Concept design...



Quote:
Five hundred new Birmingham city centre apartments are to built in a £100 million project following a deal by a London-based property group.

Camborne Land Investments (CLI) has acquired a site off the A38 Bristol Street to develop a new build-to-rent complex from Benacre Properties - the firm behind several student projects in Birmingham.
...

Birmingham-based Glenn Howells Architects is working on concept designs for the scheme.

This is good news. Concept design looks great... look forward to more detailed plans... certainly is a lot of apartments here. Really like the way the gay Quarter is developing, good density and nice designs. Would love to see developments like this... iland, southside, madison etc continue to out towards Bristol St, Sherlock St. Could end up being a fab little neighbourhood.... just as long as it doesn't push the bars and clubs out.

This came out of the blue. £100 million is no mean figure.
So essentially we're going to get a really intensive residential development between Madison House and Bromsgrove Street, with the Armouries and Unity House virtually next door too.
Then we have Monaco House and St Lukes to follow. This could transform this area beyond recognition.
With this amount of residential coming on stream here and through Smithfield, Connaught Square and up the entire length of Bradford Street, there really needs to be a push by the new city mayor to expand the metro comprehensively!

Are we confident that this Camborne Land Investments are genuinely interested in building here or are they another landbanking firm?


Major apologies for bumping the thread folks. I know that 'gutted' feeling.

Not that we don't already know but the owner is busy doing things and employing people which is a good sign

Indicative image(s). Not my picture. Turley haven't posted anything substantial as of yet. You may need to zoom in on this. You can see the relationship between what looks like Bromsgrove House (on the left on the easel) with the site in Q on the right

Ha yes indeed depends on the rest of the construction. But yes would prefer to see use of a full brick outer layer. Not sure what the split is with these types of builds, for example I saw that the new one going up at Park Central is a genuine full brick laid wall on the outer layer which makes me happy. Will await further details on this one...

Pity. I would like to have gone to this consultation but I didn't know it was on. Did anybody actually go? I'm looking forward to seeing some details on this.

There's a link posted previously above. It's says the concept architects are Glen Howells. I don't know if that means another architect practice will also be involved?
