Looks great, surprising how much Broad St bends once then back around Bank, I never notice that much walking it.
The Square is opposite the Broad St cinema right?

And to think, Regal were being mentioned in the same disdain as Beorma.

Didn't we see this recently?

There was a mention of it on the 100 Broad Street thread from 29/07/2019:

This was referring to a visual of something on The Square site on page 13 of the D&A 3 for 100 Broad Street, looks about 90 to 100m. 2019/05158/PA.


Plus the site was up for sale in May as noted by Birmingham on the Official Development thread:

The Square on Birmingham’s Broad Street hits the market

Freshwater Group and the Schools of King Edward VI have instructed Highgate Land and Development, Avison Young and JLL to sell the long-leasehold of The Square on Birmingham’s Broad Street.



The 1.7-acre site is being sold on a 250-year lease. It includes an office building of 14 terraced blocks of up to four storeys arranged around a central courtyard.

It currently comprises a 55,115 sq ft occupied office, with tenants including Compttec, Connect Church and Mooville Theatre on short-term leases. Vacant possession will be provided on completion.

Birmingham City Council has approved the development of 98 residential apartments through permitted development rights on the site, however the agents anticipate a larger residential scheme of more than 500 flats.

Broad Street has been identified as an area for high-rise development.

A number of prominent resi schemes are under way, including Moda Living’s 481-home, 42-storey build-to-rent scheme The Mercian at 212-223 Broad Street and Regal’s 394-home, 31-storey scheme at 60 Sheepcote Street.

The site sits between the affluent Edgbaston estate and the new Arena Square, with Brindleyplace and Five Ways train station both within a five-minute walk.

Agents have not disclosed a guide price for the site, but said they are accepting unconditional and subject to planning offers. Bidders will be judged on a combination of price and design. The deadline for bids is 12 June 2019.

According to Radius Data Exchange, Freshwater Group paid £9.3m for the long leasehold in a deal that reflected a 9.16% yield in 2005.

Marks Birks, head of regional land and development at Avison Young, said: “The proposed redevelopment of the former Square office scheme presents a unique opportunity to promote and deliver a gateway site into Birmingham City Centre.

“The wholesale regeneration and extent of development within this area of Birmingham offers an exciting site with the potential to create a scheme of significant scale.”

Richard Roberts, director at Highgate Land and Development, said: “We’re expecting interest in the site from a variety of national and regional developers. Proposals are likely to be on the basis of a comprehensive high-rise new build development.”

ETA: Yes, the site visit to The Bank was on 16/05/2019 and Moseleyan did mention that Regal were after the Square and two other sites. I would assume the mock up on the D&A for 100 Broad Street was not done with any detailed knowledge of any proposals but on the assumption it would be a tall. Anyone able to confirm a buyer for the site?

The big bend in Broad Street is near the Black Sabbath bridge/Brasshouse pub. It bends significantly to the left heading towards Five Ways. If you look at the aerial photos on the Paradise website this is pretty obvious.

This tower would of looked so much better if it had the same number of windows on the left hand side than the right hand side.

It just looks weird on one side you have that big wall of plastic from top to bottom but on the other side this is broken up by a column of windows from top to bottom ????

Any reason for this ??

That's something i would have probably never noticed had you not mentioned it. Doesn't bother me much to be honest. I do love this building

Few pictures from this morning.

Have to admit, I'm not at all a fan of the cladding pattern used on this silver building. I do like the gold vs. silver concept but would've preferred to see the same idea used in the gold build with the two shaded cladding.

That said, a much more even vertical pattern rather than the hotch-potch design seen here could have looked better than what we have.

Exactly, by simply having a presence on Broad Street they will make a killing. I don't mind the Novotel at all. But Travelodge has got to be one of our biggest eyesores.

Adding some floors onto Novotel would be preferable - I like its nod to Iberia.
