Should look something like the bloc hotel when finished. Though I Wish it was 2 or 3 floors higher.

Very nice! Another empty plot in Digbeth taken, great stuff

If it turns out like Bloc Hotel or the new Assay Office, this'll be a great addition to the area, something different too.

The DAS also shows that the original proposal was pretty naff and that the planners insisted on something better

It was pretty terrible wasn't it. BCC need to start insisting on a number of 3bed apartments in these new build apartment blocks. We need more families in the city centre.

The lack of three beds in new developments in Brum is very worrying. Three beds aren`t just for families but couples who want the extra space, maybe a guest bedroom and a study or a box room.

I cannot understand why they won`t insist on a dozen three beds, or at the very least a handful, in each large development.

I mean, what the hell are they expecting people who need the space to do. Has no one at the city council noticed this problem? It really does make me angry when they are so shortsighted.


And why the hell isn`t this proposed building at least a storey higher?

The Council will need a policy to be able to insist on it. I believe a policy is in the works but no idea when it could be adopted. Hopefully the Combined Authority will get some planning powers too.

I agree but do we have the schools?

And this scheme looks really good by the way.

Fair point, but it was more infants and juniors I was thinking of.

They preferably need to be closer to people's homes due to the fact that they can't take themselves. It's proximity of J&I schools that normally instigates moves - it did for us.

Not a bad scheme by any means, with some well considered design points, but there's still room for improvement. Its relationship with St Anne's, on Bradford St to a lesser extent, and Lombard St to a greater extent, is quite poor. The massing and fenestration on Lombard St is too repetitive, and could be broken up by splitting the building, giving views up to the rose window and a glimpse into the internal courtyard. On Bradford St I feel it terminates too abruptly.

There was a particularly attractive Bryant Priest Newman design for this site many moons ago, images now no where to be seen. Smaller blocks of town houses with pitched roofs clad in copper and a random pattern of windows. Worked tremendously well with the church.

You make some good points mikey, I remember the Bryant Priest Newman design, yes it would have broken up the array of similar looking 4 to 6 storey blocks that appear to be the most economically viable schemes that can make it to fruition.
That said, I quite like it, been little movement up here for several years now, this scheme and Harrison Drape are just what's needed to get people flowing through the area and hopefully attract more commercial/retail development too.
Be good to see the large vacant plot on Cheapside developed too. This area could be a really fascinating district in years to come. Would have liked to see the metro running up Bradford Street serving what could be a very popular and dense residential area, that said it won't be far away on Digbeth High Street.
