Glenn Howells Architects has submitted plans for Birmingham’s tallest residential tower – a 42-storey skyscraper on the site once occupied by Tramps nightclub
Dubbed 2one2 Broad Street, the £183 million scheme development for burgeoning private rented sector (PRS) developer Moda Living will contain 481 apartments and feature a 200m outdoor running circuit.
The project, opposite Argent’s Brindleyplace, also includes 3,200m² of offices, shops and leisure space and a ‘hotel-style lobby staffed by a 24-hour concierge service’.
Once built, the scheme will be higher than Birmingham’s 130m-tall part-hotel, part-housing 10 Holloway Circus skyscraper by Ian Simpson Architects which completed in 2006. Birmingham’s tallest building overall will remain the 152m-high BT Tower.
The site was snapped up last year from Bloomcrest, a joint venture between Richardson Capital and Cordwell Property Group, spelling the end for previous proposals that featured a 30-storey tower.
Moda Living managing director Tony Brooks said: ‘Birmingham is a fantastic city and our fully managed building will meet the burgeoning demand for quality accommodation.
‘The Moda Living model of single landlord ownership and taking a 360-degree lifestyle approach – covering everything from work to working out – will help meet this shortfall while also raising the bar in the local rental market.’
