Birmingham - New Space Age Design For 574ft Theme Park

Construction due middle 2007. New designs just been released on the front of Birmingham post. I shall post them later.

It could potentially have the highest restaurant in Europe. Its pure 175m of glass with a torquoise and minimilistic pink colour cladding, yet see through all the way to the top. The lifts will be placed on the outside of the tower so vistors will get a birdseye view of Birmingham and its skyline. The top is lit up and has a rather large plasma rolling screen roll around the top of the tower indicating the time and date. One ride is placed on top of the restaurant and is illuminated in normal lighting, This doesnt seem much but the effect it will have will be superb. Its a rotating cart ride which will give the indication of a halo on the tower.

Birmingham city council have worked with ROC International and SMC Hickton Medley have designed the £60m tower.
