WCN Editorial Team 23 Aug 2017 EUROPE BUSINESS

The developer of the £700m Paradise Birmingham scheme is set to showcase the detailed plans for the next office building at a public exhibition next month. 

Plans are afoot to construct the office building as part of the transformational Paradise Birmingham development, spanning over an area of 290,000 sq ft.

Proposal for One Centenary Way building overlooking Centenary Square has been prepared. Designed by Birmingham-based Glenn Howells Architects, the building will also provide space for shops and restaurants on the ground and upper ground levels.

Argent, development manager for the scheme, is gearing up to submit a planning application on behalf of Hermes Investment Management with submission to Birmingham City Council expected later this year.

Argent regional director Rob Grovessaid: "There is significant momentum behind the Paradise scheme and this exhibition will highlight the detailed design of the next building in this transformational development.

"One Centenary Way will be one of the city’s most prominent buildings, overlooking the new upgraded Centenary Square and forming a landmark entrance to the Paradise development."

Currently, work is under progress on One and Two Chamberlain Square at Paradise Birmingham, which will provide 172,000 sq ft and 183,000 sq ft of office space, respectively.

Hermes Investment Management head of private markets Chris Taylor said: "Paradise is one of the key city centre mixed-use developments in the UK outside London and an outstanding example of placemaking.

"Since work began on the first phase of the development in January 2015, we have seen excellent progress, with PwC already secured for the first building, work well under way on the second and plans for the third now being presented.”
