It's smart but quite plain as well. I'm surprised at how bland Kinetic are becoming in their designs now.

That's a bit unfair Erebus. They will deliver the aspirations of their client, and if he wants something toned down but with a bit of flair here and there then this could be it. It is also governed by what the planners will accept.

This looks nice to me, and also is good to see this area finally developing. First impressions of the incorporation of the existing building are good too.

Thanks feltip

Horrid little location. Was expecting to see the existing buildings torn down ages ago. I was very disappointed that this hadn't happened until it looked at this proposal in detail. Think the retention of the listed building is a Masterstroke by the planners who decided to list it in the first place. I've never seen any architectural merit in the building. looks like a horride little squat right now. This proposal however shows exactly why these buildings should be retained and sensitively incorporated into new schemes. it adds interest, the Upper Sean st frontage looks superb and it stops the developer from just coming up with another bland little box just like the apartments next door.

The way they are renovating the listed building really does make it look worth keeping too.

That Chinese restaurant (red one) is pretty good for food.

Its not the greatest design in the world, but the mixed use element and ice rink and residential proposal next door adds density and interest to an area that can be pretty dead at night. If everything gets planning permission around here and gets built, this area will really be taking off. If you then look at the Wholesale markets area being redeveloped that will then connect it right through to the Connaught Square development and beyond.
The city core even in just this area is expanding back into its old centre around Digbeth and Eastside, in 10 years we could have an enormous central area.

A reminder of the original street layout that was dissolved when the markets were developed.

Nice little design! I love the fact that even lowrise housing schemes are stretching upwards rather then outwards now!

A photo of the old buildings opposite markets. The sooner they can sort these the better.

Those buildings have been crying out for something to be done with them for ages! i guess maybe they'll have to wait til after the Market for the site to become more attractive?

Wow, they look quite historic. The one on the left strikes me as being around early 19th century, maybe a little earlier. The one in the middle is an extension to it and I can't really work anything out from the one on the right.
