Was up at the viewing area today and 103 Colmore Row is definitely prominent on the skyline now.

I took a picture but only had my phone so the quality is awful (n)

Court Collaboration today submitted plans for the redevelopment of the Bull Ring Trading Estate site in Digbeth, to be known as “The Stone Yard”. The proposed scheme will provide 928 1 & 2 bedroom apartments with amenity space and 10,000 sq ft of retail and leisure. #CourtCollab




Looks excellent (y)

I'm not totally up to date with all that is happening but that side of Digbeth kind of reminds me of BHX, lots of talk but not so much action?

Not knowing Birmingham that well I've been interested to look at all the new deveopments that are taking place that seem to be transforming the city and its skyline.

Whilst looking for something else on YouTube I came across this short colour film of Birmingham's central areas as they were in 1964. I wonder what people who remember the Brum of 55 years ago think of the contrast that 2019 brings. 1964 probably looks rather quaint to some who weren't around then. The film fascinated me. I used to take 8 millimetre cine films as a hobby and I've got a collection of the UK and beyond as it was in those days and a bit later.

If this film has been linked previously in this thread please accept my apologies for the duplication.

The government is to open a hub in a prominent Birmingham building which will be home to about 1,700 civil servants from 2021.

The hub will be based at Platform 21, which is inside the former Woolworths building in the New Street Conservation area. It will be developed by LaSalle Investment Management working with development manager Evenacre.

It is the second hub to be announced for Birmingham and follows 3 Arena Central, which will house 3,600 staff when it opens in 2021.

This requirement will be taking the entire building which is approx 112,000 sq.ft.

The building is currently being redeveloped and will look like the below photo's.

Great news for the traditional centre of Birmingham which will bring in lots of new business for shops, bars and restaurants. And lots of new punters for our expanded Metro which goes straight past this development.
