Defiantly hope this happens, such a lovely building with a lot of potential. Development slowly creeping down Corporation Street is always a good thing.

Good to see it becoming retail again. Hopefully the Metro will go some way to making the arcade more popular.

It's going to take years for Corporation Street to recover after the years of disruption. I just hope HoF hangs on.

Temple Court used to be occupied by the Ministry of Justice - all have moved out to other buildings or across to the other half of the building - Priory Courts.

Quite possible that the M of J may move back in and the existing division between the two halves removed so that Temple and Priory effectively form one.

Planning document mentions a significant office occupier looking to consolidate. I reckon it's the M of J.

Green light for Birmingham Temple Court revamp
Aaron Morby | Tue 1st September | 7:08

Developer Legal & General Property has secured planning permission for the refurbishment of the Temple Court building in Birmingham.

Four firms – BAM Construct, Galliford Try, Wates and Willmott Dixon – are bidding the landmark building revamp, which includes construction of an extra floor taking it to seven storeys.


Demolition firm Squibb will now start strip out with a main contract award expected within the next few months.

Constructed in the 1920s, originally as the Lewis’s Department store, the property is located in the heart of Birmingham next to Old Square.

Temple Court

The EPR Architects designed project will provide 110,000 sq ft of Grade A flexible office accommodation.

Charlie Walker, Fund manager to the UK Property Income Fund II, said: “With strong growth in the Birmingham office market and the continued trend for major relocations to the city, the sensitive refurbishment of this landmark building will be an important step in meeting growing occupier demand.”

LGP has been particularly active in the central Birmingham market over the last 18 months.

Think we'll see another crane here shortly.

Is the being built with the tenants still in place? Not much time to get this turned around.

Willmott Dixon set for Birmingham Temple Court overhaul
Aaron Morby 15 mins ago

Developer Legal & General Property is understood to be in final negotiations with Willmott Dixon to extend and upgrade the Temple Court building in Birmingham.

BAM Construction had been in talks for the landmark building revamp, which includes construction of an extra floor taking it to seven storeys, but walked away after failing to agree a final price on the major refit.

A source told the Enquirer: “BAM ended negotiations earlier this year and now Willmott Dixon looks set to agree a deal to deliver the project.”

Constructed in the 1920s, originally as the Lewis’s Department store, the property is located in the heart of Birmingham next to Old Square.

That roof extension/plan bothers me a little.

I think if it was uniform and went all around the top of the building it would look fine
