Birmingham's ever changing and growing skyline

With the help of our community we continue to build and grow our feature on Birmingham's ever changing skyline. Enjoy our feature!


Birmingham's skyline is constantly changing due to the growth and regeneration of this wonderful city. At Birmingham We Are we have a wonderful growing catalogue of amazing photography, provided by Birmingham's "people with passion".

Here's a small selection that go back over 10 years to show how things have changed.  This feature contains more great photography, maps of the city's architecture, tours and articles from our community of city watchers.

To start, let's take a look at the City as seen from Frankley.  With prominent builds such as 103 Colmore Row, Bank Tower Two and The Mercian, just look at how the skyline has changed between 2016 and 2020.
