Thanks Reiss!! Just taken a look at the elevations of the 21 storey tower. Looks very much like the 103 Colmore Row design.

Site Address Former F.G.F Ltd Premises Shadwell House Shadwell Street Birmingham B4 6LJ
Proposal Demolition of existing buildings and erection of a development of 404 apartments in 5 residential blocks with heights of 3 - 21 storeys, with associated communal facilities, amenity areas and parking provision
6.81 The façade has been rigorously examined to test options for ventilation, rhythm,
proportion and depth in accordance with a variety of orders, colours and tones.
6.82 The two central buildings on Shadwell Street (Blocks C and D) have been given more
buff brick to lighten the overall composition and reflect a little more light into the
courtyards from these facades.
6.83 The tallest building (Block B) is split into three forms, the outer two have a light grey
brick and the centre form is expressed as a darker ‘core’. The tallest end of the building
will have its floor bands expressed as a slightly darker horizontal stripe using the same
brick with a darker mortar.
6.84 The vertical expression of Block B is emphasised by a central split in the building which
will created through glazing and will be prominent from the base of the building to its
Good Lord. Not a company that likes to hang around then. Thank you for all the information Birmingham. And good to see you back!!Not to mention they’ve already got a team in place for this and demolition is due to start before the new year apparently for a summer start next year.
Do you know something we don't Pep?Back in June it became apparent they had acquired land on Shadwell Street. Five months later and that planning application has duly arrived 🍌 Revisiting the articles on Property Week I shared, and in The Times, it mentions, as Birmingham stated above, they're firmly dipping their toes in the Second City with as many as five other schemes on the table, each with up to 500 homes in the pipeline.
I wonder if they're eyeing up the area around Steelhouse Lane once BCH moves in early/late 2022, to form a densely-populated resi area
Ha. It would be wise to have some forward thinking on what will be some of the most desirable land in the city, in the next few yearsI like it and these guys sound genuine when it comes to developing in the city. The scheme is far bigger than I anticipated. Very pleased.
Birmingham, any hints about other locations that St Josephs are interested in other than the GQ?

They’ve had a base for about 12 months or so just outside the city so they’ve been working on it and others I presume.Good Lord. Not a company that likes to hang around then. Thank you for all the information Birmingham. And good to see you back!!
Hey Ralph, bookmark this link, this is updated daily with recently registered applications, this scheme and most of the Gun Quarter comes under Aston, but the most of the City Centre and Jewellery Quarter fall under Ladywood, Digbeth falls under NechellsEdit : Reiss, how did you find the app for this? It's not in the most recent weekly list.
Indeed - it's a signal of intent that this will be a good quality proposal on the northern side of Great Charles Street. I do fear for St Chad's though - it's meant to be a historical statement building and it's at risk of getting bullied by high rises going up around it. Snow Hill Three is already looming over it from the other side of the road. Cathedrals also need drives and parks surrounding them - I wonder if one could be cheated out of the space there one day when Charles St is inevitably downgraded?Great to see another rundown part of the city centre being redeveloped. Its also nice to see an area alongside our canal network being given some TLC too.
This development looks very interesting and i love the brick. Thumbs up from me
