Design and Access Statements are now up, and there's a lot of information!

Elevation I've got from the D&A Statements

220m would give us the 5th tallest building in the UK.....

And yes, the night-time render is just sexual.

Need to hope that top part doesn't look like the awful rear of Beetham Manc. It would really blight St. Martins and Selfridges if they get that bit wrong.

Such a shame its not on higher ground though so it would have even more of an impact on the skyline. So is the general consensus that this is legitimate and not just an attempt to boost the value of the site??

If the intention is to steal a march on office space in preparation for HS2 then it couldn't be better placed, either geographically or timewise.

That's my worry. Beetham Manc is one of the ugliest tall buildings I've seen in the UK (though I know many others love it), so for me this needs to be significantly better.

I'm really liking the renders though - I take it from the picture of the couple on the "balcony" that some of this is residential?

This, 103 Colmore Row and Snowhill 3 demonstrate a city with ambition. Love all of them, just hope they get started. Well, finished too!

Just to be sure, this tower is not going to be over 200m+, it 220m above sea level but the tower will only be 113m tall? is that right?

Great signal of confidence but I'm also really disappointed that some of the strongest aspects of the previous designs have been lost. The new design has so little identity, and the fact that many can compare it to many recent towers that have been proposed/built make this seem like a shade into more corporate blanditecture - not something I really want to see creeping into Digbeth especially. I'm particularly cautious about a couple of views such as from the Bullring.

On the plus side, the design is much stronger at ground level. It's a strong centrepiece statement for the area also. And it makes the new hotel at Beorma look even more disgusting so should hopefully hasten its demolition.......

It's comical. Post has the old image and mail using the old image as well. Very very poor journalism
