Donnington House

Donnington House was an 8 storey tower block on the Meadway estate in East Birmingham. The block was approved as part of Phase 1 for the estate in 1955 and was completed in 1959 by Wimpey using the no fines concrete method. The block slowly declined into a troublespot. Central heating was installed in the 1980s, but it remained inadequate for modern life with no provisional space made for modern furniture. High levels of anti-social behaviour reported.

In 2007, Birmingham City Council approved plans to demolished the estate, and the block was demolished in 2008.
