Holte & Priory Estate Tower Blocks-0

Holte & Priory estate being constructed in Nechells, Aston.

Murdoch Point was a 12 storey block of flats on the Holte & Priory Estate off Aston Hall Road, in the Nechells area of Aston, Birmingham.

The block was a brick construction, using a similar model to flats such as Home Tower, but this time using a 'y' shaped footprint. It was one of 7 tower blocks situated next to the Aston Expressway and one of 67 towers in Aston.

The block was 36 metres tall and completed in 1956, situated alongside 3 sister blocks (James Watt Point, Priestley Point and Boulton Point) on the estate in the shadow of 'Spaghetti Junction'. Also nearby were the 3 massive cooling towers of Nechells Power Station, which were detonated to make way for the Star City entertainment complex in the late 1990s.

It was demolished in 2001.
