Bridgewater Place development gets go ahead

  • Comment

New towers are due to spring up in Birmingham and Leeds. Abbey Holford Rowe has just been granted planning permission for its Bridgewater Place development in Leeds (right), a £70 million,30-storey scheme which has attracted criticism from CABE (AJ 21.6.01).Revisions to the project include a reduction in the length of the main building, leading to a loss of 40 apartments. The atrium and entrances have also been reconfigured. And Ian Simpson Architects has just released this image (left) of a 45-storey tower for Birmingham's Holloway Circus, which was given planning consent in May (AJ 3.5.01).The 167m tower, engineered by Battle McCarthy, will be the tallest residential tower in Europe when completed in 2003.
