Exchange Square 2 | Residential/Hotel | 36/14fl | 111/51m | Prop.

*** Amended 24/10/2017 ***





Exchange Square Phase 2, Birmingham

Phase 2 of Exchange Square, in Birmingham City Centre, is the final phase of Nikal’s £350m Masshouse project.

Nikal is currently seeking planning for a landmark new apartment building to be constructed which, if approved, will be Birmingham’s’ tallest residential building and a high profile landmark for those arriving at Birmingham Curzon HS2, which is directly opposite the site.

Planning consent is in place for 223 apartments, which Nikal is looking to increase up to circa 565 units across a part seven storey, part 46 storey tower.

In addition to the residential, the scheme would benefit from circa 12,500 sq ft of external amenity space across three outdoor terrace/garden areas and circa 21,000 sq ft of amenity and retail space on the lower ground and ground floor levels.

In addition, and subject to planning, there is the potential for stunning 46 th floor 4,024 sq ft residents’ sky lounge with 1,348 sq ft garden area.

If planning is approved, work is expected to start in Q2 2018 with completion forecasted for Q2 2021.

Work on Phase 1 Exchange Square is currently underway with the first of the three buildings under construction.

Subject to planning, once complete Exchange Square will deliver over 1,200 much needed residential units into a gateway project within Birmingham City Centre.

Ian simpson of Beetham Manchester fame??

edit: In fact much of Manchester City Centre after the IRA bombing if my memory is correct.

That link also states that funding has been secured for Exchange square.

If he can't deliver for his beloved Manchester, I dread to think what he will come up with for Birmingham

Walked past One Blackfriars, in Southwark the other day. If we got something like that I'd be happy

Ian Simpson has a great track record IMO.

The 3 Beetham Towers, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool, have redefined the Skylines of all 3 Cities.

The cladding lets down all of those

And he is also responsible for this remember:

I think it looks good from Holloway Circus. The blue cladding is tacky. Why the curve couldn't have been replicated at the back of this I don't know.

The best view of it is from the Arcadian and up towards St Andrews as you get the slimline version and don't see the misaligned windows.

It could be a smart little cluster. You've got some very good density around here already, bang a 32, 26 floor towers into the mix a couple of 15 floor midrises and who knows what's proposed for the CEAC site and martineau galleries. Eastside and snowhill should morph into quite the area. Infact, all around the cities clusters of very dense areas are forming.

I'd assume so. They say this phase is due for planning very shortly also the fact EGI are reporting it's 32 storeys suggests it has. Very specific.

Okay I'll stop moaning about Plot E Arena Central if we actually get a 100m proposed (and delivered) here

Yes Reiss but it might be several years before this gets built.

Is the 100 metres just an estimate?

Residential is predominantly 3.1m tall per floor. It's an estimate but it'll be between 95-105m tall.

E.G

Phase 1 - 15 storey block is 52m = 3.46m
Phase 1 - 26 storey block is 78m = 3m
Phase 2 - 32 storey block minimum is 96m & max is 111m (extreme)
