Birmingham-based developer Court Collaboration is to bring forward a £125m build-to-rent scheme on the site of the former Irish Centre in Deritend, to the south-east of the city centre.
It has worked up plans for a 48-storey tower comprising 454 flats and 10,000 sq ft of amenity space on a site neighbouring its £350m Stone Yard development.
Architects Glancy Nicholls have designed a contemporary signature building that will front High Street Deritend, to the south of Digbeth.
Court Collaboration acquired the site at the start of the year.


Can someone post the render please? It looks a similar shape to Beetham.

Love the shape of this, another Glancy Nicholls project, they’ve really been putting the work into Birmingham recently.

Also, anyone notice the Stone Yard tower is a different colour? It’s still sitting in the planning app too so I guess we have amendments coming.

I like it, certainly a more interesting shaped tower than most of Birmingham's other tall proposals. I do question whether this sort of build is appropriate for the area as any negative impact on cultural venues here would be a net loss for Birmingham. Hopefully that is thought through properly.
Looking at this project in isolation, maybe it doesn't fit in with what's there now, but once you consider all the other projects going on in this part of Birmingham (Connaught, Stone Yard, Upper Trinity St), I don't think it'll be such an issue.

Sustained tall building proposals seem to be lining the tram routes - Broad Street, Digbeth High Street and then up towards Adderley street with the height sloping off to a more human scale or where there are historic buildings as you get further away from the main roads which will run trams, which seems sensible. There are of course a few outliers but these might be the start of demand for new lines in the future, perhaps down Jennens Road to Eastside Locks and I'd like to see a new higher density Duddeston or up the A38 to Perry Barr.

Totally Jon - Imagine, on the Eastside extension alone we'll have..

Martinaeu Galleries
HS2
Connaught Square*
Irish Centre
Stone Yard
Lunar Rise*
Former Bus Garage
Upper Trinity Street

*I have reservations about both projects, but we'll see.

All projects of substantial size, most project having a tower. Digbeth High Street Improvements also. I guess you could also add the likes of Exchange Square 1/2 and One Eastside into the mix too.

I have to say, the next Metro Line that would make sense is the A34 through Gun Quarter/Newtown to Perry Barr & Great Barr, with a Park + Ride at J7, if Walsall don't want the metro, they don't have to have it, stop it at the boarder (M6 J7).

Court Collaboration plans £125m Deritend BTR scheme

Emma Rosser01/05/2020 | Residential | Birmingham


Birmingham-based developer Court Collaboration is to bring forward a £125m build-to-rent scheme on the site of the former Irish Centre in Deritend, to the south-east of the city centre.

It has worked up plans for a 48-storey tower comprising 454 flats and 10,000 sq ft of amenity space on a site neighbouring its £350m Stone Yard development.

Architect Glancy Nicholls has designed a contemporary signature building that will front High Street Deritend, to the south of Digbeth.

Court Collaboration acquired the site at the start of the year. The Irish Centre is to relocate to a 12-acre site at the former Stadium Club on Wheelers Lane and Court Collaboration is working to ensure it retains a presence in the area.

The developer will launch an online public consultation prior to lodging finalised plans with Birmingham City Council.



Chief executive Anthony McCourt said: “Especially in these unprecedented times of uncertainty, milestones and city skyline aspirations such as this gives confidence to our city as a whole, that, working together, we can all create a future to be truly proud of.”

Birmingham City Council leader Ian Ward added: “The proposals for the former Irish Centre are a further sign of sustained confidence in Birmingham as the city continues to evolve and ready itself for a truly exciting future.”

Court Collaboration has a portfolio of 15 developments across Birmingham, Leeds, Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton with circa 7,000 flats on site or at planning stages.

These include the £160m One Eastside next to the HS2 Curzon Street Station, which is set to be Birningham’s first residential skyscraper, and the £100m New Garden Square development in Edgbaston on land acquired from the Calthorpe Estates.
