There's progress on the former New Adventurers pub site. Now called Barberry 55.

It's quite a unique situation here. Every football fan of a traditional club dreads that move to an 'out of town' stadium in an industrial estate by the motorway.

Aston Villa FC, once surrounded by rows of terraced houses and traditional pubs, without moving an inch now find themselves playing in an out of town stadium in an industrial estate by the motorway.

I dunno. I'd say north sits the Holford estate and new wholesale markets, east is the new sites on the old serpentine and around electric avenue, south now the Adventurers, Vauxall dealer sites being developed, and east is Aston Hall and park.

Aside the small estate between the Doug Ellis Stand and the train line, and the small pocket out towards the north west, it's become an industrial area, and as for those remaining houses: how long have they got???

Not sure I can agree tbh. All of the housing shown here https://www.google.co.uk/search?rlz=...9p7RUIf2ubhZM:

Is still here.

The areas you have mentioned have been in industrial use for ages though. They aren’t new so it’s not as if the ground has found its self suddenly in an industrial area, it’s been this way for near 70 years

What’s the issue being in an industrial area?

To be honest I drove down here the other week and was quite surprised at just how much sq ft of units had sprung up, not been over that way in a few years

There's two large industrial units shown above, one on Priory Road (formerly rows of terraced houses and a tower block of flats) the other on the site of the Adventurers Pub.

There's further housing due for demolition on Church Lane.

The issue with being in an industrial area is that the place looses it's feeling of being the community centre, it becomes isolated and cold. Pubs and houses that surround old football grounds are what makes the football ground the heartbeat.
Loosing this is every fans worse nightmare.

Obviously it's nowhere near as bad as some of the clubs that up-sticks and chose to go, Coventry for a great local example. But the area has certainly changed considerably from a gritty close suburb to an industrial zone, in the 30 years + Ive been going, and I'm certain that this trend will continue.

The Comer brothers (housebuilders) showed an interest in buying the club and it's assets when Randy Lerner eventually took ownership. Rumour is that on their visit they walked straight past Villa Park to the Serpentine site, decided it was no good for homes and walked away, no deal, thank goodness.

But this shows that new houses are highly unlikely to be built in the immediate vicinity of the stadium, the expressway and now established industry hub mean it's undesirable and really not fit for that purpose. As the leftover homes go, they'll be replaced by stadium expansion, leisure facilities and further industrial units.

The closest new housing will be the old UCE site and out at Perry Barr.

You are correct in that there is little space for residential in this prt of aston but this is mainly due to potential flooding.

I still maintain that the areas you are talking about (Prior Road etc) were an odd historic mix of residential and industrial units and contained very little amounts of housing. If you look at historical photos of the area, you can see that the indurtrial areas remain largely the same now (the AAMH being an exception and only poor quality housing has been lost in that instant). Hydro Power (i think is called) has been an undeveloped for the longest time. The only homes that have been demolished thus far are ones in floodzone.

You are quite right in that some of the area isn't condusive for housing due to the epressway and flooding but the change isn't one of destruction, it is one of best use of land. The lack of housing is because the land isn't good for homes and land that is no good for homes should be made availible for other uses and if necessary, and there is a good case for it, replacing poor quality homes (like those on Prior Street).

As i said, the tradition homes which exist around Witton Road, Trinity Road and north of Witton Lane will not change character in the near furture. Many of them are owned and fetch prices not far from 120-170k depending on alterations. I can confidently say that there won't be any change happening for at least at least for 15 years in this part. As for the wider part, the changes are not as drastic as you make out.

The structure for Barberry 55 is now complete, grounds aren't though.


Nearby, the tower block Osbourne House has hoardings round it, looking ripe for demolition.

Another prominent addition to the AMH & would be wasted in the 'Big Shed Thread'

Y International is underway

Quote:
Y International, a subsidiary belonging to billion pound retail giant LuLu Group International, has confirmed a £15 million investment in a new 124,000 sq ft European headquarters in Birmingham’s Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMH), creating 80 new jobs.


Here's the full size image. You'll be able to see Snow Hill in the distance and Exchange Square peaking. The building directly in the foreground also had an app go in for its demolition recently

2020 completion

Quote:
A major industrial and warehouse scheme worth in the region of £14m has taken a step forward after the site was snapped up by developers.

Chancerygate and Hines have purchased a 3.75-acre site at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub in Aston to speculatively build a new 19-unit scheme.

