Plans revealed for major apartment scheme in city centre

How the scheme would look

Plans have been revealed for a new development of homes in Birmingham city centre.

Henley-in-Arden based Rainier Developments has submitted plans for a new 111-apartment scheme that would replace a car park in Upper Gough Street.

The development would be a mix of one- and two-bedroom homes and would include an open rooftop space for residents.

Grant Stevenson, Rainier Developments planning director, said: “The market for city centre living in Birmingham remains strong and there is continued need for more new homes.

“We are now looking to bring forward this development of more than 100 apartments, which would be a positive addition to Birmingham’s residential offer.”

Rainier Developments is the company behind the development of 37 apartments in Tenby Street, in the Jewellery Quarter.

Stevenson added: “Birmingham continues to strive to be a more sustainable city. Having more people living in the city centre can only support that drive.

“This is an exciting time for the city, and we are delighted to be investing here once again.”
