Broad Street Tower | Residential | 134m | 38 fl | Canc.

If its already been mentioned before I apologise!

Went into Smiths and had a quick look through EGI!

Theres a small article, with a rendering of the proposed 38 storey tower sited on Broad Street!

Can't F***ing remember who the developer was! Think it's Richardson or Robertson Crosswell!

Woodhousen!

Erm?

Its shape is very similar to a modern day version of Sunley Tower, Manchester!

Fortunately there was no podium and the exterior was totally different of course!

I'd say it's a very safe design and is very similar to some of the towers already in Birmingham!

Sqaure? Brown? Thin? Fat? Spire?

ohwell - another 120m at least thats good news. would've liked something a bit hgiher though, although this will look great in this area, especially if Auchlinleck house developers have proposed something big.

Tall, medium, grey, boxed shape, flatish roof, three up, two down! Getting the picture?

Give us £3.50 that man, and I'll buy a copy of EGi tomorrow and scan it for you!

P.S is it all residential or mixed use? If its mixed we might see it topple HCT in height, and break the so called CAA Barrier which could be all soimportant.

However the good news from this, whatever is that at least developers are building as tall as they can. Thats a good sign for the future, if and when the resticitions are lifted.

I confidently predict this will be just the right height to fall within the CAA height limit.

Still, great news. A few more of these please.

Nice tower, like it a lot.. although not really sure of its location as such.. be nice if someone could use a webbaviation aerial to show where abouts it is, n how close it is to other towers (how it mindles in and such).. 38 Res.. shouldn't be a bad height?? say 120-140m?

From that rendering, the design looks rather nondescript... but at least it's tall.
