Chuffed that the top of Broad Street is back to having fully functioning buildings again. Taken a couple of decades for this to happen. Scandalous.

It seems apparent to me that above the third floor they will be employing a different form of construction. Probably pre-cast units. All the in-situ concrete has stopped at the third floor level with no starter bars showing above the columns or lift shafts. Does anybody know?

I like this one, nice and modern looking, if only it was over 30 storey's. It would of been the best looking tower in Brum. After 103CR of course.

Flagship Birmingham City Centre – 95% Sold Just One Year After Launch

SevenCapital’s flagship development St Martin’s Place is nearly sold out only one year after going on sale off-plan.

Boasting 228 luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the company now only has a mere five per cent left available which is a huge testament to how fast the city is growing in popularity with more professionals coming to the area who are looking for high-end accommodation.

The building features a state-of-the-art gym for residents only, Wi-Fi lounge as well as a private cinema. They is also a courtyard garden sitting area which is on the podium level of the centre of development.

The apartments are located in a prime area making public transport accessible from a walking distance, but there are also major retail and entertainment centres close by. It is no surprise why St Martin’s Place has done well selling off most apartments.

Andy Foote, director at SevenCapital, said: “When we revealed our designs and plans for this fantastic development one year ago, we knew we were launching a truly unique offering for the city – something that the city had never seen before. We’re very pleased that the development has been so well received so quickly. It proves Birmingham’s growing status as a place for people to live, work, play and invest.

“This city is truly world-class, which has been proven by its recent coup of being chosen as [the] host city for the 2022 Commonwealth Games – which future residents of St Martin’s Place will be perfectly placed to enjoy. As the city continues to develop, with so much still in the pipeline, it will continue to attract people looking to make Birmingham their home. It’s a very exciting time.”

St Martin’s Place is still under construction, situated between Broad Street and Tennant Street, closeby to the Five Ways area of the city where SevenCapital also completed The Lansdowne development.

Great news for this development!

There are two multiplex cinemas and at least two huge gyms spitting distance from this - I just don't get why they big-up on-site gyms and cinemas that will never match the real thing. Marketing rubbish?

WiFi Lounge?? WTF is the point of that? :/

God forbid that 100m down the road, people are living in apartments for social rent and you, having paid £2-300k and service charges, would need to mix with them.

Maybe they'll install an Internet Cafe so residents can update their MySpace pages.

Do you think their PCs will come with the latest version of Netscape Navigator? I want to be able to surf the Web.

What is this new-fangled InterWeb of which you speak?

Is it to do with Spider Man? Will he be living at St.Martins Place?

How exciting!

Might just be me but this looks terribly poor. I'm very glad the Council told them to reduce the height (if true) because its frankly rubbish.

It would have looked slightly odd having a 30 storey tower not at the corner, and the 13 storey Park Regis next to it on the corner...

The contrast in opinions is amazing.

I cant see any problem with this at all, it's a good unexpected filler for me, similar in that respect to Lansdowne.

The Port Loop development seems to be getting approval generally from the SSC forumers, but I think those builds so far are appalling. A big blank canvas site, with loads of water frontage and huge potential, and for me it's an absolute shocker so far.
