Working closely with the site owner, Birmingham City Council, Apache and development partner Moda’s plans for the Jewellery Quarter will transform the 2.6-acre, brownfield site into a neighbourhood with 722 new homes for rent.
Forming part of the historic Jewellery Quarter, the site was identified as an ‘opportunity for change’ by Birmingham City Council, having remained undeveloped for over 50 years. The significance and heritage of the site has been carefully reflected in the plans, with the distinctiveness and character of the Jewellery Quarter reflected in ground floorplans for boutique retail, independent café-bars and restaurants, health and wellbeing amenities, and workspace. Complemented by sleek and modern design, the corner of Great Charles Street and Livery Street will feature a 39 storey building, contributing to a sense of arrival around Snow Hill Station
Residents would also be provided with co-working spaces, a gym and 24-hour concierge. The development will also feature new public amenities and activate Lionel Street with new shops and commercial space.
Subject to planning, it will be Apache’s second site under development in the city, after ‘The Mercian’ on Broad Street.
