Second chance for developer with new Rea Valley Quarter scheme

How the scheme could look

A developer has submitted a second planning application for a residential scheme in the Bordesley area of Birmingham – part of the Rea Valley Quarter.

DP Interiors was first granted the go-ahead to build a 107-bed student scheme on the corner of Cheapside and Moseley Road in 2017.

The same developer is behind a new scheme, called Leopold Works, to build 70 apartments on the site, with a mix of 1-, 2- and 3-bed units. The scheme will be part-8 and part-11 storeys high.

Some 16 of the apartments would have access to either private balconies or outdoor terrace spaces, with the rest of the site incuding a first-floor co-working space, and a communal amenity space offering views across the city.

A planning statement reads: “The plot would help re-establish the dense urban grain with the surrounding and emerging buildings in the area, bringing a sense of place with the creation of this new sustainable community.”
