While London is thinking about tall buildings, Birmingham has approved one. hok's £300 million City Tower scheme in Birmingham, granted outline planning consent last week, could be Britain's tallest building when it is built. Initial plans put it at 250m high, second to Canary Wharf, but developer Hampton Trust said that the city's councillors have called for it to be made 'more slender and taller', possibly higher than its 285m London counterpart. Part of a leisure and entertainment quarter called Arena Central, it is subject to a Section 106 agreement.
