Apartment scheme for former Jewellery Quarter nightclub



The residential regeneration of Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter is set to continue with the city council set to approve plans for a four-storey development.

Queensbridge Homes has applied for permission to develop a vacant plot on corner of Hampton Street and Henrietta Street which used to be the site of a nightclub.

The completed would provide 32 new apartments comprising a mix one, two, three and four bedroom units. These would be split between five one-bed, 22 two-bed, four three-bed and one four-bed units.

The site has been vacant for a number of years following the demolition of the club and a previous residential scheme that was never followed through.

Due to land levels, the proposed development would be three storeys facing onto Bond Street and increase to four storeys as the development wraps around Hampton Street and Henrietta Street. The proposed scheme would be developed up to the back of pavement and an internal courtyard is proposed to the rear of the site. The main entrance to the building would be on the corner of Hampton Street and Bond Street.

There is no parking provision within the scheme but 32 cycle parking spaces would be provided.

The council has recommended a developer contribution of £230,000 towards an off-site affordable housing provision.

A report to Thursday’s planning committee states: “This proposal would result in a good quality residential development that would have a positive impact to the character of the Jewellery Quarter Conservation Area.”

Really, really like this. I don't know why but it reminds me of a bank in a small non-descript American city but in a good way.

I know people always demand height on new builds in Brum but I would say that if this had been 10-12 storeys it could have been quite spectacular.

It looks great and hopefully we get more of the same around this area in the coming years.

We may as well have a thread for the old Assay office car park if we have one for this one, especially for photos when it is hopefully under construction.

Really like this. It's got a sort of art deco meets warehouse conversion meets mansion block aesthetic going on if you know what I mean :lol:

My only gripe would be the lack of outlook on the top floors. I'd like to see a proper mansard to get around this, especially as all the other floors have such enormous windows.

Can't remember too many proposals coming forward in the last couple of years in the Jewellery Quarter which have done anything other than enhance the landscape with good quality design and it's great to see this start to over-spill into the Gun Quarter, really like the look of this.
