The Birmingham Post and Mail Building was one of the first glass slab International blocks built in the United Kingdom and initially considered an architectural triumph. The tower was designed to be distinct from the printwork podium it stood over.
With an aluminium framed tower, much of the building had an extravagant finish that featured black Argentine granite and white Sicilian marble.
By the start of the 21st century the building was tired on the outside, in need of internal renovation, and lay on a prime development area but attempts at listing it were refused and demolition was done in 2005.
