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

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.

  • Current status: Under Construction

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

I'm not even sure whether the final design for the tower has been confirmed .... which I think it hasn't. Strange project this .... Kuwaiti money, but there seems to be delay after delay.
