A new landmark tower in Birmingham

Doone Silver’s design for a new landmark tower in Birmingham for Sterling Property Ventures and Rockspring has been unveiled.

103 Colmore Row will be a distinctive 211,000 sq ft structure, replacing the former 1970s NatWest Tower. At 26 storeys and 336ft/102.5m high, it will be the tallest building in Birmingham’s central business district.

Comprising 196,000 sq ft of office space over 19 floors, and with floorplates of up to 11,500 sq ft, the scheme will also feature a terrace on the 18th level, for the exclusive use of the occupier. The building is capable of accommodating around 2,000 workers.

The project also includes 15,000 sq ft of leisure space. At street level, plans include a winter garden and café facing Colmore Row and a restaurant/bar along the Newhall Street façade. There is provision for a 8,600 sq ft restaurant at the top of the building, to include a 2,900 sq ft ‘lantern’ space offering 360 degree views across the city.
