Im loving the new renders of the V Building, really hope this tower is not delayed for years and years to come. Hopefully within a year or two, construction should start.

City Park Gate update from Bio

Quote:
News Update
The City Park Gate Development now has its own web site.





A major gateway into Eastside


Outline planning permission has been granted for City Park Gate, the second stage of development in Eastside to use land cleared by the demolition of the elevated Masshouse Circus and the creation of the Moor Street Queensway bus mall. The project will occupy the area bordered by Moor Street Railway Station, the Bullring, Martineau Galleries and the proposed Eastside City Park.

This scheme is a mixed-use development totalling over one million sq ft (approx 93,700 sq m) and will create a major gateway into Eastside, the Birmingham’s new learning, technology and heritage quarter.

Designed by architects MAKE, who have experience of designing advanced, complex and iconic buildings – such as The Cube, the final phase of Birmingham's Mailbox development – the scheme incorporates buildings as tall as 84m (approximately 23 stories).





An attractive new urban area


The City Park Gate masterplan aims to create an attractive new urban area, one reflecting the landscape of the site by stepping down from the city centre edge towards Eastside City Park and Millennium Point.

City Park Gate will include:

844 apartments;

300,332 sq ft (27,900 sq m) of office space;

99,031 sq ft (9,200 sq m) of retail space;

a 150,699 sq ft (14,000 sq m) hotel;



as well as cafés, bars and restaurants that serve to create a lively area throughout the day, week and year.





Sustainable city centre development


City Gate Park is intended to be an example of sustainable city centre development and high quality design, supporting regeneration in the area, and creating up to 730 jobs.

In the words of MAKE:

Environmentally progressive design is delivered by a holistic sustainable approach which balances economic, social and physical impact. The principal environmental strategy has been to consider the balance of energy consumed over the development's entire life - in construction, in use and in the lifestyle choices it allows - and adopt passive design strategies that reduce the requirement for energy consumption.





Creating a vibrant central place


City Park Gate will add to the diversity and attractions in the city centre, creating a vibrant central place between Moor Street Station and Eastside City Park.

Emphasis will be given to create a safe, accessible and attractive environment for all groups in the community, with accessible major pedestrian routes, cycle routes, and opportunities for recreational activities.
and a new website with a funky video on

Come on the rest of the world, lets have some more opinions regarding Birminghams new tower proposals, i think the latest one of the Regal Tower is awesome, even by international standards.

If this is anywhere near as tall as 1 canada square it will be amazing for birmingham. This is really going to dominate the skyline and we couldnt ask for a better tower to do so, BT's time is running out and im glad something of such quality will replace it.

From what we know it is likely to be anywhere between 180m and 210m. Possibly higher but we need to know how many floors it has, as the renders suggest more than 60 but the news articles say 50. Will keep u posted when we find out the exact details later in the month.
