trams will return to the streets of Birmingham for the first time in more than 60 years next month as part of the multi-million city centre line extension.

    The £128m tram extension, which includes a £40m fleet of new trams, is expected to create more than 1,300 sustainable new jobs and boost the regional economy by more than £50m a year.

    Work has already begun on extending the route from New Street Station to Centenary Square with services expected to start running in 2019.

    Outline funding approval is also earmarked to extend the route still further along Broad Street, past Five Ways and on to Edgbaston by 2021.

Strange isn't it I think the stigma from the 60's and 70's hasn't quite left in it's entirety but it's certainly changing.

I will do a post showcasing the city soon.
