Irish construction group John Sisk & Son has been appointed to build a new £184 million 42-storey apartment block in Birmingham.

The company has won the contract from developer Moda Living which is behind the plan to build 2one2 Broad Street which will have 481 apartments to rent and a 200-metre running track on a third floor platform.

The building will have units ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, communal space including residents' lounge, gym, dining club with a demonstration kitchen and 24-hour concierge service.

Enabling works have already started on what will be Birmingham's tallest residential tower when it completes in 2022.

The project, which was awarded the green light by city planning chiefs in December 2017, will transform the derelict site which was once home to nightclub Tramps.

Tony Brooks, managing director at Moda Living, said: "Birmingham is a key city for Moda - as the UK's fastest growing regional city and the number one city to relocate to from London.

"Our aim is to provide high-quality housing to match the city's ambition and growth.

"Not only will this be a landmark building, it will also help raise the bar for rental in the city, offering unrivalled amenities and putting residents in control.

"As a long-term partner to the city, it's our responsibility to create social, healthy and connected communities."

 

Guy Fowler, regional managing director at John Sisk & Son, added: "We are delighted to have been appointed by Moda to deliver this landmark scheme in the heart of Birmingham.

"We look forward to working in partnership with all our stakeholders and in particular the local community to create a lasting legacy."

Harrogate-based Moda Living is backed by Apache Capital Partners and has £2 billion worth of development in the pipeline across ten UK cities.
