Give me a week and I'll work on it then (I won't have access to my comp for five/six days as I'm going to be away on recuperative duty at my family's).

Yeah! Why the hell not?

Brindleyplace has been a huge success, perhaps the demand for greater floor space (bearing in mind the restricted sites along this already rather narrow corridor) can ultimately dictate that future buildings will go UPWARDS rather than outwards!

sorry Dave, i heard its only going to be around 6-8 storeys and mainly offices. It all could change though and i would have thought Argent would like to substantially venture into the residential market. A Brindleyplace tower does sound nice though

Good news on this tower btw, although the rendering is only a basic visual and seems to show the back of the tower?, This CAA malarky is really annoying, if this tower is on much higher ground than HCT therefore i think the height limit on that ridge area is about 100m, but this will be at least 15 -20m over that possibly more. From some views this should appear taller than BT tower. Hopefully a 100m on the Fiveways shopping centre site and it will look great.

A completely forgot about the 5 Ways Tower - Any more news on that. I just really want to see what they propose at Auchinleck House, thats gonna be one of the biggest developments in Birmingham.

P.S Totally agree about this CAA ruling. This building itself is on much higher ground the HCT and looks to be taller then Beetham aswell. This could be what we need for others topress forward with taller structure and like you say this could act as a 150m tower jsut because of its position. it will look roughly the same height as BT.

Abount Brindley Place - Whatever go's up next is more then likely to be bigger then whats already there, If its not it will look immensly retarded in the whole lay out. Just lookat all the gaping room ready to be developed. I see at least 3-4 plots on the golden mile just gagging to be exploited by some big ass developers building tall.

Its also nice to see that instead of being a well organised line of high-rises, this one will venture diagonally inticing people to view it. I wouldnt be suprised to see some neon lighting scheme at the front with the name of the tower or hotel on it.



Look how tiny the building on the immediate right of the building is. Woodhousen got it almost perfect

P.S My predicted height for this building, taking into account the surrounding buildings and heights of them - I reckon it be about 125-130m, well taller then anything else currently in the city bar BT. or hopefully twice the height of Quayside - and up to 140m (now I am wishing)

It shoudl be pretty visable in this shot though when finished.

Hopefully it'll be at a height that won't fully fit in this pic

Good luck moving those people out their houses - I'm sure any developers would rather crack on with brownfield sites that dont involve buggering about with buying out a whole bunch of existing occupants. I still think we should be building taller with greater density - clustering - at eastside, and restrict highrise development in the western part of town to places like paradise circus, arena central, this site, and maybe a few others like the HCT corner of the city centre - make landmark towers that stand out.

The Travelodge building looks like several porta-cabins stacked on top of one another - with a strip of white gaffa tape down the middle holding the two stacks together.
We could either stack more porta-cabins on top and make it into a tower, or peel away the gaffa tape and hope the whole thing falls down.

It was the worst reclad in history - they acually made the building uglier than it already was.
