Scheme being built in city’s Jewellery Quarter
A £125m deal to turn part of Birmingham’s jewellery district into new more than 300 homes and retail has been given the green light by city planners.
Drawn up by local practice Glenn Howells Architects, the job will include the homes along with office, leisure and retail space.
It is being developed by a joint venture between Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital and will built on the site of the former AE Harris factory, an engineer which has been based at the site in Northwood Street since 1964 but will relocate to another part of the city.
The site includes two grade II listed buildings which will be preserved. The scheme is expected to take four years to complete.
Work is due to start early next year and will involve building 20 buildings between two and five storeys.
Galliard’s tie-up with Apsley House will complete work on its Timber Yard scheme in Birmingham’s Chinese quarter, providing 379 homes, in the fourth quarter of 2021.
