Plans for the first building in a £400m Birmingham city centre development have been submitted.

Arena Central is an area near Broad Street and Centenary Square earmarked for development by Birmingham City Council.

The planned building - 1 Arena Central - will be an eight-storey office and retail complex.

Planning permission has already been granted to develop 9.2 acres of land around the new Library of Birmingham.

Council leader Sir Albert Bore said the development would help Birmingham to "meet the growing demand for office space in the city".
