Moda submits plans for 42-storey Birmingham tower

Developer Moda Living has put forward plans for a 42-storey tower that will be Birmingham’s tallest residential building.

The company submitted a planning application to Birmingham Council for the £183m development on Broad Street in the city centre.

Designed by architects Glenn Howell, the scheme will include a total of 481 apartments for private rent, alongside 30,000 sq ft of communal space and 35,000 sq ft of commercial, retail and leisure units housed in the building’s three-storey podium.

The podium will also feature a running track on its roof as part of the development’s leisure facilities for residents.

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

“The Moda Living model […] will help meet this shortfall while also raising the bar in the local rental market.”

The project is the latest in a series of major developments planned or started by Moda in the past 12 months.

The developer has already started on site on its £153m Angel Gardens residential tower in Manchester, with Carillion serving as main contractor.

Moda will also manage two 16-storey residential towers in Leeds as part of Caddick Developments’ £300m SOYO project.
