WH Smith - Alpha Tower

There is now a WH Smith at the bottom of the Alpha Tower.

  

Below is info from Wikimapia:

 

The Alpha Tower is a commercial building in Birmingham, England. It stands 100 metres 28 floors and was constructed from 1969 to 1973. It was built to a design by George Marsh of Richard Seifert and Partners as the headquarters of ATV. Now operated by the developers GVA Grimley, it is a landmark and a Grade A locally listed building. It was nominated for listed building status by the Twentieth Century Society in 2002 and the owners also applied for a Certificate of Immunity. An adjacent shorter tower was planned but was never built. The location of that unbuilt tower is now the location of the 147-metre V Building.

 

The Alpha Tower in Birmingham is locally listed as Grade A.
