Speculative Birmingham tower plans emerge
March 11 2011
Proposed by site owners Lee Longlands, the tentative towers final height will be dependent on whether the applicant plumps for a 310 bed hotel, 338 student bed space or 16,125sqm of office accommodation.
In any event the scheme will incorporate 2,200sq/m of retail to replace that lost when the existing department store is demolished.
The art deco façade will be retained however, acting as a contrast to the modernist edifice above in a similar vein to Foster’s Hearst Tower, New York.
