2 Snowhill Plaza is a 47-storey build-to-rent scheme comprising 462 new homes, an enhanced public realm, and commercial space.

Offering a fabric first approach with a lower carbon footprint, the placemaking scheme would offer a high-quality mix of one- to three-bedroom apartments, enhanced by a mixed-use amenity plinth, new walkable routes, and a commercial unit to Snow Hill Queensway (SHQ).

A lower-level plinth would incorporate a multi-levelled residential entrance to both SHQ and Weaman Street, facilitating a lobby, bicycle workshop, bicycle storage, plant and services space, and co-working spaces.

Additional vertical amenities, including pocket gardens and shared lounges, private classes, and community events, would be included at various levels via folds in the design. An opportunity also exists for a south-facing roof terrace that overlooks Birmingham, allowing for additional amenity.

A new walkable public connection would be formed, allowing direct access from SHQ to Weaman Street for the first time in many years. More to come.
