John Lewis | Pallasades | 250,000 sq ft | Comp.

Over the next two years we shall see a new department store coming to Birmingham!

The redevelopment of New Street station will transform the centre of Birmingham and create the conditions for further investment in the surrounding area including the south side. The project will not only create a world class station, it will open up the city, stimulate regeneration and create new jobs. Network Rail is working with Birmingham City Council to develop plans to upgrade the Pallasades and redevelop the south side. This would enable John Lewis to open a new full-line department store which will be one of the largest outside London.

Quote:
Application Number 2011/02869/PA
Application Type Full Planning
Site Address South side of New Street Railway Station Land adjacent to Hill Street and Station Street Birmingham
Proposal Construction of a new A1 department store including ancillary customer facilities (including customer cafes and restaurants and other customer services) set over four floors, and the construction of two A3 retail units at concourse level, three A1 retail units at hinterland (ground floor) level and three A1 retail units at the lower retail level. The proposed development also includes: demolition work to facilitate construction, provision of drop-off and pick-up areas, extension of the public concourse with a reconfigured access lift and ramp and extension to the public NCP car park on the roof level and ancillary services and facilities.

Moor Street link, whats that? Is it just a pavement from New Street running along side the Odeon and then under the tunnel onto Moor Street Station?

I guess it will be a continuous fancy pavement with little lights in it to lead the way once its dark.

O, I was expecting a tunnel with travelators going along the whole thing.

If it's "one of the largest department stores outside of London",

How far is it off Birmingham House of Frasier, which I believe is the largest department store in general outside London? What's the floor space? We could have the largest and second largest at this rate, lol.

I wonder if HoF still is with the amount of space they have blocked off in there now.

Selfridges is 260,000 sq ft, House of Fraser id guess at 350,000sq ft +?

I think its refering to it as one of the largest John Lewis outside of London rather than largest department store. I think only Cardiff JL is bigger than this outside London?

Floorplans

Just in-case nobody wants to wade through the Planning App for the floor plans

Platform Level

Concourse Level

Pallasades (Level 1) - There's a bit more of a change to the Retail Units at the point where the escalators currently come up than there was previously

Level 2

Level 3

Level 4

Roof

Great. Just what this country needs. Another shop.

Cool looking though and I'm a big fan of John Lewis. They are my goto for stuff that is nice but not too pricey because it's too full of itself. I always liked the ice-cream in their shop as a kid too.

It will also mean my friend and his new wife can spend those John Lewis vouchers I gave them for their wedding. I didn't really think whether there was a John Lewis local to them in South Staffordshire when I got them.

They could always go and spend them in Waitrose in Stourbridge or Wolverhampton instead if they don't want to wait until 2014!

Or they could just go to John Lewis in Solihull, sorry to state the obvious.

The metal roof beams have now vanished, just the outer shell left now, most likely see the shell start to disappear too, scaffolding around the car in preparation from demolishion.

It might just be another shop, but I prefer John Lewis a thousandfold to the money maker that is Selfriges. John Lewis prices at least are the same as elsewhere, whereas Selfriges will charge you £1.99 for a 330ml bottle of Coca Cola just because it's olympic branded, or some £7.99 for a box of lucky charms that can be bought for £1.50 up North!

John Lewis sell Lego too.. better selection than The Entertainer by far. That's always a good thing. >.> I wish we could get an official lego store back.

I must say the plot of land for JL looks quite small in pictures, even when I walk past it looks quite small. However I have a feeling once the shell begins to go up its going to look huge and dominating coming right up to the road.

You're probably not old enough to really remember how small the Selfridges plot looked when it was just a hole in the ground all those years ago...

LOL, you are correct, I think my earliest memory of not only Selfridges but the City Centre as a whole would of been driving up from Digbeth and driving along side Selfridges when it was covered as it was under construction, I remmember it looking huge to me.

My first time going into Birmingham was to see the new Bullring the Christmas after it opened, and I've lived in Wolverhampton since 1990!

These pics make me very happy. I can't believe how small HMV is going to be though, considering the size of the vacant unit next to it. They seem to like small stores right now.. I know there's already one in the Bullring and one in the High Street, but still, I can't see it stocking anything worthwhile being that small.
