A new image showing how Chamberlain Square could look as part of the £500 million Paradise development has been released today.
The CGI (above) shows the two new buildings planned for the square along with public realm.
One Chamberlain Square, which has been designed by London-based Eric Parry Architects, will sit on the plot to be vacated by Central Library once demolition is completed later this year.
Directly opposite will be Two Chamberlain Square, created by Birmingham practice Glenn Howells Architects which also created the overall masterplan for Paradise.
Collectively, the buildings will have 330,000 sq ft of speculative office space and are due to be finished in 2018. This CGI below is an earlier version.
A public consultation on the designs will be held after Easter following which detailed planning applications will be submitted.
This first phase of redevelopment also includes the re-routing of traffic flow around what is currently Paradise Circus island.
The new image has been unveiled today by the Birmingham team currently in Cannes at international property conference MIPIM.
The development is expected to take 11 years to complete and will eventually see eight grade A office buildings and a new hotel constructed.
