One good thing about the CAZ is we’re getting rid of car garages in the city centre and new showrooms outside the city centre I guess

This one is going really slow and you should see some of the houses, they are getting even smaller if that was ever possible. It is truly shocking.

Oh well here you go, don't say I didn't warn you

This is so disappointing. I expected this to be a disappointing development but it’s even worse than I expected.

Who are the developers? I guess reserve judgement until near completed, but this is standard volume house builder tat.

I really don't see why people are surprised, this is standard in many new housing developments across the City, I guess it's just getting more response because of the location.

Anyway, the apartment block design is absolute quality, hopefully that will gain so respect back from many people.

Yes it’s because of the city centre location that I am particularly disappointed with this development. If it was in Kings Heath I’d think it was acceptable.

This is the problem when you get a volume house builder.

Compare this to what Urban Splash are doing at Port Loop, Berkeley at Snow Hill Wharf and Apsley House are proposing for their various sites and it's all rather disheartening to see the loss of potential here.

Thanks for whole-site update, Brum X. Venturing down amongst the ruffians again, I see. ;-)

I walked down St.Lukes Road en-route to town a little over one week ago.I swear the 'sheds' were not under construction on that date.If they were, the biggest problem they had on that land was a blocked drains event which had closed the road.

The 'apartment block design' Reiss refers to I presume is Berrington Place, pics 6 + 7. I have regularly used my early-morn walk down me old end to view this progress.There seems not to have been any movement on site for over a week...

Here's hoping there is a reasonable explanation, as I have an email invite to the forthcoming 'launch,' as and when...

This should have at minimum been like St. George’s urban village in the lowest parts in my opinion

CAZ will only affect some cars not all.

Could imagine these houses in Dickens Heath or something, don't call them shit just because they're in the City Centre, this is quite standard across the country.

Personally I think they look much better than some of the dross over at Park Central, which is also in the City Centre

St Luke's | Sherlock Street | Residential | 15/7/4/3fl | 46m | U/C

I wouldn’t object to these building being built in Dickens Heath, or Druids Heath, or any of the heaths. Of corse they are nowhere near good enough for the centre of Kings Heath. These buildings are suitable for the suburbs only. Not town centres or city centres.

The shit buildings in Park Central are made less offensive because they are positioned next to decent buildings or they are hidden away in places most people are unlikely to see. Also when Park Central was built no one was sure if it would be successful. Many people thought it would soon revert back to its old Lee Bank ways. It’s totally different now. City centre living is a proven success, even on the fringes, and we can expect much better quality developments to succeed.

Buildings like St Luke’s are being built all over the country but they are not appropriate for a city centre location. There’s supposed to be a housing crisis! We need higher density.
