Birmingham's new landmark tops 150m

Birmingham is to get a new landmark after a new 150m tower was given the go ahead by local planners last week.
The 50 storey V Building on Broad Street will be the tallest in Birmingham and be built adjacent to the 27 storey Alpha Tower, one of the city's existing tallest landmarks. The name is derived from the elongated V which has been designed into its external elevations, culminating in a scissor-like roof.

Arup is the engineer on the predominantly residential project.
