Assume they have a shedload of money judging by the size of the developments proposed.

What have they built so far?

They're currently building Arden Gate, The Axium and The Toybox and they're responsible for the upcoming SK Digbeth and Holloway Head developments.

(all small scale may I add... strange how they're basically going from a minor developer to the most influential in the city within the blink of an eye)

myles, they're not small scale developments. SK Digbeth and Holloway Head have about 500 units each. They also did the conversion of Sutton Town Hall and the neighbouring new build which was a prestigious project. These guys have got a proven track record and let's hope it continues for many years to come.

The windows in the second render on the building on the left are awful, good to see some renders but it's quite dull design-wise.

We should stop comparing our developments to other cities in the UK, it shows a lack of ambition, we should be looking to the world and what they're doing, some stunning architecture on here, Birmingham has a mention about the library and New Street, nothing else new of note from an international perspective, and that's where we should be competing. https://www.dezeen.com

That being said, decent public realm, not many bars, cafes in this area so good to see some amenities adjoining the residential

Arden gate and toyboz and also Axium are sizeable build projects, itís not so much a jump theyíve just got a smaller plot of land to play with so it goes up instead of out cost wise probably not much difference with land prices etc.

Sorry if itís just me, but there are 2 separate developments being discussed here. 1. One Eastside, the pic on the top of this thread, near emporium, and 2. The Charter, in Digbeth. I was getting confused. Does the Charter need itís own thread?

Thereís not much detail about the charter as yet if wait until we have more info on it before making a thread

Maybe we can discuss the charter in the Digbeth or Birmingham development thread though

For some reason I keep thinking that the taller the building is, the bigger the development is It is nice to see them jumping from midrise to skyscrapers all of a sudden though, a sign of intent!

So do we have x 2 slightly different designs for this tower or do both sides look different as per my CGI and those that myles posted earlier today ??

With this tower, plus all the others in the pipeline due for completion over the next 3 years or so, the view of town coming along the Coventry Road (Bordesley Green Bypass) is going to be phenomenal. My favourite route in to town to view Birmingham's central skyline.

The renders don't match.
The height is impressive.
But dare I say it, I'm not that overwhelmed just yet... the 19 storey build looks like it needs to go straight back to the drawing board. The taller building needs some refinement.

As others have said though. Great to see the talls coming through finally.

The video appears to have been taken down. I'm pleased with this, and it gives me the distraction from Exchange Square phase 1 I wanted! With that and potentially Phase 2 of Exchange Square this is going to be a mini cluster.

Great news, and this development will be just a stones throw from thedevelopment at exchange square. I believe that the height of the tallest tower in phase 2 was at some point to be of similar size to this one although last week the Birmingham post mentioned that this was now expected to be 35 stories although that is still going to be a tall tower for Brum

The view along Moor Street will be impressive, but with 1 big gap and a large car park where Martineu Galleries will be built in 2052
