Work on two of Birmingham's largest regeneration schemes in decades is progressing well.
New images, in the gallery above, show diggers making short work of the former Central TV studios on the Arena Central site between Broad Street and Holliday Street.
The £400 million, 9.2-acre project will eventually house office buildings, apartments, retail units, public realm and a Holiday Inn Express hotel.
Planning permission was granted last summer for One Arena Central while applications for buildings Two, Four and Five are currently with the council.
Just over the road, distinctive black hoardings surround Central Library as strip out work continues in preparation for its demolition.
The former library, designed by John Madin and opened in 1974, is due to be demolished by this autumn as part of the £500 million, 11-year Paradise project.
The 17-acre development will eventually comprise eight, grade A office buildings, a 'Millennium' hotel, public realm and a new road system around the Paradise Circus island.
