Looking from the Paradise development .... one of the largest city centre construction sites in Europe. Big changes taking place in the city!

Primark

The Pavilions shopping mall is being converted in to the World's largest Primark store.

That is quite an accolade. Only shoppers in Western Europe, particularly the United Kingdom and Ireland, will appreciate this retail bonanza heading to the Second City .... just a couple of hundred metres from Selfridges ..... at the other end of the shopping 'spectrum'!!!

Built in the late 1980's, the Pavilions was the first shopping centre in the UK to have 4 shopping floors ......






.... now in the process of being converted in to a Primark.








Transformation under way .......

Selfridges Department Store & Bullring Shopping Mall just next door.

What's happening with the existing Primark store just a few metres away on New St?

103 Colmore Row, 26 Floors, 106 Metres

New images give a glimpse into dining 24 floors above the city centre at the top of the new office building.

The CGIs show the new venue atop 103 Colmore Row, the replacement for the old NatWest Tower which is now in the finally stages of being demolished.

The restaurant will be on the 24th floor of the £60 million development and have a bar and room for 175 diners with 26ft tall windows all around its perimeter, providing panoramic views of the city.

The interior will have black marble flooring, timber and artwork as well as a dedicated lift from the building's lobby.

Developers behind the project say the restaurant will create a glowing lantern effect at night which will be visible for miles.

A ground floor venue is also planned which will have a 50-seat café and bar.

The new roof-top restaurant will join Birmingham's other sky bars at The Cube and Park Regis hotel in Broad Street while another is planned near Grand Central.

103 Colmore Row, which will also have 19 floors of new office accommodation, is being developed by Rockpring and Sterling Property Ventures which are currently shortlisting potential operators for both venues.

Eric Linden, European director at Rockspring, said: "103 will be Birmingham's tallest office building. It has a prominent position affording fantastic views of the city and surrounding counties.

"The inclusion of a skyline restaurant in the scheme is important to us. It means these vistas can be enjoyed, not just by occupiers of the building but by the general public too."

James Howarth, managing director of Sterling, added: "The restaurant at 103 will be an exciting addition to Birmingham's already vibrant dining scene and synonymous with some of London's skyscrapers."

NatWest Tower was designed by renowned Birmingham architect John Madin and opened in 1974 but has been vacant since 2003.

Construction to start in summer 2017.

3 Snowhill

Just to add to Brum X's post above .....



.... a CGI view across the CBD from 3 Snowhill.

This view will be transformed by 2019 when this building is occupied. To the left of the image will be the new Colmore Row office tower, currently the tallest office building to be built in the UK outside of London. In the centre will be the new HSBC building & the Arena Central development, and to the right will be the 3 residential towers on Broad Street - the core of the smallest of the 3 just visible.
