Best to get this thread renamed Phase 2 & 3 as they're both under the same application, just beat me to creating a thread for it Van!

I got them directly from the planning application documents on BCC's website. I can't post a link now I'm away from a computer but I think the townscape assessment was on page 13 of the supporting documents.

Then I got a screen grab, pasted into paint, cut out the images, saved as jpegs then uploaded to photo bucket. All while supposed to be working There were a few other images in there but they were less exciting.

Looking through the documents this site seems so badly planned, as i continue to mourn for urban planning in Brum. On the plus side at least we know where all the budget for the previous phase went and then some :P

Now the Birmingham Post has posted an article about it!

http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/busi...-BirmPost-main

Quote:
Plans have been unveiled for Birmingham's tallest office building fronting onto the Bullring and Wholesale Markets.

Long-awaited proposals for the next phase of the Beorma Quarter scheme in Digbeth show developers have increased plans for a giant office building reaching up to 30 storeys.

The tower is set to become the third tallest building in Birmingham after the BT Tower and Radisson Blu hotel if built as proposed.

Kuwait-based property group Salhia Investments, which is leading the Beorma Quarter project, plans to demolish and renovate some existing buildings and erect three new towers on land bounded by Park Street and Digbeth next to Moor Street Car Park.

The scheme has been welcomed by a local business leader who said it strengthened key regeneration plans for the giant Wholesale Markets site.

Paul Garry, chairman of nearby Southside Business Improvement District, said: "The Beorma Quarter is playing a leading role in gentrifying this part of the city and can only encourage further investment.

"Salhia also deserves significant praise for their perseverance with this scheme which is the culmination of ten years worth of effort to get to this point.

"The scheme also reflects the increasing interest in the city from international investors and bodes well for progressing key transformational projects such as the Smithfield markets development site in the near future."

Phase two of the Beorma project would see a 30-storey tower containing office and residential accommodation built directly opposite Selfridges.

The plans, drawn up by architecture firm Broadway Malyan, include the refurbishment of the locally listed 135-136 Digbeth and 137 Digbeth, which will be converted into retail space.

It is also proposed to retain the main Digbeth street fašade of the locally listed 138-139 Digbeth.

I love it when we scoop the media. I'm pretty sure the article is paraphrasing some of our comments.

I'm convinced the Birmingham Post check these boards. That said, it can be very informative on here!

Not as good as the last version but decent at a first look. The view with the church in is really bad though - that might scupper things a bit.

Are those some areas on the roof of the tower like what we have on the library?

Do not like the building in the middle, hopefully it ends up better than the first one did.

What is the rough timescale from planning to construction? Will they be looking for a pre let?

Yep looks great - only problem for me is that it affects the Selfridges curve as the backdrop is glazed / shiny. But yes get on with passing it and building it.

According to the landscaping scheme yes, there will be rooftop terraces as well as green/ brown roofs. There's also a nice touch with a symbolic re-creation of a ditch that historically marked the edge of the settlement running through the middle of the development.

Wow, this "render" looks so much better than the previous "artists impression", if it gets built to this standard I have to say it will be a firtin brilliant addition to the skyline and will compliment both Selfridges and St Martins. Far less fussy and blocky than the previous picture, tall sleek, mostly glass, clean edges.. Fantastic renders. Still real shame about the first phase, it did end up looking mildly better than at first thought but the quality of glass and windows has ruined it, the materials will make or break this. Why the flippin eck can't Blandara come up with something like this in AC.
