Tower block with cranes, Birmingham
The very extensive regeneration in Birmingham city centre continues. This tower with cranes is in Newhall Street, and is seen with telephoto assistance from Town Hall tram stop (about 225 metres).

The new skyscraper will be Birmingham's tallest office block, and is expected to be complete during 2020. It has been designed to replace John Madinís NatWest Tower which was demolished between 2015-17. When completed, the 26 storey tower will be 346 feet (just over 105 metres) high.
