Exchange Square - Birmingham

Residential, office & retail.

Construction group Sir Robert McAlpine has been appointed to kick off development of the Exchange Square residential project in Birmingham city centre.

The firm, which also built 45 Church Street in the business district, will lead the first phase of the project which is one of the final pieces of the long-running Masshouse regeneration near the Bullring shopping centre.


Planning consent is in place for 603 apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedroom units, over three buildings of nine, 16 and 27 storeys respectively on a car park site in front of the Mclaren office building.

Sandblast, that first render you posted is an old proposal that isn't happening now. This will all be residential now. Some of your other construction updates i've noticed have been days or weeks old. Wouldn't it be better when reposting from the Birmingham forum to quote the post with the most recent photo updates? I'm sure the other forumers would be okay with you doing it.

This is what we're getting by the way. Not as exciting, but the houses are much needed

It will. The regeneration of this area, long overdue, is right next to Birmingham's historic Victorian heart ......

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

Excellent to see this coming to fruition, though a shame the above building will be hidden again.
