Originally brought forward by Blackswan Property (now Cordia Blackswan) and designed by Glancy Nicholls Architects, the Pitsford Street site was recently purchased by Legal & General, on behalf of its BTR Access Development Partnership - a Joint Venture between L&G Capital & PGGM.

With the project now under construction. Sir Robert McAlpine (SRM) will act as developer on the development. Here are the renderings:

The refurbishment of the former Municipal Bank (now The Exchange) - February 2021

For much of the past year, Three Centenary Way (the former Municipal Bank) has been hidden behind protective coverings. With these now largely removed, we have been given the first glimpse of this immaculate building since it has been cleaned.  Now in University of Birmingham hands, we can see that considerable progress has been made.

With these now largely removed, we have been given the first glimpse of this immaculate building since it has been cleaned.  Now in University of Birmingham hands, we can see that considerable progress has been made.


The following gallery takes a look at how things have progressed over the past 12 months.

Selly Oak Student Scheme: Amended Plans





REVISED plans have gone in for a 523 bed canal-side student redevelopment on Elliott Road, Selly Oak.

With a new architect also on board, the scheme has been vastly improved to connect to arguably Birmingham’s greatest asset - its canal.


dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/selly%20oak%20elliott%20road.png" />

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Selly%20Oak,%20Elliot%20Road%207.jpg" />

Located at Selly Oak Industrial Estate, Units 5-8, Elliott Road, the revised proposal - brought forward by Watkins Jones Group - will see the site reconnect with arguably Birmingham’s biggest asset - its canal, through the demolition of vacant industrial builds (as seen above) before redevelopment can deliver:

  • Part 5-8 storey accommodation;
  • 523 student beds (135 studios/388 clusters);
  • 11 contemporary townhouses along Elliott Road;
  • Central courtyard gardens;
  • Secure indoor & outdoor amenity spaces;
  • Zero parking/ 128 cycles;
  • NEW fluid connections to the canal towpath and beyond.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Selly%20Oak,%20Elliott%20Road%20GHA%20(2).png" />

With a new design team in place, Glenn Howells Architects & Layer Studio Landscape set about delivering on three fundamental principles as they redesigned the scheme. These are:

  • Establishing a fluid connection to the Canal

  • Creating a green campus

  • Providing connected routes all around the site

An expansive courtyard garden will become the beating heart of the scheme, providing students with ample space to study and relax, or simply to collect their bike before venturing out and about. 

Lively amenity spaces (gym, lounges and study spaces) will be at ground floor level, with the area set to bring much-needed activity and interest to the canal system and its new area of public realm.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Selly%20Oak,%20Elliott%20Road%20GHA%20(6).jpg" />

Eleven contemporary townhouses will replace vacant warehouse units, and these will be positioned along Elliott Road - each purposely designed in response to the scale and context of the neighbouring area.

Before & after:

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.freetimepays.com/uploadedfiles/Selly%20Oak,%20Elliott%20Road%20GHA%20(4).png" />

With the shock refusal of The Triangle (student development) site nearby, a student needs assessment document has been added to the application, fully outlining the significant demand for PBSA, not just in Selly Oak, but across the city.

Fresh Student Living - formed in 2010 by Watkins Jones Group - will operate the scheme if/when the scheme gets the go-ahead in the coming months. Certainly one to keep an eye on!
