  • £500m development

    The site will deliver more than one million sq ft of floorspace, 2,000 new homes and 3,000 new jobs, adding £470 million a year to the local economy and attracting millions more visitors to the region, according to the city council.

    Drawing upon the vibrant heritage as the home of markets and the location of the historic medieval manor house and moat, Birmingham Smithfield calls on the area’s original name.

That's the brief the architects were given. Birmingham want's to continue what they've started in terms of being a bit "different" with landmark buildings.

Wow! That's an impressive collection of stats.

Despite all the positive press that we have read about Birmingham recently, Birmingham just keeps knuckling down and gets the job done.

We won't see detailed plans until next year but gensler are developing the scheme. It's due to have at least one significant gateway tower however for many brummies it will be what potential public space they create. A petition has been launched to create a very large city center park not to scale of central park but of similar characteristics. I think many would sacrifice over development for something like that.

Eastside Locks Masterplan
The Eastside

Height: Various | Floors: Various | Client/Architects: Goodman

Links: Official Website
  • Eastside Locks. Outline planning consent has been approved to create 650,000 sq ft of prime, Grade A office space in a thriving, mixed-use development unlike any other in the city. Eventually rising to 800,000 sq ft, the meticulously-considered masterplan will see the delivery of an urban development that's truly distinct from other higher density schemes in every conceivable way. Benefiting from being both water side and park side (and with a strong emphasis on vibrant public spaces) Eastside Locks will offer a cost-effective alternative to Birmingham's traditional central business district
