Construction of £40m Birmingham tower development set to begin soon
Construction of a £40m scheme to build a pair of brand new tower buildings on Broad Street in Birmingham is set to begin later this year.
The Bank development, at the heart of Birmingham’s West End, includes the construction of a 18 storey, 180 bedroom hotel, with a ground floor restaurant and cafe.
There will also be a 22 storey residential tower, with 189 apartments and a ground floor retail or restaurant property.
Birmingham based Regal Property Group are behind the project, which has been designed by Glancy Nicholls Arcitects.
Mark Holbeche, Director of Development at Regal, said: “The Left Bank development will deliver in excess of £40m of investment into Broad Street and Brindleyplace Quarter and Glancy Nicholls have done a fantastic job of designing a scheme that will provide a range of stylish homes with stunning views over the city.”
The original vision of the project was a £125m tower, 150ft taller than the BT Tower, but these plans were scrapped in favour of two towers with varying purposes and that benefit the public realm.
Lyndon Glancy, of Glancy Nichols Arcitects, said: “The scheme has been deisgned alongside City Council Planners Urban Designers to ensure this gateway site provides a high quality response to this prominent gateway location. We believe we have designed two great buildings that will complement both Brindleyplace and Broad Street, but also introduce new areas of high quality public realm.”
