Hello

This site is easily one of the best we've been into. It is a 24 storey high office block in Birmingham. Getting in is always a challenge as the site is alarmed and next to many active buildings but with some acquitted climbing skills you can get in quite easily.
So we've visited the site quite a few times and it is becoming more well known now so more vandals are getting in and destroying the place which is a shame but some floors still remain untouched. The site is heavily guarded with motions senors and cameras. We've had dogs and police come to the site once before but we got out fine they weren't too pissed off with us.
The roof offers an amazing view of Birmingham and is a good spot to catch a sun rise or sun set from.
Here is some info from the Wiki,

Five Ways Tower is a 23-storey commercial building on a 2.1-acre (8,500 m2) prime site located in the Birmingham City Centre by the corner of Frederick Road and Islington Road, near to the Five Ways roundabout and close to Five Ways Station, at the gateway to the Edgbaston area of Birmingham 15, England.
The building was completed in 1979.
Several hotels expressed interest in acquiring the building from its owners, since its solid concrete design could be converted into a business class hotel.
The building is vacant due to the last tenants evacuating the building due to ill health amongst the workforce. It turned out that the building suffers from Sick Building Syndrome, and being expensive to refurbish to modern standards a likely option is demolition in line with the regeneration of the surrounding area.
Anyway here are some photos which are on our instagram (@urban_midlands) and some ones we didn't post, they aren't the best but they'll do for now

I was there, but only on the car park. Couldn't find a way up.

I lost my phone on the lowest level of the car park. More or less exactly here 52.471614, -1.915831 . High reward for finding it and letting me know. Black Samsung in black rubber cover.

We'll have a look next time we go down but if you've no luck then I'd contact 5 ways house who sometimes patrol the site so they might have taken it.

Is this location accessible and is there police and security patrols still as this is on my list but have been put off by security and police presence and the fact that I’ve been told that it’s not good to go to at the moment

Went last night, spent about 30 minutes walking around the site and either I'm completely blind or stupid we couldn't find any way in at all

We did go there at about 2am to be fair, there was nothing open at all. The only way we could see was round the side that involved climbing up some spikes and over the spiked fence that looked very difficult to get back over.
Ah fair enough I’ll try soon
