This third pic shows a very impressive late 19th/early 20thC facade, particularly when opened up. Such a pity that a grand public space is not being formed here rather than construction on this site of this new somehat bland contemporary building.

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

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

We were all threating about the Holiday Inn's render, and its one of the few building which looks exactly like the render.

The Personal & Business sectors of HSBC will be headquartered in Birmingham. A major coup for the city.

HSBC Birmingham

The cladding on the building in these renders has a 'Flintstones' feel about it to me .... hopefully the detail will be World class!
