In pictures: £125m skyscraper for Birmingham
This is Aedas’ £125 million tower for the centre of Birmingham, which the developer says will ‘alter the city’s skyline’
The tower is planned for a Broad Street site near to canalside development Brindleyplace and will include a hotel, retail, leisure and residential space.
Roger Holbeche, managing director of developer Regal Property Group said: ‘Regal Tower will be one of Birmingham’s tallest buildings and is set to alter the city’s skyline.
‘Regal Property Group is committed to the continued development of Birmingham’s Westside and the ongoing success of the city.’
A planning application will be submitted in May. Subject to approval, work is set to start in 2010, with completion expected in 2013.
Councillor Mike Whitby, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: ‘The continued commitment we are seeing from developers and investors, even in these uncertain times, is very encouraging and I believe testament to the long-term stable opportunities that this growing city has to offer.’
