The joint venture – their fifth major Birmingham development – will now see the creation of a high-quality urban environment comprising 438 homes & a new green linear park.

The site, once occupied by Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College, fronts Belgrave Middleway and Haden Way and is bounded by Sherbourne Road and Balsall Heath Road.

With councillors voting through the plans, the site will now see 14 residential blocks within a mixture of 112 townhouses and 62 adjoining apartments.

Two apartment buildings of 4-7 & 4-12 storeys, containing 264 one & two-bedroom units, will be built at strategic positions overlooking Belgrave Middleway and Haden Circus.

219 one & 107 two-bed apartments along with 38 two, 62 three, and 12 four-bedroom houses, will be established in total – with 44 (10%) affordable units allocated.

Crucially, the outward-looking development, designed by Chetwoods Architects, will feature attractive private and shared courtyards, as well as a new public green linear park to complement the variety of low-rise townhouses and apartment blocks.

Two access points will be formed via Haden Way and Sherbourne Road, with parking for 263 cars alongside 17 motorcycle spaces and spaces for 670 cycles.

The dilapidated site will largely be demolished, with the exception of locally-listed Gunsmith House – which will be retained & converted into 3 apartments – and replaced with three 4-5 storey new builds set around a landscaped courtyard ‘oasis’.

Designed to give the look of three differing buildings, the site, which will feature two dual aspect rear wings and a range of energy-saving measures, will deliver 34 one, 44 two & 4 three-bedroom apartments, in sizes ranging from 39 to a very healthy 115 sq.m.

A communal lounge is set to be created, with many units having the added benefit of a balcony or terrace space.

The gem of the site, however, is unquestionably the heritage asset, Gunsmith House (below). The building is to be refurbished and a new roof installed to deliver 3 units across all floors.

C. 85 cycle spaces (100%) are to be allocated, as well as a small car park for seven to the rear of Gunsmith House. 5 affordable apartments at 50% of market value have also been agreed upon and will be provided.

** The site was recently occupied by 4 gunmakers involved in the making of various components of sporting guns. The former owner (Laybrook) has since moved them into adjoining listed buildings on Loveday Street, also in their ownership, thus safeguarding their future for years to come.

This Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital joint venture – their fifth major Birmingham development – would deliver a high-quality new urban environment with the delivery of 438 homes & a new green linear park.

Should the distinctive new plans receive the nod next week (October 14), the major scheme would see 14 residential blocks containing a mixture of 112 townhouses and 62 adjoining apartments.

Two apartment buildings, comprising 264 one & two-bedroom units, would also give rise to 4-7 and 4-12 storeys at strategic positions overlooking Belgrave Middleway and Haden Circus.

In total, the development proposes 219 one & 107 two-bed apartments along with 38 two, 62 three, and 12 four-bedroom houses – with 44 (10%) affordable units.

Crucially, the outward-looking development, designed by Chetwoods Architects, would feature attractive private and shared courtyards, as well as a new public green linear park to complement the mixture of low-rise townhouses and apartment blocks.

With two new access points created via Haden Way and Sherbourne Road, parking for 263 cars is to be provided alongside 17 motorcycle spaces and spaces for 670 cycles.

GALLIARD APSLEY PARTNERSHIP

The Galliard and Apsley partnership is firmly established in Birmingham. 

Having already completed B1 Birmingham for DWP, residential schemes at Soho Wharf – the largest Birmingham development today, and The Timber Yard in the Gay Village, are all advanced in their respective construction stage, with St. Paul’s Quarter, in the Jewellery Quarter, just around the corner.

Brought forward by the same team developing Apex Lofts, next door, Sapphire Court lies within the emerging Rea Valley Urban Quarter neighbourhood that openly supports well-designed, sustainable resi-led regeneration with a strong insistence on greenery.

H-shaped in design, Sapphire Court would facilitate two new entrances onto Warwick Street & Bradford Street, the formation of two large communal gardens & a carefully considered residential mix of 68 one & 98 two-bedroom apartments (1-4 persons), including 18 spacious duplexes.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/CGI%20-%20Sapphire%20Court%208.jpg" />

Predominately a car-free affair, the scheme would include 166 cycle spaces (100%), all within a vertical stacking system in the site's courtyard.

17 apartments have been agreed and are to be provided for low-cost home ownership at 20% discount on market value.

The existing site, containing three mismatched buildings (Sapphire Conference and Banqueting Suite; a single-storey brick build; and a two-storey clothing manufacturing building) would be demolished and relocated for the scheme to commence.

10m Group and the architects, Corstorphine + Wright, are also well advanced in its Apex Lofts project, next door - as seen at the bottom of the page.

Plans are recommended for approval and will be discussed at committee on October 14, at 11 am.
