Birmingham City University has submitted plans for a new £123m ($198.6m) city centre campus to the city council.

The new designs include converting a factory into a new 18,000m² building, which will house the Institute of Art and Design.

The facility will include TV, radio and photographic studios.

The original scheme was scrapped because of the proposed high-speed rail station at Eastside.

Construction on the new campus is expected to be complete in 2013.
