Left Bank 1 is 22-storeys high with 189 one and two-bedroom apartments with shops, cafés or restaurants on the ground floor.The taller of the two towers is to be expected to be an 18-storey Innside hotel, again with retail, leisure and a restaurant. A car park behind Big Bite takeaway near Brindleyplace is to be the site of the new scheme. Earlier plans for the site included a proposal to build the 658ft, 56-storey skyscaper, Regal Tower, which would have been the city's tallest building. Designed by local firm Glancy Nicholls Architects for local developer Regal Property Group, the 22-storey, 189-unit residential tower will include ground-floor retail and will share a public realm outdoor element with the adjacent hotel. The two-phase development will occupy the back lot of an historic Georgian-Era building (currently a fast food restaurant), and is located in close proximity to the city centre. A two-stage tender project to build two towers, one 22 storeys and the other 31, but with further capacity to extend with 2 and 4 storeys of penthouses respectively. Located at the top end of Broad St behind an existing listed building the towers are being constructed on a busy compact city site and are intended to provide apartments, with retail on the ground floor. Unique Factors: The RC frames are being slip cored with the floor plates all post tension prestressed concrete supported offblade columns. The pile foundations extend into the Sandstone bedrock which is generally solid but there were variances noted that required a further detailed site investigation to understand the nature of identified water features found.
