Other facilities for residents will include a hotelstyle lobby staffed by a 24-hour concierge service, gym, free wi-fi, dining club with demonstration kitchen, public space and eating areas. There will also be 35,000 sq ft of mixed commercial, retail and leisure space within the three-storey section. The building will sit opposite another residential project, The Brooks Bank, which is due to have 394 apartments across two buildings.

Earlier this year, Moda Living's planning director James Blakey said the company was likely to open a second or even a third of its developments in Birmingham. Managing director Tony Brooks said: "Birmingham is a fantastic city and our fully-managed building will meet the burgeoning demand for quality accommodation.

"The Moda Living model of single landlord ownership and taking a 360-degree lifestyle approach, covering everything from work to working out, will help meet this shortfall while also raising the bar in the local rental market."

Apache Capital Partners is funding the project and Birmingham practice Glenn Howells Architects has designed it. Assuming permission is granted this year, work is due to start next year.
