So good, you posted it twice.

This area will become student town if all these proposed developments go ahead.

Some of the other proposals seem to have gone a bit quiet recently.

I would love to think this proposal will bring some "vibrancy" to the area, but I doubt it, there's hundreds of student rooms around here across the A34, but the area remains absolutely soulless.
I don't know whether its the location, next to half used old factories, or the roads around here that isolate any and every development, and then the gun quarter is as dodgy as it gets with the salvation army hostel and homeless hostel just up the road.
I would love to see some shops and bars and eateries, but the area as nothing going for it,
I think it gives a sorry impression to the lots of students coming to Birmingham.

Found free parking off Summer Lane and walked up to the Children's Hospital yesterday and am amazed at how untapped the Gun Q is - some lovely old buildings that need some TLC. With students around this area should become more like Digbeth.

Looks like this one may go ahead this time around, rumoured to be run by the same operators of Kensington house and the Bristol street scheme opposite etap


New renders

Dull. You can tell it is a London architect who has probably never visited the site using London buff bricks in an historic Brummie industrial area notable for its Staffordshire red.

But buff bricks are asthetically more pleasing then staffordshire red IMO. It's not the only project in this area that's going down the buff brick route. I can think of 3 projects. If anything it might make the historic staff red buildings stand out more.

In the right place yes, Southside does it very well.

Here they should work with what is there. No buildings of interest on site so a good development site but canalside = blue engineering brick and Victorian industry = staffs red. At least it is not all metal rainscreen cladding, value engineered to face-fixed.

Thanks for those. I'm just echoing myself at this point, but we need as many mid rise like this as possible.

Its good to see this may go ahead, its just a shame its in such a rundown part of town. Despite numerous student blocks going up around here the street scene and interactivity is a massive ZERO.

The whole area reaching from Aston University to the Gun Quarter is crying out for "LIFE" but none of these developments bring any improvement or rejuvination, that you might expect to the streets around them.

My original home city is Leeds and there is a completely different "dynamics and social integration" in and around the student accomodation developed there.

Take a walk from the city centre via Woodhouse Lane. past the Parkinson Building and carry on right through to Headingley, or visit their "Northern Quarter" and you see old buildings, brought back to and teeming with life, cafe's, bars,independant shops of every kind.
I don't know whether its the location of the university there (adjoining the city centre) or the way the city is mapped out, but it just seems to work so much better than Brum.

You would expect the old factories and buildings around the Gun Quarter to be revelling in masses of students, but no!.
Leeds has no metro, it has a poor regional airport (considering its bigger than Manchester) but the whole city "feels" different, the city centre has some big shopping centres like Brum, but the streets in between are unbelievable in their offering of independant pubs, eateries, restaurants and shops.

Maybe there's more money in Leeds, but something attracts small time operators and independants on a scale that's incompareable to Brum.
Any forum members familiar with Leeds, I'd welcome your thoughts. Now a firm adopted Brummie, but woulkd love to see this Student area around the Gun Quarter/Aston reaping some benefit to develop a "community" which seems so clearly lacking down there despite all the accomodation thats flown up.

Does one of those renders show the canal in the foreground? If it does it means this development will allow access onto the canal. I hope that's the case. Too many developments ignore the canal and separate it off with walls and fencing.

It does. However, i expect the police to comment on the open nature and ask for security measures to ensure safety of students at ground floor.

nigeman I think it's because these areas don't have enough footfall yet. I suspect more shops will be added in future schemes when there's more accommodation. Most of these areas at the moment are just 2 storey workshops at best.
