There's been excellent progress on site since the site recommenced after lockdown. The main tower, which will rise to 21 storeys, is now presiding on its 11th floor.

Three of the four smaller blocks have now officially reached their full height and fabulous new feature roofs are being applied.

Brickwork also continues at a steady pace across the blocks.⁣

Birmingham, Chamberlain Square is Close to Re-Opening

It looks as if Chamberlain Square in the very heart of the city is soon to re-open and will once again become a primary destination for Brummies and visitors alike. It does look familiar and at least one of the statues, Thomas Attwood, is being reinstalled. 8 of the latest photos in this post plus a look back at the square before the redevelopment, seems so long ago now, we can't wait!

The Construction of 103 Colmore Row - Late June 2020

103 Colmore Row claims to be 'Above all else', well it pretty much is now as it's on the top of the ridge above the Rea Valley where the city centre drops down towards Digbeth and Southside. The building is very close to structural top out and the cladding is being glimpsed from much further away now. Loads of photos in this post from our regular contributors...
