Planning for £ 120m Birmingham mixed use scheme

New plans have been unveiled for a £ 120m development for mixed use in Birmingham city center.

The Solihull-based developer BPG leads the 2.5-acre vacant land scheme surrounded by Kent Street, Gooch Street North and Lower Essex Street in the Southside district.

A number of buildings will be built in a square block reaching up to 11 floors, containing 456 apartments and 5,500 m2 of commercial area on the ground floor, if given the green light by the town planning managers.

There will also be a landscaped patio and a private 7,000 sqm roof terrace as well as a new pedestrian street south of the project.

The plot is currently occupied by low-rise industrial buildings, which would be demolished.

BPG’s development consultant John Tebbutt said: “With proximity to both the city center and the new HS2 station, the development will prove to be extremely attractive to both investors and owners.”

The real estate consulting firm Knight Frank has advised BPG, while Pennycuick Collins acted for the landowner Gooch Estate in disposing of the land.
