Solid bit of urban hinterland design.

The hotel is five mins max away from the city centre, close to a major university and next to a very busy motorway. Should do ok.

MIPIM 2010: Plans to spice up former HP Sauce site

Plans for a new hotel and warehousing will bring the former HP Sauce site in Aston back to life, Coun Mike Whitby, the Leader of Birmingham City Council, has told delegates at MIPIM 2010, the global property conference in Cannes.

The site, which has stood derelict for three years, has been purchased by East End Foods which has a £25 million plan for the former HP Sauce factory that will see the creation of 125,000 sq ft of cash and carry warehousing and a 150 bed hotel.

A start on site in June 2010 is planned with completion as early as December 2010.

The hotel will be a 14 storey building with conference facilities designed by FBDA Architects, the merged practice of Fellows Burt Dalton & Associates, Mode 2 Architects and Alan Murray Associates.

Coun Whitby said: “This will be a major investment for north west Birmingham and Aston in particular.

“The project will create 295 jobs in an area of the city that will welcome an initiative on this scale and is a great example of how Birmingham rebounds from events like the disappointment of the closure of the HP Sauce factory to come back fighting with regeneration projects that create more employment.”

Discussions are understood to have already taken place between East End Foods and worldwide hotel chain Hilton Hotels, who are in the frame to operate the 14 storey landmark building.

We should have known - the branding for the hotel is in the planning app! It's going to be a Doubletree hotel, which is owned by the Hilton Group.

That's a Hampton hotel. There's another one proposed for Constitution Hill as well, IIRC.

Hilton Hotel proposed on site of former HP Sauce factory in Birmingham

Mar 19 2010 by Alun Thorne
Add a commentRecommend The new owners of the former HP Sauce site in Birmingham have been in talks with the Hilton Group over proposals for a 14-storey hotel on the site.

East End Foods – which is run by the Wouhra family – acquired the site last year and submitted a planning application in January for a 125,000 sq ft cash and carry warehousing operation a 150-bed hotel.

It has now been revealed that the new owners have had extended talks with the world-renowned hotel group with a view to the new development opening as soon as December this year.

Detailed designs for the site – which will also include conferencing facilities – have already been drawn up by FBDA Architects, the merged practice of Fellows Burt Dalton & Associates, Mode 2 Architects and Alan Murray Associates.

The plans for the former HP Sauce site in Aston, which had stood derelict for three years after Heinz moved production to the Netherlands, were announced by Birmingham City Council leader Mike Whitby at the MIPIM property show in Cannes.

“This will be a major investment for north west Birmingham and Aston in particular,” he said.

“The project will create 295 jobs in an area of the city that will welcome an initiative on this scale and is a great example of how Birmingham rebounds from events like the disappointment of the closure of the HP Sauce factory to come back fighting with regeneration projects that create more employment.”

The announcement about the future of the former HP Sauce site follows the unveiling at MIPIM of a series of other major development schemes for Birmingham.

Birmingham Science Park Aston has released plans to build a £40million Innovation Village which will see the construction of four new buildings next to the current science park.

Dr David Hardman, managing director of the science park, said the proposed Innovation Village was powerful evidence of the science park’s determination to drive its reputation higher on the world stage.

He said: “Birmingham Science Park Aston is all about providing a physical presence where a professional infrastructure links with technology, innovation, funding, and the key driver in any knowledge-based business, the people, to create a world leading resource of intellectual capital.

“At a time when the knowledge economy is seen a key factor in moving the UK out of recession, Birmingham Science Park Aston initiatives are championing and catalysing the innovation economy of Birmingham and the region by supporting innovators and entrepreneurs to help them deliver their aspirations and drive their high-tech services and products towards the market place.”

It has also been announced this week that the University College Birmingham – formerly known as Birmingham College of Food, Tourism & Creative Studies – plans to build a brand new campus on four acres on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter. UCB Principal Prof Ray Linforth said the intention was, over time, to develop a new campus on land bounded by George Street, Holland Street and Charlotte Street.

The college already owns two acres and is under contract to purchase an adjoining site of similar size.

The intention is to develop the new campus in three phases starting with circa 80,000 sq ft which will house a new student hub that will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for the benefit mainly of higher education students, giving them round the clock access to suit their individual requirements.

The first phase will also include a new postgraduate centre and additional classrooms plus interlinking social space.

The initial phase will cost £20 million, which Prof Linforth said would be funded from reserves and UCB plans to have the first part of the new campus open by 2013.

“This will be the largest capital project in the Jewellery Quarter in the next few years and will be a significant catalyst in the economic regeneration of the area,” said Prof Linforth.

In his keynote speech to delegates at the MIPIM event, Coun Whitby said described the coming years as the “decade of delivery” in Birmingham. He said projects like the New Street redevelopment and the new library alongside the regeneration of key former industrial sites in the city would help to bring tens of thousands of jobs to the city.

He said: “There are simply too many projects coming out of the ground and coming off the drawing boards to be denied and even the cynics are having to take their hats off to this vibrant city.”

Well, it's only about half a mile from the edge of the city centre... And it's on one of the main routes into the city centre too (Aston Expressway). Should help create a good impression as you drive along it.

I remember years ago the Waterlinks development being heralded as the "natural" expansion of the city centre eastwards, would like to think this excellent scheme would attract some proposals between this area and Aston Science park to revtalise this area!
