Approval For 51 Storey One Eastside





51-storey (525 ft) One Eastside has been approved again—four months after the previous consent was quashed for failing to mention an objection in its original report.

The landmark Court Collaboration development can finally get underway, subject to a Section 106 legal agreement.

One Eastside will deliver three builds containing a 2, 16 (51m) & a 51 storey (155.145m) skyscraper on vacant brownfield land at the corner of Jennens Road and James Watt Queensway, comprising 667 one- and two-bedroom apartments, and a two-storey courtyard pavilion.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/One eastside.png" />

With its minimalist white fluted appearance, complete with deep reveals & modern yet classic grid design, Glancy Nicholls’ One Eastside design will immediately become the largest structure in the city, conquering top spot and knocking BT Tower (151m) - who’s held that mantle for over fifty years - off its perch and into second.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Artist Impressions of One Eastside (2).jpg" />

357 PRS one & 310 two-bedroom open-plan apartments will be provided, with sizes ranging from 38.2-71.36 sqm. Twenty apartments will be allocated for ‘affordable housing’ and these will be available at 20 per cent below local market value in perpetuity.

All three buildings, including the pavilion, will feature a high quality range of residential amenity in the form of co-working spaces, cafe/retail areas, meeting rooms, lounges, roof terrace, residents’ lounge, games room and private dining areas.

An expansive 3,200 square metre landscaped courtyard garden will be positioned between both towers, supporting yet more amenity space.

No car parking provision has been allocated given the location of the development; however, this will be mitigated with 132 secure cycle spaces.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Artist Impressions of One Eastside (3).png" />

The development was not without its objections. LaSalle Investment & The Victorian Society, once again, objected on the basis that the site would diminish key heritage buildings such as Curzon Street station, Methodist Central Hall and Victoria Law Courts - despite the former funding a building next door that dwarfs most of these.

Planning officers, recommending the scheme for approval before the committee meeting, accepted that, yes, a 51 storey would naturally harm one's surroundings but, with full objections & worries fully assessed, the substantial wider public benefits were considered to outweigh the harm from any such impacts.

Birmingham Health Innovation Campus (BHIC) is set to become a world-leading life sciences campus after a hybrid application was approved by Birmingham City Council.

Full Planning was comprehensively granted for No.1 BHIC, together with outline consent for upcoming plots 2-5.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Birmingham%20Health%20Campus%20-%20Phase%201.png" />

Opening in 2023, the first phase will see the delivery of a 130,000 sq ft state-of-the-art office & research development building–positioned to the east of Aston Webb Boulevard and the west of the Worcester & Birmingham Canal–providing a high-quality cluster for health excellence, including biopharma, medtech, precision medicine and genomics.

Designed around the notion of an 'ordered bookshelf, it will become home to the University of Birmingham's Precision Health Technologies Accelerator (PHTA) for start-ups, providing incubation space, wet and dry labs, clean rooms, prototyping and maker space.

This will offer close, direct access to the University's clinical trials ecosystem and research capabilities, and will provide a flawless setting to scale ground-breaking innovations for rapid adoption into the healthcare system.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BHIC 1.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Support facilities will see a ground floor café space, events and meeting spaces, with a central green parkland & pond, a temporary surface level car park for 258, motorcycle parking for five & outdoor spaces for 60+ cycles.

Pedestrian & cycle links will, too, be formed, alongside the formation of a new spine road connection to the Queen Elizabeth Island roundabout.

BIRMINGHAM HEALTH INNOVATION CAMPUS

The 10-year masterplan is being brought forward between the University of Birmingham, as landowner, and Bruntwood SciTech, in partnership with Birmingham Health Partners (University of Birmingham, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust & Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust). 

BHIC will become the regions only dedicated health and life sciences park, providing pioneering facilities within the heart of a cluster of healthcare excellence, bringing together researchers, clinicians, policy makers and industry to rapidly translate scientific and clinical insights into patient benefit and economic growth.

It is projected that up to 10,000 new jobs will be created, alongside the delivery of an extra (Plots 2-5) 700,000 sq ft state-of-the-art lab, office and incubation space acting as a catalyst for the growth of the Midlands’ life sciences sector.

PHASES 2-5

Five new buildings of up to eight storeys are reserved for future phases, with a 1333 space multi-storey car park (MSCP) integrated for good measure.

These builds could well see innovative health and life sciences businesses take up pre-lets or co-locate at the heart of the BHP ecosystem. The potential is enormous.

St. Paul's Quarter Breaks Ground in the JQ





A ground breaking ceremony has formally taken place at St. Paul's Quarter, Northwood Street, Jewellery Quarter - the largest development within the Conservation Area, signalling a start in construction on the £125m+ scheme.


dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/St%20Pauls%20Q%202.jpg" />

The significant four-acre site - formerly of AE Harris and once home to James Watt - is being brought forward by a Galliard Homes & Apsley House Capital Joint Venture.

Designed & master-planned by Glenn Howells Architects, it will become a mixed-use destination containing 305 new homes–including lofts, townhouses and duplexes–and circa 100,000 sq ft of commercial, retail & affordable business space across 20 buildings between two and five storeys.

The JV follows in the footsteps of Timber Yard and Soho Wharf - both under construction - and the recently proposed Belgrave Middleway, with the intention of providing thousands of high-end homes in the city.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Harpers%20Hill%209.png" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/St Pauls Q 1.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A chunk of the site’s heritage will be meticulously maintained - two of which are Grade II listed buildings (109 Northwood St & 199 Newhall Street), while redundant factory buildings, deemed as having no architectural merit, have already been demolished.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/St%20Pauls%20Quarter..jpg" />

Northwood Street, partially closed to the public, will also be reopened to pedestrians for the first time in well over 20 years. A new street, called Harpers Hill, will be formed and will stretch from Newhall Street into the heart of the Jewellery Quarter.

A new public square will then be incorporated, animated by vibrant shops, bars and restaurants.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Harpers%20Hill%205.png" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Harpers%20Hill%201.png" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Harpers%20Hill%203.png" />

44 car parking spaces will be provided alongside space for circa. 326 cycles.

AE Harris had operated on the site since 1964 but now employs 37 people and only ever used a third of the site. They have since moved to Frankley, having accepted that modern manufacturing methods do not meet their requirements.
