  1. 103 Colmore Row Restaurants, Birmingham

    Comments Off on 103 Colmore Row Restaurants, Birmingham

    A new sophisticated restaurant is planned for Birmingham, located on the 24th floor of the proposed new office tower at 103 Colmore Row.

    The 325 square metre, 175 seat, high quality restaurant & bar benefits from superb views of the city, providing customers with an ever changing panorama throughout the day and into the night.

    The restaurant also enjoys an 8 metre high ceiling, creating a glowing lantern in the Birmingham skyline and adding a new landmark in the city.

    The interior is luxuriously finished throughout, including richly veined black marble floors, curving ribbed leather banquettes, dark mocca timber and a feature artwork enclosing the lifts.

    The restaurant is reached via its own dedicated lift from ground level, where a 125 square metre, 50 seat café & bar is situated, providing a more informal place to meet during the day, becoming a vibrant and exciting bar in the evening.

    We are working with Sterling Property Ventures and Milton Keynes Development Partnership to create a landmark mixed use development on the key B 3.3N site, situated on Midsummer Boulevard.

    A tall building will provide essential ‘grade A’ office space.  Located at the top of the building, a restaurant and public viewing gallery will offer unique views that reveal and celebrate the iconic gridded layout of Milton Keynes.  A second high quality private rented sector building will also benefit from views across the city.  The two buildings are separated by a public route connecting Midsummer Boulevard through to Grafton Park, which will be animated by active retail uses at ground floor level.  Located less than 5 minutes’ walk from the west coast mainline railway station, the project will create a sustainable and vibrant live-work hub for the city.

    A new 26 storey office building located in Birmingham’s central business district along its most aspirational address, Colmore Row.

    Plans include a street level winter garden and café along with a restaurant at the top of the building, offering 360 degree views across the city.

    Outer screens of silver vertical blades will add interest to the façade, reflecting the light as it changes throughout the day and lending the building a vibrant quality.

    The project is due to complete in 2019.
