2016 go-ahead for Birmingham’s tallest offices
Posted on: 14/12/2015

Building work for Birmingham’s tallest office tower is due to start in early 2016 after city planners gave the go-ahead for Salhia Investments to start work on the project, valued at £200 million. The scheme, designed by architects Broadway Malyan, will consist of a 30-storey tower offering 150,000 sq ft of offices and 125 apartments. Each apartment will have its own private winter garden and shops at ground floor level alongside the office element.

The council’s planning committee unanimously accepted the development and has been seen as a key regeneration project for the city. The tower will form phase two of the Beorma Quarter development in Digbeth, which will be built directly opposite Selfridges in the Bullring. Phase one of the project was completed by BAM Construction, which consisted of converting the old Digbeth Cold Storage building into offices and a new Adagio hotel.

Phase three of the project will see two further office and residential blocks designed by architects Broadway Malyan. Built off Well Lane, it will be situated at a new public square called Orwell Place and will contain a 13-storey residential building for 69 flats and 7-storey office block.

Broadway Malyan’s Birmingham-based Director, Neil Rose, commented how the site will be close to the planned HS2 station, and will improve economic conditions.

“This scheme will be on the doorstep of the proposed HS2 station and we believe it will not only provide a suitable backdrop for such an important gateway to the city but will be a popular location for occupiers and residents who want easy access to this international rail hub.”
