A prominent site in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is set to be transformed after it received planning permission to be turned into a residential-led scheme.

Cornwall House will be redeveloped into 50 one-bed and 51 two-bed apartments across 6-12 storey building that will include two commercial units on the ground floor.

Developer HBD is behind the scheme, which has been designed by BPN Architects and will be known as Setl.

The scheme will feature a courtyard, workspaces, lounges and a gym. The upper floors of the six-storey building will include 275sq m rooftop garden.

Simon Raiye, director at HBD, said: “Setl will replace a disused site with an attractive, modern new development that will provide new homes with an emphasis on quality and community. It’s a prominent spot in one of the city’s most historic areas and the design reflects that – we’ve worked hard to create a development that is fitting for its location, will enhance the area and sit comfortably alongside its neighbours.

‘It’s an exciting project and we look forward to getting on site.”
