Paradise Birmingham office planning applications submitted

Posted on by

PLANNING application for two major new office buildings have been submitted to the city council.

The proposals for One and Two Chamberlain Square form part of the huge £500 million mixed use redevelopment of the old central library site.

The scheme, labelled Paradise, will see up to ten high quality new buildings with retail & leisure, Grade A offices and a four star hotel.

Eric Parry Architects have designed the 172,000 sq ft One Chamberlain Square -a seven storey building with elegant curved facade and a large roof terrace.

Glenn Howells Architects are behind seven storey Two Chamberlain Square which provides 182,000 sq ft of Grade A office space. The building will have an “elegant five storey portico” that “reflects a contemporary interpretation of the historic setting of the building which fronts onto Chamberlain Square and then steps back from the sixth floor with a roof terrace.”

Senior projects director of Argent, Rob Groves said: “These submissions are an important milestone for the Paradise redevelopment. We have been working together with the design teams, stakeholders and the Planners to ensure that the modern architectural language for the buildings complements the sensitive heritage setting and Chamberlain Square itself, creating great public realm and public space whilst also providing the very best office space.

“We believe that our proposals will deliver two exceptional buildings in a remarkable setting to set the scene for the transformation of the heart of the city.”

If planning permission is granted by local planners, it is expected that work on the new office buildings could begin this Autumn.
