    Birmingham, UK is to feature the country’s biggest tower outside of London, after a new development was approved by the council last week. The building will feature a hotel, serviced apartments and street level shops.The tower is anticipated to be built over three years and will be 56 storeys high. The Regal Tower will be 192 metres tall, taller than Birmingham’s current tallest building, the BT Tower. The new tower will be situated at the corner of Broad Street and Sheepcote Street.

    The project is expected to cost £125m and will be developed by the Regal Property Group, with the architecture undertaken by Aedas architect Steve Hayward.

    The building will feature 289 hotel rooms, 256 serviced apartments including three floors of penthouses at the top of the tower, as well as basement parking and shops along the bottom floor. There will also be a spa, fitness centre and a double height sky bar on the 30th floor.

    It is not the only tower in the city to be given council approval recently, a 51-storey V Building is to be constructed further along Broad Street at the Arena Central site.
