HBD will transform two parcels of land formerly occupied by Sytner to make way for a new 414-home rental community (22 affordable).

Known as Neighbourhood, the new development will be spread across five new buildings – and styles – providing a rich array of one-, two- & three-bedroom apartments to cater to every lifestyle (208 one-bed, 185 two-bed, and 21 three-bedrooms; 1-5 persons).

BPN Architects has designed each building to acknowledge its location within an all-important conservation area, as well as facing onto the city fringes. Builds will start at three storeys within the Jewellery Quarter, before rising up to nine storeys facing onto the city.

Both residents and visitors will be able to take advantage of new public spaces and a bustling mixture of independent bars and eateries. There will be four commercial units (568 sqm) – three within the new publicly accessible courtyard, with the other fronting Newhall Hill – along with a new public realm.

A host of resident amenities include an on-site concierge, private gardens, five roof terraces, lounges, a gym, 320 bicycle spaces, and WFH areas within a double-height winter garden.
