Alpha Tower

Location: Birmingham, England
Architect: George Marsh of Richard Seifert & Partners
Completed: 1973
Status: Grade II Listed
Brief Overview: Alpha Tower was originally designed and built as the headquarters of the commercial television company ATV (Associated Television).  Following ATVs closure in 1982, Alpha Tower became offices- and was where Birmingham City Council were located until 2010.   Alpha Tower also featured in Cliff Richards 'Take Me High' film in 1974.  A great quote from English Heritage explains Alpha Towers importance to Birmingham;

'The building is one of the most aesthetically successful office buildings in Birmingham with a shaped outline and careful detailing giving it a dynamic forcefulness. Its design successfully combined several ideas into a powerful and elegant building which soon became, and has continued to be, one of the most popular landmarks of the rebuilding of Birmingham city centre in the mid 20th century.'
