The Timber Yard in Southside tops out! - Latest gallery update





Timber Yard has reached a construction milestone - it has topped out! The Galliard Homes & Apsley House Capital joint venture has already created a positive impact on the emerging Southside, as this update from Stephen shows.


Timber Yard is the first development in Birmingham by joint venture partners Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital.

The two build scheme, designed by Claridge Architects, will yield a total of 379 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, and will also include nine ground floor commercial units.

The builds, ranging from 6-14 storeys, are separated by two pocket gardens and a landscaped internal courtyard. 

On-site amenities include a concierge service, gym, screening room, residents’ club lounge and undercroft car parking for 95, plus space for 358 cycles.

The scheme has been backed by OakNorth and Urban Exposure. Completion is scheduled for October 2021.

HOW SYMPHONY HALL WILL LOOK ONCE FINISHED

The development will provide a state-of-the-art performance space to host 
free and affordable events, improved bars, cafes, seating and hospitality experiences. 

It will also become home for Symphony Hall's Learning and Participation programme, which will include spaces for teaching, performance, and rehearsals. The Box Office and welcome desk will also be relocated to a much more prominent position.

The new look will provide Symphony Hall with a curved sweep of the façade, centred on the Hall of Memory across the square. Two new entrances will be created, both providing quick and direct access from Centenary Square.

Upper Trinity Street, Digbeth: Plans revealed!





Huge plans have today surfaced for Upper Trinity Street in Digbeth

Click 'View full post' below for all the images for this new vibrant, creative, commercial and residential neighbourhood, which will play a vital part of Digbeth's wider regeneration.


Developer Cole Waterhouse and Corstorphine+Wright Architects have today released their vision for a new cultural, commercial and residential neighbourhood at Upper Trinity Street in Digbeth.

This vision is in direct response to Birmingham City Council's Curzon HS2 Masterplan - which can be viewed here - and the emerging Digbeth Masterplan, which sets out to work closely with the Council to compliment other changes coming to the area.

THE VISION

900 new homes in heights of up to 31 storeys, new creative, cultural and commercial spaces will be formed alongside a new public park, with artwork. Ambitious stuff!

ENRICHING DIGBETH

With Digbeth already a unique place to work, attention turns to turning it into an established place to live AND work. With its edginess, creative community, eclectic venues all within close proximity, this is what makes Digbeth cool!

Importantly, Cole Waterhouse and co have sought to capture all of this in their plans, and uncover the many historical layers that this area has to offer. 

To their almighty credit, the developer plans to bring these layers to the surface, with these long forgotten historical buildings now set to become the main focal point of this new development.

"Our vision for Upper Trinity Street taps into the uniqueness of Digbeth, creating a 24/7 community that harnesses the characteristics of ‘Digbethness’ and creates an attractive cultural-led neighbourhood to live, work and visit.

We want Upper Trinity Street to once again play its part in a vibrant Digbeth, delivering spaces for people to live, work, create and enjoy whilst respecting the existing built heritage of such as the Lock Keeper’s Cottage, Bowyer Street Pumping Station, Upper Trinity Street Supply Station, Dead Wax and the Clements Arms." - Cole Waterhouse.

PLANS

ADDERLEY YARD

This new dynamic, pedestrian friendly new urban space will provide a venue for leisure, events, eating and drinking. 

MAKERS YARD & PUMP HOUSE PASSAGE

The Makers Yard will become a place for working surrounded by flexible employment spaces.

Pump House Passage will provide a fluid pedestrian link connecting Adderley Yard and Pump House Park which itself will connect through to the canal network and connectivity from Liverpool Street to Bowyer Street.

PUMP HOUSE PARK

Not only is the Lock Keeper's Cottage and Pump House being retained, it has been meticulously planned to make it a prominent focal point of the new development.

Steeped in history, the area is to become a new urban public park and will deliver circa. 4,000 square metres of public realm.

SKYPARK

A forward thinking one this.

Running along Upper Trinity Street, the Skypark will naturally form a southern anchor for 'The Brummie Highline', a proposal being brought forward and led by the City Council in the years to come, with the aim of transforming Digbeth and of course, Birmingham.

Plans will include a connection between the site and the canal network, with vital pedestrian and cycle routes into the City Centre.

WHAT NEXT?

The developer, architects and Planning Officers at Birmingham City Council will discuss the plans, a few tweaks will inevitably take place, before a Full Planning application is submitted in the very near future.

As ever, we'll be sure to keep you in the loop every step of the way.
