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.

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.

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.

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.yourplaceyourspace.net/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.

The Construction of One Centenary Way - April 2021

This build is going up fast now, hard to keep up! The steel structure is rising very apparently from all angles with the central core structure on pause while the rest of the building catches up. Great set of recent photos in this article and many more in the full construction gallery in the feature project.

APPROVED: Port Loop, Phase 3





Phase 3 of Port Loop - Birmingham's premier new island community - has been approved this morning by planning committee (01.04.21) .

The site will now be unlocked with the exciting delivery of 98 new canal-side homes, public and private green spaces, and the planting of over one hundred trees across the site.


dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Port Loop siteplan.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Composed of two housing ideologies, the dwellings will be arranged in 8 terrace blocks running parallel to the canal and Rotton Park Street. Each will be equipped with terraces & will be centred on two spacious internally shared courtyards.

They include 29 two & three storey factory-built ‘Town Houses’—a build already used in earlier phases, and a new one for Port Loop: 69 two & three storey factory-built ‘Row Houses’—all designed by London architecture studio, shedKM.

Significantly, a new section of the canal towpath will be opened up - and this will form a major part of the newly landscaped public realm for both residents and the public to enjoy.

Around 110 new trees will be planted around courtyard areas and within proximity of the dwellings; 13 will be planted beside the canal towpath—with the area set to include new seating, hedges, and other landscaping works.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="https://www.yourplaceyourspace.net/uploadedfiles/Port%20Loop%203A.png" />

Town House allows residents to choose their own internal layout, the number of bedrooms, and room sizes; Row House will equally be as customisable but will be smaller, simpler and more affordable.

Around 10% of new homes across the site already provide affordable housing provision, including here, and with more to come. Each of the 98 dwellings will also be presented with a single car parking space alongside secure storage for two bicycles.

Spanning 43-aces, this canal-side site, a mere 10-15 minute walk from the city centre, will soon offer up to 1,150 new homes, retail offerings, new stretches of unlocked canal towpath & leisure spaces.
