The 40th floor terrace (3.1m in size) will be created at both ends of the building, adding visual interest to the top of the tower. These terraces will be surrounded by a 3.5m high balustrade to provide a safe environment for residents.

Eventually, the facade will wrap around it to continue its relationship with the rest of the building, with the top finished in a slightly lighter coloured bronze fin panel, providing an elegant crown element to the landmark building.

The Construction of The Mercian - July and August 2020

Post image

We've now reached the 27th floor on the main tower, with the main core now sitting pretty on level 29/30. It won’t be long now before it exceeds the 100m mark and saunters above Bank Tower II, adjacent.

Plenty of images here from our trusty team, with images going back to mid-July. Enjoy!

Works have started in earnest on the 27th floor of this 42-storey development (132m), as seen above, with the core also continuing its upward surge and is almost at the 100m stage.

Facade works on the main tower is noticeably well advanced too; now wrapping itself around level 12, with the already topped-out 14-storey shoulder reaching the penultimate floor. Enjoy the mega update from Daniel, Stephen & Elliott.

Work is well underway on the facade installation, and it's looking good! The core has now reached level 15, with the 14-storey shoulder very close to topping out, with all floors edging upwards on a daily basis and showing its impressive bulk!

Another superb picture update from Daniel, Reiss and our legion of passionate contributors.

The big news this month is of course, the installation of the facade. Interestingly, the side facade on the shoulder element (facing camera) will see all solid panels; this is to avoid overlooking onto the upcoming 211 Broad Street slender skyscraper development - which can be viewed here

Enjoy this late March to present day update from Daniel and Reiss, with positive contributions from others.

The Construction of the Mercian - March 2020





A double update this time with photos from February and the first week of March. The core is rising visibly onto the skyline; now reaching level 11, with the main floors creeping up and starting to show its impressive bulk.

 


With the three-storey podium constructed, attention now turns to the residential aspect above.

This will see the erection of a 39-storey residential tower, with a 14-storey shoulder element. Once complete, The Mercian will yield 481 apartments, all exclusively for rent.

The core slipform is growing in size every couple of days, with the core now sitting pretty on level 10 (March 9th), as seen below.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/MODA Timelapse 9th March 2020.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />Image from Moda Reachtimelapse

Construction of the floors are also creeping up quickly, with the main tower approaching level 10 from Tennant Street, and level 9 from Broad Street.

The 14-storey shoulder is, at this moment in time, halfway through completing its 9th floor. Impressive stuff.

The Construction of The Mercian, Broad Street - January 2019

Post image

Here's the latest construction photo gallery for the 42 storey, The Mercian, on Broad Street. 

Most of the lower section is structurally complete with the cores still rising and the main tower structure has moved on to the main floors. It is starting to impose itself on the scene and it won't be long before itstarts to compete with Bank Tower Two opposite.

The core riseth.

The concrete core for the Mercian on Broad Street is now rising visibly and is set to fly up over the next few months, a good part of the lower structure is built too. We also see the cladding test rig installed. Lots of photos in this construction update.

Work progresses at pace at The Mercian, Broad Street, Birmingham - see our November 2019 update

Work progresses at pace at The Mercian, Broad Street, Birmingham - see our November 2019 update





Take our post for an early November update of the construction work at The Mercian including some great photography. 


Both cores have risen considerably since the last update, with the main core now sitting pretty at level 4. Just a mere 38 to go!

The pumping of concrete continues, as does the construction of new floors, as seen below.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/Constructiomn%20of%20The%20Mercian%20-%205th%20November%202019.jpg" />Picture from MODA Reachtimelapse webcam

On the left hand side nearest the camera sits the only patch of land on site yet to see a floor. However, the vultures are quickly closing in.

A new floor is sweeping across from Tennant Street towards Broad Street at a quick rate, and given the frenzied nature of works here, it's only a matter of time before the whole site is officially filled in and 'The Mercian' can rise as one.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/IMG_2191b_MERC.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

As stated in the last update, the main core will feature three public lifts, including a goods lift and a stairwell. This will allow access up to floor 42.

