Another new block of student flats is set to receive the go ahead from city planning chiefs this week.
The accommodation, in Selly Oak, forms part of the wider regeneration of the former Battery Park site, near Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which will eventually comprise a new Sainsbury's supermarket, petrol station, other retail and commercial space and new public realm.
This latest incarnation will see 418 bedrooms in studios and shared flats built in three blocks, reaching 11, 14 and 18 storeys respectively, next to the Birmingham and Worcester Canal.
The building's length has also been decreased by 12 metres to enable more public realm, a public square has been added and all student accommodation has been removed from level one, leaving the ground and first floors solely for communal and ancillary uses.

City councillors have been recommended to approve the project when they discuss it at this Thursday's planning committee meeting.
The regeneration of the 30-acre Battery Park, one of Birmingham's most stalled projects, is being led by Harvest, a joint venture between Sainsbury's and Land Securities.
The student flats element has been designed by renowned Birmingham practice Glenn Howells Architects.
Since submitting the revised plans earlier this year, Harvest has agreed a deal with specialist operator Unite Students to provide the accommodation.
Last month, Unite Students announced it had purchased land in Birmingham's Gun Quarter to build around 600 new bedrooms, joining its four other existing halls of residence in the city.
