Birmingham City Council’s planning committee has approved the scheme paving the way for construction of the tallest residential tower in the Midlands.
Original plans drew objections from Birmingham Airport chiefs but were amended “to allow for further construction details”.
The £160m scheme includes 667 one and two-bedroom apartments delivered across the main 525ft tower and another 15-storey building.
Features include a gym, yoga room and cinema room, as well as a rooftop dining and bar area in the form of a Sky Lounge.
Anthony McCourt, CEO and founder of Court Collaboration, said: “We’re delighted with the council’s decision to grant planning permission for One Eastside and we hope to be able to confirm a start on site date in the near future.
“Birmingham is going through some incredibly exciting changes and this ambitious scheme will keep Court Collaboration at the very forefront of modern city living, sustainable design and innovative construction.”
