Eastside Locks Masterplan
Eastside

Height: Various | Floors: Various | Client/Architects: Goodman

Links: Official Website
  • Eastside Locks. Outline planning consent has been approved to create 650,000 sq ft of prime, Grade A office space in a thriving, mixed-use development unlike any other in the city. Eventually rising to 800,000 sq ft, the meticulously-considered masterplan will see the delivery of an urban development that's truly distinct from other higher density schemes in every conceivable way. Benefiting from being both water side and park side (and with a strong emphasis on vibrant public spaces) Eastside Locks will offer a cost-effective alternative to Birmingham's traditional central business district

  • Current status: Under Construction

BRUM 6TH IN EUROPE 2ND YEAR IN ROW
Birmingham named best city in the UK to invest money


Links: http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/busi...ty-uk-10725524
  • Birmingham has been named the most investable city in the UK for a second year running.

    The city was named above the likes of Milan, London and Paris in an annual survey of European investors’ intentions, which named it the sixth best place to invest money on the continent.

    The respected survey, by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and adviser PwC, represents a major boost to the city’s prospects, on the back of major schemes like HS2 and the Curzon Street regeneration.

    The report, which is a useful guide to where experts think the market might be heading, collated interviews with more than 500 developers, investors and property managers across Europe.

2 Arena Central
City Centre

Height: 62m | Floors: 12 | Client/Architects: HSBC / Make Architects

Links: http://arena-central.com/
  • In 2015, global bank HSBC announced that it would forward-purchase the full building as the head office of its UK ring-fenced bank serving personal and business customers.

    Occupying a prominent position overlooking Broad Street and Centenary Square and the new Arena Central public realm, the target BREEAM Excellent and LEED Gold office space will offer efficient floorplates of up to 21,903 sq ft over ground and ten upper floors.

    2 Arena Central has been designed as three interlocking ‘blocks’ and features two offset balconies, providing outstanding views across the site’s new public realm and extensive landscaping, and also Centenary Square.

    The building’s distinctive woven cladding pattern creates a distinctive façade with the overlapping masonry ‘ribbons’ colour-matched to the Portland Stone of the adjacent buildings.

    With planning consent in place, the building is due for completion in 2017, with HSBC to take occupancy in 2018.


  • Current status: Approved / Under Construction

Plot F, Arena Central
City Centre

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 including the complex sub-structure of the 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.

GRAND CENTRAL SOLD
Four month old Grand Central Birmingham sold for £335m


Links: http://www.thebusinessdesk.com/westm..._section=19011
  • THE Grand Central shopping centre in Birmingham has been sold to property investment firm Hammerson for £335m.

    It will provide a much-needed financial fillip for its cash-strapped current owner Birmingham City Council which has now exchanged contracts with London-based Hammerson - also co-owner of the nearby Bullring shopping centre.

    Hammerson is said to be in advanced discussions with an existing joint venture partner about entering into a 50:50 joint venture for the future ownership of Grand Central, which was built as part of the £750m redevelopment of New Street station.

    It co-owns Bullring with Henderson Shopping Centre Fund and CCPIB (formerly Canada Pension Plan Investment Board).

    As part of the transaction, Hammerson has also acquired Ladywood House, a 95,000 sq ft vacant office building adjoining Grand Central with a value of £10m.

2 Cornwall Street
City Centre - 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.
