A renaissance in Broad Street continues after a new image of the scheme on the Regal Tower site was unveiled.

The computer-generated image obtained by the Post shows two towering buildings – an Innside hotel and an apartment block – on land off Broad Street.

The scheme will stand on the plot where Birmingham’s tallest building – the £125 million Regal Tower – was previously planned before it was scrapped during the recession.

The latest scheme, called Left Bank and put forward by Regal Property Group, has been scaled down with a 22-storey apartment block and a 18-storey hotel.

It comes on a big week for Broad Street after the Post unveiled new plans for Two Arena Central and some redevelopment at Alpha Tower .

The Regal scheme will be built on the site of a car park on land between Sheepcote Street and Oozells Way and involve the part demolition of the Grade II listed building at 78-79 Broad Street which currently houses the ‘Big Bite’ takeaway.

The plot was once home to a Jewish synagogue from the 1960s until it was relocated in 2008 and Regal Property Group has been eyeing the site for redevelopment for more than a decade.

A spokesperson for the scheme said: “The elegant and functional Innside by Meliá hotels are perfectly adapted to the needs of modern city visitors, offering a combination of business lifestyle, cutting-edge design and personalised, simple and efficient service.

“The Innside Birmingham hotel will also feature flexible meeting and event space with innovative technology, a restaurant and a lobby bar which is the energy centre of Innside by Meliá hotels and the place where everything happens.”
