103 Colmore Row

Developers Sterling Property Ventures and Rockspring have received planning permission for construction of an office tower at 103 Colmore Row in Birmingham, UK.

Birmingham City Council has granted permission for the developers to demolish the 22-storey, 1970s-built NatWest Tower on the site where the new £60m development is planned.

Sterling construction director Peter Graham said: "It means we can now move this project off the drawing board and on to site, replacing an outdated, inefficient building with a modern, landmark office development that Birmingham can be proud of."

Expected to be 105.5m-high and 26-storeys high, the new building will be the tallest office in Birmingham and in the UK, outside of London.

"It means…replacing an outdated, inefficient building with a modern, landmark office development that Birmingham can be proud of."

Doone Silver Architects was responsible for designs of the development, which will feature 200,000ft² of Grade A office space over 19 floors, with floorplates of up to 12,000ft².

The structure will feature a winter garden, a café facing Colmore Row, and a retail unit fronting Newhall Street at street level.

A 8,600ft² restaurant has been planned to sit at the top of the building, offering 3,250 ft2 of ‘lantern’ space with 360° views of the city.

Developers are expected to start construction in mid-2016, and works are scheduled for completion mid-2018.
