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

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.

Birmingham is the second popular destination in UK

Hang on... Birmingham was the best City in the World in 2014? Is that even a thing? How could you measure that?

And since when does Birmingham have the most iconic Modern Architecture? You're telling me that Brum has more iconic architecture than say The Gherkin in London (a globally recognizable landmark that tourists flock to so that they can take a selfie with it in the background and is featured in 100's of films and TV Shows)?
