32 storeys, including the ground floor. That's an old image Jamie. That 18 storey hotel building has been scrapped, and that is where the new apartment tower will go.

Thanks for posting anyway!



latest image.

Plus, it's 'reign' as the tallest apartment tower in the city will be short lived, as directly opposite this building on the same street, Moda are planning a 37 storey apartment tower ...... with a running track on the roof!!!

Birmingham's two new High Speed Rail stations.

Following on from Bournvillebaggie's post above, Birmingham will have two new high speed rail stations linking the city with London. One station will be in the city centre at Curzon Street, the other will be next to Birmingham International Airport and the National Exhibition Centre, Genting Arena & Resorts World shopping mall & casino, 16 kilometers from the city centre and will be called 'Birmingham Interchange'.

Birmingham International airport will be the first airport linked to the new high speed rail network, which will eventually connect with Sheffield, Leeds & Manchester.

Curzon Street HS2 Station - City Centre






Birmingham Interchange HS2 Station - Airport / NEC, Resorts World

It's pity we have to wait so long for high speed rail. It's least 15 years away. My children will be grown up by then.

I'll probably be dead!!!!

Birmingham is bidding for the 2026 Commonwealth Games, and the City Council is pushing for it to be up and running in the Spring of 2026 .... so just a little over 9 years to wait. Construction starts next year, with the start on the stations 3 years later.

Got a big one here lads!

Went on a trek across Birmingham and had a go at getting most of our developments going up in the city!

First off let's start with demolition.
