49-Storey Octagon residential tower by Argent has obtained planning approval in the United Kingdom.

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

Argent, a UK-based property developer, has received planning permission for the Octagon residential tower at the Paradise redevelopment project in Birmingham, UK, from Birmingham City Council. The Octagon residential tower is the most recent phase of the Paradise redevelopment project, which is being carried out by Paradise Circus Limited Partnership (PCLP), a public-private partnership with Birmingham City Council.


Up to 370 new build to rent (BtR) residences will be available in the new 155m tall 49-story residential skyscraper, which will be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bed houses, including affordable homes. At the entrance level, there will be communal space and resident facilities. The tower will also create a new landmark for the city.


Glenn Howells Architects received planning permission for the new residential tower after the first phase of the Paradise development, which included One Chamberlain Square and Two Chamberlain, as well as a new public realm across the estate, including Chamberlain Square, was completed.


One Centenary Way, a new 13-story, 280,000 square-foot structure, is billed as Paradise's next commercial building and the first phase of the development's second phase, which is now under construction. Three Chamberlain Square, the other building, is currently undergoing a comprehensive design competition, with a planning application scheduled to be presented later this year.


Dav Bansal, partner at Glenn Howells Architects, said: "We are hugely excited about delivering Octagon and what this could mean for Birmingham as a truly distinct landmark on the city's skyline.
