This tower will now be called The Mercian

The name Mercia is an old Anglo-Saxon name which included:

Mercia expanded under King Penda and by the 8th century Offa ruled all of England south of the Humber between Wales and East Anglia. ... Anglian settlements in this area may have been (north to south) Sutton, Erdington, Witton, Aston, Nechells, Birmingham, Edgbaston, Harborne and Weoley.

I was lucky enough to have been invited back to Bank II (adjacent this site). This time we shared the roof with the BBC (who were filming a summer solstice piece) and Wates Construction, who invited us to take pics of the many, many, many developments within the city. :nuts:

With some sexy views on what is one of the tallest plots of land in the entire U.K, I took the opportunity to snap Moda's progress. They're making some serious headway

The Birmingham skyline is changing.

Once known as the 'City of a 1,000 Trades' and the 'Workshop of the World', Birmingham led the way across the globe with its manufacturing success. After the decline of the 70s and 80s, the city is now carving out a new future and tall towers like this are only a very small piece of the regeneration of this great city.
