Plans submitted for major Birmingham city centre residential high-rise.
London-based developer CEG has submitted plans for a major residential-led scheme on the site of Smallbrook Queensway in Birmingham city centre.
It plans to demolish part of the existing sweep of buildings between the Bull Ring and Holloway Circus to make way for what would be one of Birmingham's tallest residential buildings at 26 storeys.
This would be accompanied by a 9-storey shoulder building lifting the total scheme to over 300 apartments with shops on the ground floor, basement car park and rooftop terraces.
The existing curved part of the building complex from Hurst Street to near Debenhams would be reclad and renovated at a later date to create around 161,500 sq. ft. of office accommodation.
Consultants WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff are involved in architect NORR's designs for the major city centre scheme. Some of the existing Smallbrook Queensway building will be demolished to make way for high-rise residential with the curved building sweep renovated for offices.
