Multi-storey car park with space for 975 vehicles on seven floors

Constructed adjacent to Millennium Point the car park frees up space for the creation of Eastside City Park and sits within the wider Birmingham’s Big City Plan.

The facade is clad with multi-faceted panels, which have been used to form a 3-D geometric layout. Light blue acrylic light boxes break up the silver coloured aluminium facade and allow light to pass into the car park.
