Proposals to build the tallest residential tower in Birmingham – and the fourth largest building in the UK outside London – have been submitted to Birmingham City Council for planning permission.

2one2 Broad Street is a 42-storey development on the site of the former Tramps nightclub.

At 132 metres, it would be smaller than only Birmingham’s BT Tower, Beetham Tower in Manchester and West Tower in Liverpool, outside London.

The £183m development, which will have 481 apartments, is planned to be part of the “Ridge”, the city’s designated tall building zone.

If approved, work is expected to start on site in the second quarter of next year and take three years to build.

Tony Brooks, managing director at Moda Living, said: “Birmingham is a fantastic city and our fully managed building will meet the burgeoning demand for quality accommodation.

“The Moda Living model of single landlord ownership and taking a 360-degree lifestyle approach – covering everything from work to working out – will help meet this shortfall while also raising the bar in the local rental market.”

Moda Living is a joint venture between Yorkshire-based developers Caddick and Generate Land. It has teamed up with Apache Capital Partners to invest £1.5bn in building around 6,000 units in prime sites in UK cities.

Its Birmingham development has been designed by architects Glenn Howell and will include a 200-metre outdoor running circuit on the roof.

There will be 35,000 sq ft of mixed commercial, retail and leisure space will be provided in a three-storey podium.
