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.


  • 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.”
