City's skyscraper theme park plan

A £60m skyscraper with theme park rides and a restaurant at the top could be built in Birmingham.

The 175m (574ft) Birmingham Pinnacle will be built next to Millennium Point, if the city council approves the plans.



Rides include a high level seesaw, a freefall parachute drop, a bungee drop and a 50-passenger gyro ride.

The building would be the Midlands' tallest, the first of its kind in Europe and would resemble the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas.

This needs a big recap.

The tallest regional tower outside London may be in Birmingham aswell with a major mixed-use scheme down Broad Street. Technically it already is in the VTP but most of that is theme-park.

A little. Oklahoma's skyline though is alot more compact which I prefer. It'll take Birmingham a little while to achieve that as the city is quite spread out. The skyline stretched almost 2 miles which is pretty huge considering. The city does have over a dozen planned 100m+ towers but unfortunately due to the credit crunch our new tallest has seized construction for the time being. Podium has been done and the lobby has been completed but now they have switched thier battention to the 2nd 75m tall Office block instead of the twin residential, hotel tower scheme.

While new buildings may be going up, Here is a picture of one coming down, I can confirm that Bayley Tower on the Bromfod Drive in Birmingham, UK is now a pile of rubble.

It wont be long now before Stoneycroft Tower on the Bromford Drive in Birmingham, UK suffers the same fate.

New Birmingham Conservatoire Taking Shape

Quote:
Shuttered earlier this year, Birmingham Conservatoire's Adrian Boult Hall staged a wide variety of musical performances over its 30-year history. The closure of the Birmingham City University facility marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. A brand new £56 million venue is taking shape in the Eastside, representing the United Kingdom's first completely new Conservatoire since 1987.
