Graphics have appeared around the car park with renders saying 'Coming Soon' and 'Register Interest'.. Can't be too long now until we see the car park close!

The spandrel panels on the upper floors, the poor articulation of the left hand wing (assuming it’s a new build) and the ground floor retail looks weird.

Why do you find the ground floor retail weird? The sheer amount of it is one of the reasons I really like this development, and I don't see anything particularly odd about how it's laid out. Perhaps the large number of very small units is a bit unusual, but I'm sure they'll be chopped and changed once tenants start getting interested.

Yup, the street level is a major gripe for me. The primary frontages are Hurst Street and Pershore Street (which desperately needs some decent active frontages) yet the retail units here are treated as an after-thought and disappear into the ground. By contrast, Skinner Lane gets a fairly impressive street level frontage, even though it's a side street.

The change in street level should have been accommodated by a step in the building that would have maintained the overall height of the retail units. This suggests that the taller element of the scheme should have been placed on the higher ground, whereas they've located it on the lower ground.

I'm also disappointed (but not surprised as they're a private developer after all) that they didn't take the opportunity to create a small square on one corner on Hurst Street as a nod to the long-standing plan for the area. This could have been accommodated by simply changing the massing slightly. No need to loose habitable units.

This is what bugs me about this development. In the render Reiss posted the Skinner Lane frontage looks a lot better then what is going up on Pershore Street and Hurst Street. Along both of the main streets there is going to be sections of just brick wall while Skinner Lane is active all the way along. It's confusing.

I agree. But the question was how much for a studio.

If you suggest a 1 bed starts at 180k then surely you agree a studio would be less than 180k?

The reason I bumped the thread was because they've announced (which was probably the case all along) that they want to get on site before the year is out. Here's another couple of images we've not seen ..

I LOVE this, seems as though the Gay Quarter area is going to have some decent height with this and the other couple of apartment blocks going up.

Sorry to bump once again but the section 106 agreement has now been finalised which ended with one of the legal assistants asking them to arrange that planning permission be issued as soon as possible. Will they be on site before the year comes to an end? ...

It's maybe not the most original design. But it looks high quality and I personally really like the height of the glass at ground level, it transforms the area to a welcoming extension to the city centre. A much welcome transformation.

London housebuilder Galliard Homes has again teamed up with Birmingham firm Apsley House Capital to provide 2,800 new apartments across the city in developments worth £500m.

The first project is the The Timber Yard, designed by Claridge Architects, a 6,070m2 acre development with 379 apartments slotted into a seven and a 13-storey building in the city centre.

From the 1760s the Pershore Street site held a yard which supplied Birmingham’s cotton factories and canal boats with timber.

Subsequently, a joinery factory, a silversmiths and an aluminium works were added beside the yard but in the 1970s onsite factories were demolished and a large car park was introduced.

The scheme’s contractor is Galliard Construction, which is joined by engineer Meinhardt. The detailed design architect is Rolfe Judd.

Their instagram pages are being sickeningly relentless so I hope they sell out in a week and get building asap.
