A new addition to the Birmingham Skyline, another success for the UK housing market

A new addition to the Birmingham Skyline, another success for the UK housing market

The deputy leader of Birmingham City Council joined guests at The Bank, a landmark development of apartments owned by real estate investment company Aprirose, to mark the topping out of the second tower at the site.

Cllr Brigid Jones joined the ceremony at The Bank, located between Broad Street and Brindleyplace, where the concrete structure of the second building is now complete and the internal fit out is underway. As part of the event, a time capsule was inserted into the structure of the building, with a number of items, such as clippings from the day’s newspapers and photographs placed inside to mark the occasion. The Bank is being developed by Regal Property Group, constructed by Wates Construction, funded by Aprirose and designed by architect Glancy Nicholls.

“This topping out ceremony is the latest proof that Birmingham is a city quite literally on the up. Our city skyline is being transformed and The Bank is one of the exciting developments helping to make Birmingham an even better place to live, work and invest.” – Deputy Leader of Birmingham City Council, Brigid Jones

The Bank scheme, consists of two residential towers. The first tower comprises 189 studio, one and two-bedroom properties, reaching 22-storeys, and is now 96% sold. The first tower was Aprirose’s first major residential development project in the UK and completed in the summer of 2018. The second tower at The Bank is 33-storeys high and will comprise 217 luxury apartments, including one, two and three-bedroom homes. It will be one of only two residential skyscrapers to measure over 100 metres tall in the city and is expected to complete by the end of 2019.

“As Birmingham continues to thrive as the UK’s second City, schemes such as The Bank are integral to providing quality housing as the business scene continues to bloom and attract talent to the city centre. As The Bank development nears completion we look forward to it becoming not only an iconic addition to the skyline but a part of the fabric of Birmingham. The scheme represents not only a strong investment for Aprirose into a key business destination but a mark of our commitment to Birmingham’s continued growth.” – Manish Gudka, CEO, Aprirose
