    Positive news about the Beorma Quarter and 113metre tower. :) Below article was from the Salhia website who are building this development and from the Annual report 2017, summarizing the last year up to 31.12.2017

    "Development of new prime residential stock, especially in the City Centre, is limited. Supply is expected to pick up during 2018, but there will still be an annual shortfall. Birmingham’s mix of regeneration, re-development and job creation, as well as the relatively lower entry price for property, means that its draw to homebuyers and investors is likely to continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Phase 1 of the Beorma Quarter having been completed, the 108 room Adagio aparthotel continues to trade very successfully at around a 90% occupancy rate. Three floors of the Grade II Listed Coldstore in Phase 1 have now been let to The Prince’s Trust as their Midlands Headquarters and they have committed to a very significant fit out expenditure. One of the two retail units under the Adagio hotel is also under offer to a major tenant. This will significantly enhance the profile of the scheme. Demolition has commenced on site in preparation for commencement of construction of Phases 2 & 3 of the scheme, to include the 30 storey tower and this is progressing well. The Beorma Quarter will be a very exciting development which has already attracted major occupiers and which will contribute significantly to the changing face of Birmingham City Centre."

    However with the state of retail on the high street, does Birmingham really need another shopping centre bigger than the Bullring ???? I say Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    What Birmingham needs is more quality affordable housing, mixed use leisure facilities in the heart of the city and yes maybe a few more shops but not on that scale we dont. :unsure:

    St Paul's is such a great spot on a nice day, finding a nice squat and just siting back and relaxing with a coffee. There's also some cracking restaurants and bars.

    Sinking the Queensway would really improve connectivity between the Jewellery Quarter and the city core but I have to wonder how it would affect places such as St Paul's? At the moment it's an oasis of calm in the middle of the big city but if the natural flow started bringing in mass visitors would that be ruined?

    I've not seen the Bank Towers with my own eyes yet but from the pictures the quality looks top notch.

    I need to schedule a trip into Birmingham to tour some of our developments :)

    It's an absolute monster of a building.

    I have a rare weekend free so I think it may only be right to make a trip into Central Brum :)

    I look forward to your update Mr finkle. Sorry I have been a bit lapse with hardly any photos lately but I have been decorating the last few weekends and hopefully this will be the last and can get it finished. I really hate it, prefer going to the airport or taking pics of central Brum in my spare time. Who wants to bloody paint , pfffffffffft
