Looks quality (y)

The optimist in me can't wait to see this rise but the Brummie in me is dreading the three year wait followed by the inevitable massive scaling down to an insignificant stump :X3:

In other news the tallest tower at Exchange Square Phase 2 is 36 floors and 111 metres, still dont like the design though but a significant tower and next to One Eastside.

Ooooooooooh I love great density and Brum certainly has lots. (y)

Mind you the Crown Plaza hotel is now rather hemmed in :wideyed:

I love how Arena Central and Paradise are shaping up. The transformation of the whole area is already astonishing and it's far from done.

It can't be as bad as those awful Masshouse buildings :vomit:

Eastside is getting some great tall buildings but I hope consideration is given to street level.

Thanks for the info Ray, as soon as I have read my daily FFA news, I will be making a connection with SSC to have a more detailed look at this new tower. It looks different that's for sure (y)

It would be great if someone could get the full text of the article as it's behind a paywall for me.
The full article has been posted on SSC, I'm not sure that I can copy it on to here.

For this development it says 'at least 600 flats in towers of up to 30 storeys'.

For elsewhere in the city it also mentions that 'Birmingham City Council is warming to high density resi schemes' and that 'towers of up to 60 storeys are in pre-application discussions'.
