Resi development plans forming part of £330m regeneration scheme approved

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

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.

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 received full planning permission through a unanimous vote from the planning committee.

“Glancy Nicholls Architects 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.
