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

BAGOT STREET
Aston

Links: http://www.24dash.com/news/housing/2...-accommodation
  • Sanctuary Students has completed the sale of its Bagot Street accommodation in Birmingham to Arlington Investors.

    Arlington has acquired the site from the leading student housing provider, part of Sanctuary Group, which is located adjacent to the Aston University Campus. Sanctuary will continue to operate the site until 30 June before transferring to Arlington.

    The site provides accommodation for up to 656 students and, as part of the transaction, Arlington has also acquired a parcel of land opposite the property which has planning permission for a further student development.

    Sean McKeown, who joined Arlington Advisors from Campus Living Villages late last year as its Managing Director, added: “We are very pleased to have completed Arlington’s third listed bond issue secured against an outstanding portfolio opportunity, a substantial proportion of which is directly-let and includes a development of a state-of-the-art 16 story tower in Birmingham, which will further enhance our offering in the city.”

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.

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.

You don't get a sense of how close together the Arena Central & Paradise projects are to each other. These two huge developments will totally transform this part of central Birmingham.
