First images of the 'super slender' £58m city centre hotel in Birmingham

Birmingham Mail logo Birmingham Mail 2 days ago Tom Dare

These are the first images of the brand new ‘super slender’ hotel tower set to be built in the heart of Birmingham.

Planning permission was granted for the tower by Birmingham City Council despite the objections of other skyscrapers within the vicinity.

Set to be built at 211 Broad Street, the £58 million city centre aparthotel will boast 264 self-contained rooms, along with a range of amenities such as a bar, restaurant, gym and residents lounge. 

Images show how the inside of the new apartments will look, as well as providing a preview of the outside of the 37-storey building, which is set to measure 116.5m tall and just 9.5m wide.

An application to construct the hotel had been in doubt earlier this week, after neighbouring skyscrapers voiced their objection to Birmingham City Council’s planning committee.

Both the Mercian building at 212 Broad Street and Cumberland House, on the other side of the development, had objected to the proposals, with both stating they would not allow cranes, equipment or materials to oversail their adjoining land during construction.

However such concerns were dismissed as ‘nimbyism’ by councillors at the planning committee.

And Lisa Deering, Director at Glancy Nicholls Architects, who designed the building, believes that it will  be an ‘iconic’ addition to the city centre. 

“Advances in engineering and construction technology have allowed us to design an iconic building that will enhance Birmingham’s skyline and bring a new type of skyscraper to the city,” she said.

“It’s great news that 211 Broad Street has been given the go-ahead and we’re very much looking forward to seeing the building take shape. This is an exciting project to be part of and a key milestone for Birmingham’s architecture.”

Work on the site is expected to begin later this year, though a completion date has not yet been announced.
