I think the original plan was for Sainsbury's to be involved and for there to be a tall-ish residential tower, but they dropped out and the residential aspect was re-drafted with a lower height.

It would be nice to see Birmingham get some high rise towers like the 200m+ towers that are getting started in Manchester.

Birmingham will get there. More importantly, Birmingham is busy sorting out the 'aesthetics' of the city, and is busy demolishing huge areas of 1960's 'mistakes' in the middle of town.

Exiting times ahead for the Second City!

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

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

BIRMINGHAM CBD - Snowhill

Birmingham Snowhill is where Birmingham's CBD is located, which includes Colmore Circus, Colmore Row, Livery Street and Cornwall Street.

Big developments are now under way, which will capitalise on the fact that the new 250mph (400km/h) high speed line linking Birmingham with London will mean the two cities are just 40 minutes apart by train.
