Methodist Central Hall, Corporation Street, Birmingham - Birmingham

A substantial building constructed in 1903-4 by E and JA Harper in red brick and terracotta. The ground floor is in various retail uses, some vacant, the upper floors are vacant. Planning approval and Listed Building Consent was previously granted for conversion to mixed office/residential use, but this was not implemented and has now expired. Birmingham City Council negotiated with the owner to undo unauthorised works, but the building continues to deteriorate with extensive vegetation at upper levels. Planning perrmission was granted in 2018 for a hotel and apart-hotel use.
