It reminds me very much of what we saw for the St George's House scheme at Hill Street and the GCSQ site proposal that I posted. It's like a cross between the two.

Thanks for all the images and information Brums'grove and Erebus . It looks Ok and bulks up that inhospitable area a lot . It's a pity these student builds can't unite and deliver us a forty storey tower or two .

It sounds like a good idea in theory but in reality you end up with an opal leeds tower

As said, this could turn this area into a mini student village, there is already the studio 52 student accommodation on Bagot St which can be seen on one of the pic from the planning app Erebus posted:

The drawings say that the concrete "cladding panels may slightly vary in tone depending on the mold and cut of the concrete"

New student apartments get Birmingham planners' approval

Jul 24 2009 by Paul Dale, Birmingham Post


Two new apartment blocks in Birmingham city centre capable of accommodating a total of 802 students have been given the go-ahead.

Planning committee members approved a 17-storey and eight-storey block in Bagot Street, near Aston University, and a seven-storey building on the site of a former petrol station in Edward Street, near the ICC.

These two schemes will go some way *toward solving an acute shortage of bed-spaces for students in Birmingham. There is only enough purpose-built *accommodation in the city centre for about a third of the 49,000 full time students at the city’s universities and colleges.

But the high-rise blocks did not please Tory councillor Geoff Sutton, who is campaigning for more family houses to be built.

Coun Sutton (Con Kings Norton) said: “We desperately need three and four bedroom houses in this city, not 802 single beds.”

But Coun Keith Linnecor (Lab Oscott) said: “The students who come to Birmingham from across the country bring a lot of money to this city.
