Regal Tower to crown Birmingham's Broad Street

A £125 million skyscraper on Broad Street in Birmingham has been launched at MIPIM 2009, the real estate and property summit, in Cannes, France.

The tower has been designed by architects Aedas and will be a mixed use scheme incorporating a hotel, retail, leisure and city living situated on the corner of Broad Street and Sheepcote street next to Brindleyplace. A skybar is also planned for the top floor offering amazing views from the 50+ storey tower.

The proposals are being presented to Birmingham City Council's cabinet meeting on Thursday March 19th with a planning application expected in May. Regal Property Group has been working with the city council on the scheme and it aims to be completed for early 2013.

We are continuing to work closely with Birmingham City Council to work up the development proposals and plan to go out to public consultation during April, with a planning application following during May." Subject to planning approval, work on site is expected to commence in early 2010, with the three-year build programme set for completion in early 2013.

The development comes alongside the recently announced proposals for Beorma Quarter featuring a tower adjacent to Selfridges Bullring store and represents important investment in the city during the economic downturn and boding well for future recovery. The development also ties together the development of Broad Street and Westside area which is set to burst into life in the coming years with Arena Central and the new Central Library by centenary square along to the Pentavia and Edgbaston Galleries schemes adjacent to Five Ways island.
