Glenn Howells reveals plans for Birmingham's tallest resi tower

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.’

  • So is there any 360 degree affordably housing?

    Why do people always make it political. We do not live in a socialist society thank god.

    Just because you can't afford the pent house in one tower in central Birmingham doesn't mean it is not affordable.

    If you live with such envy then go an earn more, and stop standing in the way of progress.
