Should have been much taller given it's foot print but this will be a decent filler for that corner.

Leeds and Manchester use these student halls developments as an opportunity to build significant talls...not in Birmingham chaps :lol:

have you seen opal one (i think its called that) in Leeds. Would rather have no talls than a piece of crap like that on the skyline.

Yep I know it well, adopted Brummie, but Leeds is my home town. Opal one isn't great, but at the moment what have we got in the pipeline that's anywhere near it ...oh yes "Dandara's stunning apology of a building" :wtf:

After rejecting the 20 flloors they came back with a 15 floor design which was also rejected.The 11 floors look too bulky ; the extended peak would have nicely broken the overpowering mass.
