The Mercian has grown and risen changing Birmingham’s skyline – the tallest residential tower in the city! Nothing was going to stop us from celebrating once we reached 42 storeys, we just did it a little differently…

Designed by Birmingham-based Glenn Howells Architects, The Mercian provides 481 homes with top quality service and amenities. A building of the future with with a focus on fitness and musical heritage. We’re pushing the boundaries of city living.

Tony Brooks, our MD said: “Marking this milestone at The Mercian is testament to the fantastic teams that are part of the DNA at Moda and Sisk, who have worked tirelessly, and always with our workers safety at the forefront to keep the site open and on track, even during uncertain times. It’s been exciting to see the building take shape and become a landmark on Birmingham’s skyline. It reflects the ambition and resilience we have come to expect from the people of this city, and we can’t wait to open the doors to Birmingham’s first Next Generation Neighbourhood.”

We grabbed our hard hats and ‘virtually’ passed it on all the way from our HQ in Harrogate to the official topping out at Moda, The Mercian, where the final pour took place. Sound on and press play to watch the hat throwing skills in our own ‘Pass it On’ challenge. Guaranteed to make you smile…
