Birmingham site bought for regeneration

September 16, 2018 by  

A section of Birmingham located close to the city centre containing listed buildings has been bought by a developer and is set to undergo regeneration.

The Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham features six buildings and two of them date back to the 1830s and hold grade II listed status. The site has been bought by the London Development Group, in what represents the first time that it has invested in the region and it now has plans to restore the buildings to former glories.

Among the ideas that it has for the Caroline Street site is to bring sections of it that have never been used before into play, as well as expanding the inner area to 40,000 sq. ft.

In addition to the restoration of the historic buildings, other potential elements of this regeneration are new housing, office space and high quality eateries. Speaking to Insider Media, the firm’s chief executive, Daniel Obertelli, stated:

“We are looking forward to working with Birmingham City Council, Historic England as well as our neighbours and local community groups to develop proposals which will enrich the area.”

He went on to add that they would take great care to ensure that the work did not affect the character of the area.

Developers often turn to local printers to help provide brochures to showcase their projects to the public.
