The Construction of The Mercian, Broad Street - January 2019

Here's the latest construction photo gallery for the 42 storey, The Mercian, on Broad Street. 

Most of the lower section is structurally complete with the cores still rising and the main tower structure has moved on to the main floors. It is starting to impose itself on the scene and it won't be long before itstarts to compete with Bank Tower Two opposite.

Take our post for an early November update of the construction work at The Mercian including some great photography. 


Both cores have risen considerably since the last update, with the main core now sitting pretty at level 4. Just a mere 38 to go!

The pumping of concrete continues, as does the construction of new floors, as seen below.

Picture from MODA Reachtimelapse webcam

On the left hand side nearest the camera sits the only patch of land on site yet to see a floor. However, the vultures are quickly closing in.

A new floor is sweeping across from Tennant Street towards Broad Street at a quick rate, and given the frenzied nature of works here, it's only a matter of time before the whole site is officially filled in and 'The Mercian' can rise as one.

As stated in the last update, the main core will feature three public lifts, including a goods lift and a stairwell. This will allow access up to floor 42.

The secondary core, which you can see directly behind the main one, will service up to floor 14.

A real hive of activity at Birmingham's future tallest building - latest gallery update for The Mercian

A real hive of activity at Birmingham's (soon to be) tallest building. Pouring of concrete continues throughout, new floors are also being prepped, plus a concrete pump now sits tantalisingly close to the main core! Check the link for the latest Mercian update.

The first floor podium has seen a concrete pouring on the Broad Street elevation, with work again commencing on the Tennant Street side. As you can see from the pictures, the podium level almost sits level with the Lee Longlands building next door.

With progress showing zero signs of slowing down, a concrete pump also now sits tantalisingly close to the main core. 

Hopefully not too long until we see this one rise into the Birmingham sky!

The main core will comprise of three lifts, a goods lift, refuse chute and a stairwell. This will provide direct access to floor 42.

A secondary core is also going up, as seen behind the main one. This will provide two additional lifts and provide access up to level 14, where the development will see a shoulder extension.

It seems a bit like a rocket taking off, slow and struggling up at first, but soon to soar skywards. A massive floor slab is about to be poured and the rest of the lower core is to complete.

The Mercian can now be seen rising out of the ground. 

Progress continues at an incredibly fast pace with groundworks rapidly commencing across all parts of the site, with the lift formwork now being constructed.

Given all of this, we can now see the build peek above the hoardings.

Did you know?

A 200-metre running track on a building? Pull the other one!

That's right! A 200-metre outdoor running track, the UK’s first in a residential building, is amongst the many quirky amenities planned for the 42-storey MODA Tower being built on Broad Street in Birmingham.

Stephen Giles, one of Birmingham's 'people with passion' and follower of all things construction asks: Why?

Stephen Giles, one of Birmingham's 'people with passion' and follower of all things construction asks: Why? 

View post.


It’s all about moving with the times.

Nowadays, the city centre apartment experience is seen as becoming much more about lifestyle, rather than just living space.

It's now about creating a product tailored around lifestyle which in turn focuses heavily on brand and the amenities the building provides.

Moda Group, are a leading rental lifestyle brand and are behind 2one2 Broad Street. Their aim is to create an integrated, sustainable amd diverse community and revolutionise the whole living experience by making it a thoroughly enriched one for its residents.

This makes sense because people, if they can get it, want luxury, ease, comfort and convienence at their disposal.

So, developers, such as Moda, are actively promoting their healthy urban living movement as a way to entice new residents, and with a society fixated with wellness and healthy living, it certainly holds an attractive, long-term appeal for today’s fitness-mad generation.

Artist's impressions by Glenn Howells Architects

Once complete, 42-storey, ‘2one2 Broad Street’, billed as a “vertical village” will contain 481 apartments (from studios to three bedrooms) and will boast an internal environment second to none.

Residents will have access to over 30,000 square foot of communal space in which to socialise and unwind, with 24-hour concierge service, terraces, gym, cycle hub, outdoor BBQ & cinema space, a dining club plus health and wellness zones, where support services are readily available for residents’ physical and emotional wellbeing.

Then there's a 200-metre outdoor running track on the roof of the podium – a UK first in a residential building, and one that should go down a storm with today’s fitness fantatics - all without having to leave the complex.

Artist's impressions by Glenn Howell's Architects

Providing high quality housing with well-designed amenity spaces, from workspace to personal wellbeing, complete with a mix of community and top-notch service certainly offers wide appeal for people seeking a new place to live.

The bar is certainly being raised higher in Birmingham and its residents will soon reap the rewards.