The site is the fifth acquisition for the joint venture between industrial developer and asset manager Chancerygate, which opened an office in Birmingham city centre last November, and international real estate firm Hines.

Totalling 93,000 sq ft, the proposed scheme will provide units ranging from 2,500 to 9,000 sq ft.

Chancerygate and Hines are set to submit planning proposals for the development in the coming months and, if approval is granted, completion is scheduled for autumn 2020.

Developers snap up land at Aston’s Advanced Manufacturing Hub for £14m scheme

Rachel Covill

|
Developers have purchased a 3.75-acre site at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub in Aston to speculatively build a 19-unit industrial and warehouse scheme with a gross development value of around £14m.

The site is the fifth acquisition for the joint venture (JV) between industrial developer and asset manager Chancerygate, which opened an office in Birmingham city centre last November, and international real estate firm Hines.

Totalling 93,000 sq ft, the proposed scheme will provide units ranging from 2,500 to 9,000 sq ft. Chancerygate and Hines will submit planning proposals for the development in the forthcoming months with completion scheduled for autumn 2020.

Located immediately adjacent to junction 6 of the M6 and two miles north of the city centre, the Advanced Manufacturing Hub is a joint initiative between Birmingham City Council and Homes England.

The Advanced Manufacturing Hub is already home to world-leading precision cutting tools manufacturer Guhring, global hydraulic cartridge valves manufacturer HydraForce and international medical device manufacturer Salts Healthcare.

Chancerygate managing director, Richard Bains, said: “This was a very attractive site for our joint venture to acquire, as it is already a well-established regional hub for advanced manufacturing. We will be building high-quality, smaller industrial and warehouse units which will complement those already on site.

“Chancerygate opened its Birmingham office last year as part of our strategy to capitalise on development opportunities in the West and East Midlands. This approach is working well and we look forward to further expanding our operations throughout the region.”

Chancerygate and Hines launched their JV last September. With a GDV totalling around £100m, the portfolio of industrial space now represents 643,000 sq ft across additional developments in Bournemouth, Nottingham, Tonbridge and Cheltenham.

Greg Cooper, Hines UK director of industrial and logistics, said: “This site represents another exceptional acquisition for the joint venture, extending our track record of moving at pace to identify and secure the most sought-after locations where we can speculatively develop high quality industrial facilities in markets where demand is significantly outstripping supply.”

Homes England senior specialist, Stuart Buckley, added: “We have played a vital role in land assembly, demolition and remediation works to bring this land forward for commercial development with Birmingham City Council.

“This in turn is reinforcing Aston as a location for high value manufacturing so it’s great to see Chancerygate joining the growing list of companies investing in world-class facilities at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub to provide skilled manufacturing jobs for local people.”

Cllr Ian Ward, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “I am delighted that Chancerygate and Hines have chosen to make this significant invest at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub. The AHM has attracted a number of major manufacturing companies, created over 1,500 jobs and attracted over £70m of private sector investment. This development will provide a number of starter units which will support the SME sector within the city, complement the larger occupiers at the site, and create further local employment opportunities.”

Chair of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership, Tim Pile, added: “The news that Chancerygate and Hines have chosen the Advanced Manufacturing Hub for their development scheme is testament to our world-class advanced manufacturing and engineering facilities. The choice to locate the scheme here is proof that we are creating the right business environment for private investment and regional growth, and that we are delivering on our strategic objectives – to grow the economy, create quality jobs and facilitate a sustainable supply chain in developing manufacturing industries.”
Colliers and Savills have been appointed as sales and lettings agents.

Proposals for 19 new industrial units at the Advanced Manufacturing Hub in Birmingham have been revealed.

Plots three and four at the site in Aston Hall Road have been earmarked for the development which would create 92,562 sq ft of employment floor space.

A total of 121 car parking spaces have also been included in the plans drawn up by KE Architecture.

The proposals are a joint initiative between Birmingham City Council and Homes England.

The 3.7-acre site is currently vacant.

The hub has already attracted a number of major manufacturing companies, created more than 1,500 jobs and attracted in excess of £70m of private sector investment, according to the applicants.

A statement submitted to Birmingham City Council on behalf of the applicants said: "The proposed development will provide a number of starter to medium-size units which will support the SME sector within the region, complement the larger occupiers in the AMH, and create further local employment opportunities.

"The application has been well considered and has taken account of the varied requirements of the site and its environs.

"It has also been refined to take account of the council’s comments at 'pre-application' stage and the proposals demonstrate that the site can be redeveloped for the intended uses without compromising local amenity."
