The mixed-use Digbeth scheme from Taylor Grange will see the S&K Buildings transformed into a BTR scheme of 479 apartments, with commercial units, amenities, public terraces & a new riverside walkway.

The visually pleasing S&K Building will be retained and refurbished before undergoing a 2-storey upward extension, with demolition across the site, and the formation of six blocks of 6-7 and 8-10 storeys.

Encompassing the emerging Rea Valley Urban Quarter, the project will provide a healthy combination of 1-3 bedroom apartments and duplexes, alongside a restaurant/bar, gym, and private amenity spaces, including courtyard(s), terraces and balconies.

A new tree-lined riverway public realm will be created adjacent to the River Rea, allowing for fluid connections between Cheapside and Bradford Street, with commercial units and public terraces along the way.

Approval is recommended here, subject to a S106 legal agreement to provide 48 affordable apartments; as well as the payment of c. £116K to cover the cost of two off-site bridge removals bounded by Moseley Street, Charles Henry Street & Rea Street South.

Should this be funded via other means, the money would be put into improving the public realm around the site.

Plans for S&K Buildings will be heard on December 9, 2021, at 11 am.

The Construction of The Mercian - October - November 2021

A large gallery of photos of the construction of the 132m The Mercian on Broad Street covering October and November from Stephen, Elliott and Daniel. The building is externally complete but with lighting only installed in the lower third it can look a little stark on the skyline at night just lately...

The mixed-use scheme, brought forward by Homes England as part of their Accelerated Delivery Pilot, is made up of two distinct land parcels on New Bond Street in the Bordesley area of the city.

The large-scale redevelopment will completely redefine the area into an inclusive & sustainable new canalside community, with the Grand Union Canal firmly at its heart.

Five buildings of up to 15 storeys, complete with 1-3 bedroom homes, commercial spaces and public and private amenity facilities, are to be built.

There is also a promise to provide a policy compliant 35% level of affordable housing.

With consent now granted, the site, subject to a tendering process, will be sold freehold to a developer intending to enter into a build contract for the site.

Works are expected to start in 2023 following a period of demolition of the remaining structures on-site, before completing in 2027.

Great night had by all at Cordia Blackswan's Fundraising party!

Even though their CEO Marcus was unwell and could not be there, Jess, Brigi and the wonderful team of Cordia Blackswan laid on a great party and fundraiser at their new Birmingham HQ.  

The old Lloyds Bank on Great Hampton Street was a fitting location for the 'spooky' theme with everyone getting into the spirit of things, literally!
