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

Taller residential tower for Birmingham?

"Developers behind the multi-million pound revamp of Birmingham’s Smallbrook Queensway have [advised] their proposed 26-storey residential block could be taller."

http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/news...igher-12036552

A proposed 26 storey residential tower could go higher, as Birmingham City Council begins to relax it's 13 year cap on tall buildings.

The proposed 26 storey tower close to the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre, and opposite a planned new hotel tower will also involve the redesign of a 1960's office 'ground scraper'.






The nearby proposed Bloc Hotel Tower (below)

Work is under way to relocate Birmingham's Wholesale Markets, one of the busiest in the UK, from the City Centre to a new site 3 miles away to new 'state of the art' facilites. The vacated site will open up hundreds of acres of prime city centre lands, close to the redeveloped New Street Station and the Bullring Shopping Centre.

Green light for Heathrow, Gatwick and BIRMINGHAM to bring £230billion boost

A BOLD Government plan to expand Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham airports would add £230billion to the British economy within 25 years, experts say.


By CAMILLA TOMINEY AND CAROLINE WHEELER
PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Oct 16, 2016


http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/721...-billion-boost



The proposed high speed train line (HS2) - Birmingham Airport just off to the right.




The new HS2 service with trains running up to 250mph (400kph) will be ideally situated next to Birmingham Airport, and an expanded BHX will take pressure off the overcrowded skies of South-East England. This will bring massive benefits to Birmingham and the whole Midlands region.

Digbeth, Birmingham.


Thanks BB. Connaught Square will be built close to Birmingham City Centre in what was Birmingham's industrial heartland, now a centre for digital & creative technologies.

It will also be close to the new High Speed Rail Terminus at Curzon Street.
