Thanks for the images, PB. If this were in Erdington, I'd be pretty pleased ... but here, a major gateway in to the city centre, it doesn't get my pulse racing. Sorry.

There is no ambition here at all and at this rate we wont have any available plots to put any landmark towers. We might as well be known as BrumP for all the StumPs in the city.

Oh well at least i have my lovely 103 to tickle my tastebuds, cant be too greedy now.

We've got second rate developers grabbing prime areas of land in or close to the city centre throwing up second rate buildings denying other, more worthy contenders from creating something really special for the city ..... and I'm not only referring to tall buildings being built, but World class buildings too.

However Sandblast Seven Capital are not second rate developers, they have done great things in Brum. This goes back to people who make decisons about the city, not the developer.

Tbf SC shot themselves in the foot by not demolishing Park Regis. I reckon the Council would have gladly approved a monster here giving more scope for a taller building behind it.

1FL to compensate for too many Ďtallí buildings, floor to ceiling windows and a lack of car parking...

It's such a generic 'contemporary' design. Seems like almost every other development in the UK that's not a crazy out there novelty thing looks just like that. You probably don't even need an architect for that, you could probably get that at the design aisle in Tesco. I know i'm not contributing anything new to this discussion but what a missed opportunity.

They have produced a very mixed bag imo, some are good like The Kettleworks, SGUV and Fabrick Sq but Madison and Ridley House are awful.

I like this building but I think it would be better if the Broad Street elevation lined up with the front of the cinema and the low rise section of the hotel. Stepping it back makes the low rise section of the hotel look odd.

Obviously the building should have been taller! Itís an attractive looking building. Yes itís a little boring but thatís no reason to shorten it. It would have been ten times more interesting if it was twice as tall.

That one of the back is a new render isnít it? Looks quite good from that angle, a little bit like Viva. Itís been said a million times already but the front part could have really been a difference maker at 30FL+
