It was proposed before we knew the city was going for the CWG wasn't it?

Yes, although the games should incentives to be built beforehand

It could but not necessarily. If they made a decision prior to this knowledge there is no guarantee that the CWG will impact their timescale especially as it's clearly a big project for them and seem quite the risk for them.

I asked regarding Connaught Square (Senior Project Manager for a Construction company within the city)

I was told that Seven Capital want a steady flow of projects on the go - and that includes out of town ones & it was possible, not 100%, that they could start after they've done St Martin's Place - although this isn't a cast iron cert.

They do have projects finishing up in the city with Colmore Tang, so it would be nice for them to crack on with CS after that. It's a difficult one to predict because those within Seven Capital are keeping their cards close to their chests.

Good news if it is. Always thought it was gearing up to become a blight on the landscape

So when is St Martin's Place expected to complete? Connaught Square was meant to be starting this summer. Appears to me that CS has been put on the back burner.

We'll see what's up their sleeves once SGUV finishes later this month. They're a difficult bunch to pin down tbh.

St Martin's Place is earmarked for 2021 isn't it? 15 months minimum

Only my opinion but I can't see Seven Capital wanting to hang on for at least another fifteen months before they make a start on Connaught Square. At least I hope not.

Massively disappointing if that's the case, "possible they could start after they've done St Martin's Place"?..so that could be possibly this time next year at the earliest.
I'm impressed with Seven capital's commitment to date in the city, but projects out of town now seem to be taking the light away from Brum, and why so cagey about any queries about their projects.
If you try to get info. they simply want to know, what type of investor are you??
At least Moda are a bit more forthcoming, that said, nothing been announced yet, despite some promises, for Great Charles Street.
My 2019 main projects I wanted to see start were 103 Colmore Row, the Mercian and Connaught Square, it would have made my year if all three had made a start. Alas their most high profile "game changer" development in the city to date appears to be faltering

Probably they look at CS and the immediate expense and river works mean it's not the most profitable, especially if we're looking at probable recession in next few years?

Court Collaborations Bullring Trading Estate (The Charter) site has ceased operating as a car park, probably too early to read anything into this?

I can't recollect any planning app for any development here. Seems strange that they have closed the car park. Is this part of the area where the Peaky Blinders festival will be at the weekend?

Only a guess but it's possibly such a big app that it's taking a long time to validate it.

Along with a projected protracted start, and a decade and half to build, I find it pretty hard to motivate myself with this one.

Unlikely to be validation delays unless there is an issue with documents being wrong or missing. The size of the app may impact it being online to view though.
