Plans go in for Birmingham Gun Quarter apartment scheme

An application for detailed planning permission for 84 apartments at 51-61 Price Street in Birmingham’s Gun Quarter has been put forward.

The scheme, by Elevate Property Group and designed by Birmingham firm K4 Architects, will include the restoration of the listed Gunsmith House to provide 34 one bedroom, 44 two bedroom and four three bedroom apartments in total.

The development was granted outline planning permission for the conversion and building work in May 2020.

If approved construction will begin in the third quarter of 2021 with completion projected for the end of 2022.

Development director James Costello said: “With work already having started on our recently acquired development at Priory House in Southside, this is another scheme in a great location for those who live and work in the city.

“The Gun Quarter has a great heritage and we look forward to restoring Gunsmith House as part of the development, furthering our commitment to protecting the best of the old alongside fantastic new living accommodation in a popular part of Birmingham.”
