By the way, how have we put up with this elevation of Travelogde for so long? Glad it's soon to be hidden.

Mick George has landed the earthworks package from main contractor Clegg Construction on a major new student accommodation project in Birmingham’s Southside district.

Work will see construction of a 398 room student complex worth around £38m with completion scheduled for 2019

Michael George, Contracts Director at Mick George Ltd said: “Central Birmingham isn’t somewhere we work regularly, so it is good to be given the opportunity to expand in to that territory.

There is already student accomodation in Southside Felsham, that block on Bromsgrove street is a student block.

As long as there isnt too much student stuff then im ok for this to go ahead as planned.

It's a scruby awkward corner of a site near night life and markets.... about as 24/7 as it gets in Brum and not really in a positive 'city living way.

Students developments are the filler for such sites and therefore make sense in this location.

Also, it'll probably be marketed to the wealthy Chinese students, and BOOM this is right next to China Town, and a short walk to Eastside BCU.

This project along with The Forum and Travelodge fill the site very well if you ask me, space well used and every corner is taken.

I would be in favour of knocking down the two markets next to the BullRing (Indoor Market and Rag Market) and move them, and the outdoor market, to another part of the city centre, then totally redevelop that whole area South of the BullRing.
Two points:

1)Those 'roads and buildings' are indicative of the industrial/manufacturing heritage of this area of Birmingham.They are part of the atmosphere of Digbeth/Deritend.If every building ends up being 'converted' to apartments, that heritage will cease to exist and the area become truly soulless.

2)Where,precisely, could the Indoor,Rag and Outdoor Markets relocate to Guilbert? They, too,are fundamental to Birmingham's heritage and their respective locations are a matter of the City's proud history with specific reference to the Bull Ring.

With respect,you are way off-mark on these observations...

To be fair, the approach to London is equally as bad as the approach to Birmingham.

Guilbert.

Westside is only populated in that way due to the burgeoning entertainment aspect,which frankly was always there.(the Office workers might have a snort after work, then they are off home to wherever) Nowadays its simply tarted-up, and I use that phrase advisedly given Broad Street's see-sawing reputation in that respect...The canals are a plus but there is no way the dear old River Rea is ever going to fulfill that role over Digbeth/Deritend.

Once HS2 is 'Destination Curzon Street' there will be a plethora of sense-of-entitlement Londoners paving Birmingham's streets of silver.Far be it from me to deny them the gold that permeates every aspect of their priveliged Capital City/Unlimited Investment lives.But they will quickly be subject to the Brummie welcome of self-deprecating humour and warmth.They will,too,contemplate their adopted City as moving through a period of transition and appreciate the remaining 'brickwork history' to be encountered.

Lastly.As a native of the Southside area of Brum I have to reiterate that the Wholesale Markets site will only become an extension of developments on Bradford Street.Boxes on the hillside will become boxes on the 'flat.'Perhaps the odd tree/patch of grass.

I notice you avoided my second point about the relocating of the Markets triumvirate?Could this be because,on reflection,you accept they are fundamental to the human heartbeat of the area.Take them away and why would anyone venture further than St Martin's, if only to return home to the massed apartment blocks of boxes that the area beyond is going to become.
