A project to build an apartment block on a car park near Broad Street - which has already been scaled back and then dismissed by councillors - is back with planners once again.
Romar Investments wants to construct up to 40 flats on its pay and display car park in Tennant Street but its outline application - which is only to determine access - was thrown out by city councillors because the wider vision contained no parking spaces for cars.
The developer has now come back with a revised proposal which would see the six-storey project contain 13 parking spaces.
The outline application is due to be debated by members of Birmingham City Council's planning committee when it meets on Thursday and officers have recommended it for approval.
A full application, to determine the scale, appearance, layout and landscaping of the overall development, will be lodged in due course.
The final project, which is on land next to the 12-storey Trident House (above), is also likely to have two retail units on the ground floor and parking for bikes.
In May, the Post reported that Romar Investments was hoping to build more than 100 one- and two-bedroom flats over 12 storeys on the Tennant Street site, fuelled in part by its proximity to the Arena Central project which already has HSBC UK as a confirmed future occupant.
Following meetings during the summer between Romar Investments and the city council, the proposals were scaled back significantly to around 40 apartments as planning officers had expressed concerns the original idea would "adversely effect the character of Tennant Street".
The outline application was then thrown out by councillors at the end of October because of the loss of a car park, prompting this latest revision.
A report prepared ahead of Thursday's planning meeting said: "The applicant has revised the current plans to provide a total of 13 parking spaces.
"The overall total number of apartments would only be determined at the reserved matters stage. There could, however, be 40 apartments equating to a provision of 32.5 per cent.
"It is considered this is a reasonable response to members' concerns."
