In brief

49 storeys (155m) in height, Octagon will stand tall and proud as a signpost for the city, making the most of its location on the Birmingham ridge - a line of higher ground that stretches from Snow Hill to Five Ways along Colmore Row and Broad Street.

The BtR (build to rent) build will deliver 370 high-quality spacious one-, two- & three-bedroom apartments in a mixture of 218 one (two persons), 144 two (four persons) & 8 three-bedroom (six persons) units. With 30 affordable units also included, apartment sizes will healthily range from 51.3- 115 sq.m.

Octagon will feature eight identical facades - conveying the purest octagonal form, with the building's frame punctuated by large horizontal windows opening up apartments to panoramic views of the city.

Benefitting from a triple-height glazed base, lower & upper ground will be home to retail, amenity, leisure and residential entrance spaces; the building will also introduce a commercial entrance onto Great Charles Street Queensway.

Amenities include dining/ café, lounge areas, live/work meeting space, and wellness hub/gym supporting opportunities for healthy and active lifestyles.

To further promote sustainable travel, a cycle store will provide c.225 bicycle spaces, along with four accessible parking bays.
