Designs for south Birmingham’s regeneration revealed

December 26, 2018 by  

Plans for the transformation of a southern district of Birmingham were released earlier in the month.

The submitted proposals relate to a space to the south of Birmingham’s city centre. Edgbaston’s New Garden Square may receive an investment of £300 million if the initiative goes ahead.

Property group Calthorpe Estates has taken the lead with the development. A total of 400 apartments could be constructed on the land under discussion. The housing might be complemented by office solutions and public space. This regeneration scheme may have a big impact on the Hagley Road area. Graphic design can be used as part of the planning process by many construction and development firms.

Other regeneration experts are involved in the process, including Birmingham-based Glenn Howells Architects. Paul Patenall is playing a role on behalf of U + I, an international provider of mixed-use regeneration solutions. Patenall, a director of projects, told the Birmingham Mail:

“Our plans are for a commercial-led, mixed-use development, which will provide approximately 500,000 sq. ft. of grade A office space. This will extend the city core and create a new business destination which will attract significant investment and generate jobs.”

Meanwhile, Ralph Minott, a director for Calthorpe Estates, is satisfied with the progress that has been attained so far. He stated that the process of bidding has gone well in relation to the residential aspect of the vision. Some necessary demolition work has been completed.
