Glasswater Locks To Officially Launch





Glasswater Locks, in Eastside, is Birmingham’s distinctive new canalside destination set to deliver seven new buildings ranging from one to 37-storeys.

The development officially launches on May 21 & 22.


dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/CGI%20-%20Glasswater%20Locks%20Updated%20Rendering3.jpg" />


Transforming a derelict site full of industrial heritage, Glasswater Locks is a phaseable placemaking regeneration that will deliver up to 753 stylish one to three-bedroom apartments and duplexes in buildings ranging from one to 37-storeys (123m).

The site – close to the forthcoming HS2 network, and the emerging Knowledge Quarter – will inject new life into the canal-side, with high-quality new public squares, and elevated shared podiums containing a mixture of alfresco restaurants, bars, and cafes.

Residents will have a canal-side club with elevated, residents-only courtyard gardens with 155m of canal-side frontages, lounges, 24-hour concierge, reading and co-working areas, games room, cinema room, and a state-of-the-art gymnasium.

Seven buildings will be built, starting with 59-bed Ashted Wharf and 60-bed Belmont Wharf – two nine-storey buildings that’ll feature one- and two-bedrooms and those impressive residents’ facilities listed above.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/CGI%20-%20Glasswater%20Locks%20Updated%20Rendering9.jpg" />

Subsequent buildings include Cardigan Wharf and Curzon Wharf – again, two nine-storey builds; 18-storey Cameo Works; and the signature 37-storey Glasswater Tower.

Up to 769 bicycles will be allocated, with underground parking for around 108, 15 disabled, and around 10 electric vehicle bays.

The development, which you can follow here with us, is being brought forward by St Joseph Homes, Berkeley Group's newest WM brand named after our 19th Century mayor, Joseph Chamberlain.

They follow the ethos, espoused by Chamberlain himself, that ‘inspiring public realm is the cornerstone of a happy, thriving community.’

Soho Wharf is a major canal-side scheme that will deliver 752 build-to-rent apartments and townhouses - and it is looking absolutely fantastic.

Construction of Soho Wharf - May 2022





Soho Wharf is a major canal-side scheme that will deliver 752 build-to-rent apartments and townhouses - and it is looking absolutely fantastic.

One of the largest brownfield redevelopment schemes in Birmingham, and in the UK, will help reinvigorate an area already undergoing immense changes.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/DJI_03234edit1.jpg" />

 

The Galliard & Apsley turnkey development, acquired by Swedish giant Heimstaden Bostad for £160m, will deliver 752 new apartments and townhouses in six new builds ranging from four to 14-storeys when it completes in early 2024.

Reinvigorating the 12-acre site and the wider community within the Greater Icknield Masterplan, Soho Wharf has been designed and master-planned by London-based architectural practice, Claridge Architects.

The site will present an attractive array of choices, including 102 carefully crafted two- and three-bedroom family townhouses, as well as 650 one- and two-bedroom apartments in a variety of tenures, with 64 on-site affordable units. 

With intimate green pockets, shared gardens, and public waterfront spaces, Soho Wharf includes around 10,000K SF of vibrant, public, and resident-friendly commercial at ground level. 

Linking the site will be two central public greens - making up 38% of the land - known as 'The Meadow' and 'Garden', which will serve as significant focal points at the heart of Soho Wharf. 

Another will be located canal-side, which will also see a new pedestrian bridge, connecting the site with the wider canal network and granting direct access to Birmingham city centre!

Introducing: Affinity Living Lancaster Wharf





Affinity Living Lancaster Wharf is a major build-to-rent (BTR) placemaking scheme of 266 one-and-two-bedroom apartments coming forward in the Gun Quarter.

With a contractor lined up, demolition imminent, and apartments now being marketed, new renderings of the development have been unveiled in recent days.


dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/hero-allw.jpg" />

The build-to-rent scheme, from Select Property Group’s Affinity Living brand, will feature a series of linked buildings of six to 23-storeys, positively reactivating the canal-side plot to cater to the demands of the Birmingham rental market.

Offering large, contemporary living spaces, with new hybrid ways of living and working, Lancaster Wharf will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and fully integrated high-spec kitchens, in addition to a multitude of amenities.

These include a state-of-the-art gymnasium, with an internal and external sixth-floor terrace area, basement cycle storage, co-working spaces, residents and TV lounge, and a spacious waterfront garden courtyard.

With a contractor appointed, to facilitate the start of works, a historic ornate gateway will be dismantled brick-by-brick, stored, and reinstalled at a later date, while the wider site, which includes the former Police Stores Building, will be demolished in the coming months ahead.

The Gothic on Great Hampton Street - just look at the detail in this wonderful redevelopment!





Work at The Gothic on Great Hampton Street is now well underway.  Let's take a look at the attention being given to retain the wonderful original victorian features of this famous Birmingham landmark.


At The Gothic on Great Hampton Street, a Grade II listed building dating back to the late 1870s, there is so much to take in and admire now that internal work on a number of magnificent homes is underway.

During 2020 and 2021, before work commenced and early in Cordia Blackswan's redevelopment of this wonderful building, we had the pleasure of visiting this Victorian Gem to see the treasures that had remained hidden for so long.

 

The windows of The Gothic - back in 2020/21

Of all the wonderful Gems to admire, both inside and outside, it was The Gothic's amazing windows which, for us, stole the show!

We marvelled at the craftmanship and passion that had gone into the structural shapes of these wonderful windows.

See the full article from July 2021 here...

 

And now - as the windows are going in (May 2022)

In May 2022, we were invited back to take a look at how work was progressing with the redevelopment, and most importantly for us, to see what had been done to those wonderful arched windows.

We have not been disappointed!

dndimg dndsrc="https://www.birminghamgems.com/uploadedfiles/IMG_6674b_GOTH.jpg" />

 

What about all that wonderful timber!

It's not just the windows though, take a look at the way much of the exquisite timber has been brought back to life and is on full display.

dndimg dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/IMG_6379b_GOTH.jpg" />

Here's what it was looking like pre-renovation.  What a great job done!

dndimg dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/IMG_6301b_GOTH.jpg" />

 

And now - wonderful wooden beams on show (May 2022)

dndimg dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/IMG_6560b_GOTH.jpg" />

Some of the original steel roof structure has also been incorporated into the restoration.

dndimg dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/IMG_6766b_GOTH.jpg" />

 

Go see for yourself!

What wonderful talking points they are for anyone fortunate enough to take ownership of one of these wonderful homes, 

Cordia Blackswan and the team are doing an absolutely brilliant job with the redevelopment of the building into a number of elegantly styled homes.

Camp Hill Gardens: Demolition Well Advanced





Demolition is well advanced at 193 Camp Hill, a long-standing industrial site once home to Sulzer.

The major placemaking scheme will positively rejuvenate the site with 563 new homes across six new buildings ranging from three to 26 storeys, establishing 'Camp Hill Gardens'.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/DEMO%20CHG%20193%20Camp%20Hill%20(2).jpg" />

The site will be developed by Goodstone Living, the UK build-to-rent (BTR) property arm of Australian mega-company, Macquarie Asset Management, for its first BTR development.

The placemaking scheme will revitalise the former industrial site with 563 apartments and townhouses across six new buildings varying between three to 26-storeys, all centred around one acre of private garden space.

The new community will benefit from a new public realm, with amenities including a rooftop bar and terraces, private dining, a fitness zone, a nursery, private gardens, and public commercial and business spaces, further nurturing Digbeth's live-work-play ethos.

Be sure to watch the development with us (Buildsweare & Itsyourbirmingham).
