In brief

Construction of Octagon, the world’s tallest pure octagonal skyscraper.

49 storeys (155m) in height, the BTR tower will stand tall and proud as a signpost for the city, making the most of its location on the Birmingham ridge - a line of higher ground that stretches from Snow Hill to Five Ways along Colmore Row and Broad Street.

There will be a diverse mix of accommodation, with 370 high-quality one-, two- & three-bedroom apartments (51.3- 115sqm; 2-6 persons), including 30 affordable units, communal spaces, concierge and resident amenities at lower & upper ground floor level.

Benefitting from a triple-height glazed base, these amenities will be home to dining/ café, lounge areas, live/work space, and wellness hub/gym that supports opportunities for healthy and active lifestyles.

Featuring eight identical facades - conveying the purest octagonal form, Octagon’s building frame will be punctuated by large horizontal windows opening up apartments to panoramic views of the city.

To further promote sustainable travel, a cycle store will provide c.225 bicycle spaces, along with four accessible parking bays.

As part of the JRL Group, Midgard provides a full turnkey service – as seen below – and will manage all contractors from the beginning of the construction process to its 2025 completion.
