Thats the HS2 effect starting to get traction.

Can you imagine the reaction when these developers find out there's literally Hectares of cheap, undeveloped land, not only in the centre of a Major European City, but within walking distance of a Station that will be 49 Mins from London Euston.

I've never bought into the narrative that HS2 would cause more people and money to move into London from the North, the exact opposite was always going to be the case.

Good call Reiss - all the internal blocks on the Ring road should be earmarked for good midrise developments using any canals that are running through them - and that goes for that huge waste of space across the way straddling both sides of Bordesley Middleway.

To think this is just one area in the inner city ring around the city centre, so much potential development land available to expand the city centre.

They’ve been there a while

I think they appeared when interserve was working on the rare disease centre at the children’s hospital not far away but that’s finished now - maybe a base for further internal works at children’s hosp

Whilst this is likely to be a few years into the future, this is exciting to see such a big plot taken up. Similar to the Eastside Locks proposal, the canalside interaction will hopefully be a huge draw. Especially if Typhoo Wharf gets similar treatment.

It’s been said many times by many people on here, but to have an actual canalside from the Cube, all the way to Digbeth with branches down to Soho Loop would be such a unique addition to the city.

Got a few photos to upload tonight, but to save me from saving this on every post, they're a little late as thee 'Database error' pushed me away from the forum for a few days.

Well it’s all about balance so prime space is fully utilised but poor quality large towers out of character with their surroundings aren’t just thrown up anywhere. In terms of the relevance for this country we have a ‘housing crisis’ and 60m people on a small land mass so density is much more of an issue then almost anywhere else in Europe.

What doesn’t help is our second rate public transport system with almost all funding going to London which does not help the rebalancing of the economy, connectivity and as a result widespread developments of under utilised land.

Rather than ourselves and Manchester having to go to central government and beg for funding a mile at a time for additional metro they should have invested in a proper underground for both cities becoming of their size and importance rather than pouring almost unlimited funds into cross rail (which I am not against) in order to properly drive redevelopment outside of the current centralised racket in London and the south east.

HS2 running from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, York, Newcastle and then Edinburgh would also be another warranted move to bring our transport network up to the levels of other countries and increase density in prime land and improve connectivity for neighbouring areas for high quality medium density developments on under utilised land.

Am I right in thinking that the Eastside to the Airport metro extension actually passes through the middle of the site via Adderley Street?

Sorry Mos, Gian Capital are involved in converting 44 Bradford Street on the corner to 41 studios. They've had more apps go in on that place than I've got socks

I believe so, although I can't recall seeing the detailed route yet.

Propertyweek article suggesting it will.

Residential developer plans mixed-use scheme in first step outside South East.

Hub, which is backed by investor Squarestone Growth, acquired a six-acre site that houses a National Express bus garage on Liverpool Street in the Digbeth area.

It plans to bring forward a development that includes creative workspace, residential, leisure and retail space in the medium term.

A new Metrolink Station is planned close to the site, which is around a mile east of the city centre. This will provide fast links to both Birmingham New Street Station and the new HS2 station at Curzon Street, which is now being built.
