Long-awaited plans for the landmark Three Snowhill building are expected to be given the green light next week.
The scheme, which will complete the Snowhill development triumvirate, will go before Birmingham City Council's planning committee on May 28.
Proposals for 360,000 sq ft of grade A offices over 16 storeys, along with 40,000 sq ft of leisure and retail space, are expected to be given approval.
Agent for developer Ballymore said in the application to the city council: "The proposed development offers a high-quality, office-led scheme within the heart of the city and will assist in the ongoing supply of the very highest quality office accommodation.
"The development continues the quality set by the previous phases of development and provides an appropriate conclusion to the Snow Hill redevelopment.
"I therefore conclude that this application should be supported subject to appropriate safeguarding conditions."
City council officers have advised the scheme should be passed subject to section 106 agreements.
The scheme has been altered from Ballymore's initial plans, which secured permission in July 2007, for a 43-storey residential tower and 23-storey hotel on the site. Construction of this development was suspended in 2010.
However, the resurgence in the city's office market has seen new plans come forward.
The Post understands several global firms have already expressed early interest in taking space on the scheme.
