    Description
    One of the tallest buildings in Birmingham the Alpha Tower has 28 floors and stands at 328 feet. A prominent landmark it resembles the Pirelli Building in Milan. This particular building is a smaller version by architect Richard Seiffert. Now looking somewhat outdated and on its own amongst the more modern and tasteful Architecture of Brindleyplace it nevertheless is an impressive building. Alpha Tower is situated in Suffolk Street, near Broad Street and not far from the Mailbox. Birmingham has the annual attraction of a beach area situated by the central Library - this image also shows Birmingham's Alpha Tower in the distance
