Similarly, Bullring on two occasions has been the first of its type in how the principles of the new age of shopping centres in city/town centres should work. A consequence of this is that, White City built 10 years later has refined the initial ideas in Bullring and made them better. However, we were the first to have these principles in any city in the UK.

Depends on what side of the fence you come from.[/QUOTE]

Birmingham might get kudos from the trailblazing of ideas, but having other cities benefit from the mistakes made is of no use to the city. The fact that the 1960's Bullring centre lasted for only c35 years is testament to what a poor shopping area it turned out to be.

And that is why it depends on what side of fence you stand on.

The problem of the pioneer is a constant historical trend and is not just restricted from Birmingham. Manchester is suffering from it now regarding devolution deals, other cities such as Liverpool and Bristol suffered from being the pioneers of trades which subsequently died out (slavery being a key example).

Enabling works to start this month, construction start early next year #Pray4Brum

Quote:
Beorma Quarter building work to start early next year

City planners hail 'major development' as green light awarded to regeneration project which includes Birmingham's tallest office building.

Kuwaiti developer Salhia Investments is behind the project, valued at £200 million, which has been in the pipeline for more than five years. Enabling works are set to commence on site this month.

Broadway Malyan's director Neil Rose said: "The first phase of Beorma Quarter is now complete and Salhia believes the market conditions are right to move on to the next phase which is set to transform this important and historic part of the city.

"The scheme has changed significantly since original proposals were approved in 2009 however we have striven to pay homage to the area's historic roots and retained the concept of expressing the site's medieval burgage plots in the design of the tower.

"The primary façades of the tower will also be faced in sandstone to reflect the underlying geology of the area and to ensure the development remains in keeping with its surroundings where it will act as a bookend for the Selfridges building along with St Martin's Church.

"This scheme will be on the doorstep of the proposed HS2 station and we believe it will not only provide a suitable backdrop for such an important gateway to the city but will be a popular location for occupiers and residents who want easy access to this international rail hub."

£200m Brum mega tower gets green light
By Chris Borland - Thursday, December 10, 2015 14:24

Kuwait-based property group Salhia Investments’ Beorma Quarter mixed-use development, which includes 185,000 sq ft of speculative office space, has today been given the go-ahead by Birmingham City Council.
The city planners approved the Broadway Malyan designed plans for the £200m scheme, which will be Birmingham’s tallest office-led building.

But I thought Manchester's construction spree was going to 'grind us into talcum powder'?

Did I miss something?

The final design (if it is) is s case in point with regard to my earlier argument. I seem to remember that the early designs a few years ago were "different" and interesting. The accepted design is a rectangular box. Why the change?

Yes please, how exciting.

I will be able to see this go up floor by floor from my window at The Brollyworks, the only downside with this is it will block out the glorious summer sunsets that i get in my front room. I think i will beable to put up with that if i have a lovely glass tower towering over my flat though.

GET IT BUILT

This is much more like what Birmingham needs - big and boastful.

This photo which was took from one of our fellow forumers and shows what a huge impact this will have on our skyline. I dont think it will look taller than HCT but our city centre will begin to grow outwards for the first time in years.

It'll look great, this paired with 103 Colmore Row too. Come on Snowhill.

The ex music hall on the corner of Park Street needs to be demolished first!

And maybe that building that got bricked up years ago and then never used.


Ignore the vehicles from the St Patrick's Day Parade in this photo!
