Colmore Row, Birmingham

Birmingham’s NatWest Tower, Colmore Row will be replaced with a new £60m 26-storey landmark building being developed by GIA’s client Sterling Property Ventures in partnership with Rockspring. At 346ft high and with the apex to stand 807ft above sea level, the new tower will be the tallest office building under construction in the UK outside London. Designed by Doone Silver Architects, it will comprise 200,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over 19 floors with floorplates of up to 12,000 sq ft. At street level, plans include a winter garden, a café facing Colmore Row and a retail unit fronting Newhall Street. At the top of the building there is provision for a 8,600 sq ft restaurant with a 3,250 sq ft ‘lantern’ space offering 360-degree views of the city. GIA advise on daylight and sunlight matters.
