New images have been revealed showing how the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham will look.
The CGIs form part of new plans which have just been lodged following last month's public consultation.
The three-storey college will be built on land off Lister Street on Birmingham Science Park Aston next to the Digbeth Branch Canal and will involve some demolition of existing buildings.
Totalling 61,350 sq ft, the complex will contain workshops, classrooms, a café and office space alongside a car park and external teaching area containing railway tracks, masts and social space next to the canal.
The designs (see gallery above) have been prepared by Sheffield-based architecture firm Bond Bryan to support the application made by Birmingham City Council which owns the science park.
A decision on the planning application is expected in the spring and the college is due to be completed in time for the 2017/18 academic year.
A second site will also be built in Doncaster.
