Smallbrook Queensway: The Development

Smallbrook Queensway is to be demolished and reimagined with a three-phase residential-led, mixed-use development of up to 1750 new homes in three buildings of 44, 48 & 56-storeys.

Hybrid plans (full and outline) include full and detailed proposals for a new 48-storey residential tower in Phase one; with outline plans for 44 & 56-storey towers later on down the line (1000+ homes).

Phase one – closest to Bullring – will accommodate 571 Build to Rent (BTR) apartments, sat above an eclectic array of lower-level retail, commercial & leisure.

Seen as a physical barrier between two vibrant areas of the city, the aim of SBQ is to breathe new life into the tired site; reinventing & reconnecting it with the city through new homes & unlocking disconnected areas with new vibrant ground floor uses.

A comprehensive public realm will also be implemented, helping to green the city's core and enhance attractive new ties with the nearby Chinese Quarter, Gay Village, the emerging Smithfield district, and also unlocking development sites next door.

An all-electric affair that will incorporate renewable sources to achieve high standards of energy efficiency, SBQ will act as a catalyst for future development and investment in the area, providing a more aesthetic environment.
