Plans have been lodged for a residential development which forms part of Edgbaston’s £330m New Garden Square regeneration scheme.

Glancy Nicholls Architects has designed the scheme which will comprise 392 build-to-rent apartments across three blocks.

The scheme provides a community living environment with internal and external amenity space including a gym, work from home space, private dining facilities and guest suites for visitors.

The landscaped courtyard area provides private green space for residents and aims to tie in with the proposed landscape of the overall masterplan on the Calthorpe Estate.

Glancy Nicholls said: “We are pleased to announce that the new residential development which forms part of the wider New Garden Square’s masterplan has been submitted to planning.

“Following the unanimously approved S73 masterplan application on the 12th March, the reserved matters application for the residential element has been submitted.

“We have been working closely with Court Collaboration and Calthorpe Estates for the past year in order to provide a contemporary high-quality environment and design that compliments and enhances the historic Calthorpe Estate.”

When complete, New Garden Square will occupy a 10.7-acre site, west of the city centre along the Hagley Road (A456), a main arterial route into Birmingham.

It will benefit from plans which will see the Metro extend up the Hagley Road, with a terminus stop opposite the scheme outside 54 Hagley Road. The new SPRINT network will also run in parallel with the Metro and continue along Hagley Road to Quinton.