The secondary core, which you can see directly behind the main one, will service up to floor 14.

A real hive of activity at Birmingham's future tallest building - latest gallery update for The Mercian

Post image

A real hive of activity at Birmingham's (soon to be) tallest building. Pouring of concrete continues throughout, new floors are also being prepped, plus a concrete pump now sits tantalisingly close to the main core! Check the link for the latest Mercian update.

A real hive of activity at Birmingham's (soon to be) tallest building. Pouring of concrete continues throughout, new floors are also being prepped, plus a concrete pump now sits tantalisingly close to the main core! Check the link for the latest Mercian update.


The first floor podium has seen a concrete pouring on the Broad Street elevation, with work again commencing on the Tennant Street side. As you can see from the pictures, the podium level almost sits level with the Lee Longlands building next door.

With progress showing zero signs of slowing down, a concrete pump also now sits tantalisingly close to the main core. 

Hopefully not too long until we see this one rise into the Birmingham sky!

The main core will comprise of three lifts, a goods lift, refuse chute and a stairwell. This will provide direct access to floor 42.

A secondary core is also going up, as seen behind the main one. This will provide two additional lifts and provide access up to level 14, where the development will see a shoulder extension.

The Construction of The Mercian, Broad Street - August/September 2019

Post image

It seems a bit like a rocket taking off, slow and struggling up at first, but soon to soar skywards. A massive floor slab is about to be poured and the rest of the lower core is to complete.

The Mercian on Broad Street in Birmingham can now be seen above ground!  We can't wait till it appears on the skyline from further away. Take this update for some great photos.


The Mercian can now be seen rising out of the ground. 

Progress continues at an incredibly fast pace with groundworks rapidly commencing across all parts of the site, with the lift formwork now being constructed.

Given all of this, we can now see the build peek above the hoardings.

A 200-metre running track on a building? Pull the other one!

That's right! A 200-metre outdoor running track, the UK’s first in a residential building, is amongst the many quirky amenities planned for the 42-storey MODA Tower being built on Broad Street in Birmingham.

That's right! A 200-metre outdoor running track, the UK’s first in a residential building, is amongst the many quirky amenities planned for the 42-storey MODA Tower being built on Broad Street in Birmingham.

Stephen Giles, one of Birmingham's 'people with passion' and follower of all things construction asks: Why? 

View post.


It’s all about moving with the times.

Nowadays, the city centre apartment experience is seen as becoming much more about lifestyle, rather than just living space.

It's now about creating a product tailored around lifestyle which in turn focuses heavily on brand and the amenities the building provides.

Moda Group, are a leading rental lifestyle brand and are behind 2one2 Broad Street. Their aim is to create an integrated, sustainable amd diverse community and revolutionise the whole living experience by making it a thoroughly enriched one for its residents.

This makes sense because people, if they can get it, want luxury, ease, comfort and convienence at their disposal.

So, developers, such as Moda, are actively promoting their healthy urban living movement as a way to entice new residents, and with a society fixated with wellness and healthy living, it certainly holds an attractive, long-term appeal for today’s fitness-mad generation.

Artist's impressions by Glenn Howells Architects

Once complete, 42-storey, ‘2one2 Broad Street’, billed as a “vertical village” will contain 481 apartments (from studios to three bedrooms) and will boast an internal environment second to none.

Residents will have access to over 30,000 square foot of communal space in which to socialise and unwind, with 24-hour concierge service, terraces, gym, cycle hub, outdoor BBQ & cinema space, a dining club plus health and wellness zones, where support services are readily available for residents’ physical and emotional wellbeing.

Then there's a 200-metre outdoor running track on the roof of the podium – a UK first in a residential building, and one that should go down a storm with today’s fitness fantatics - all without having to leave the complex.

Artist's impressions by Glenn Howell's Architects

Providing high quality housing with well-designed amenity spaces, from workspace to personal wellbeing, complete with a mix of community and top-notch service certainly offers wide appeal for people seeking a new place to live.

The bar is certainly being raised higher in Birmingham and its residents will soon reap the rewards.
