WCN Editorial Team 11 Jan 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based residential developer Court Collaboration has secured planning consent from the Birmingham City Council, UK to deliver a build-to-rent development at the former Irish Centre in Deritend.

The 48-storey residential scheme will stand in front of the B4100 (High Street Deritend) and will be bounded by Stone Yard, Chapel House Street.

It will feature 454 one- and two-bed city apartments with more than 10,000ft2 of amenity space.

The facility will have a flexible co-working space and cycle parking along with a gym, a cinema, a sky lounge and a bar.

Furthermore, the project will offer 3% on-site affordable housing.

To be in line with the city of Birmingham’s sustainable goals, the housing development will not include any car parking but it will be fully accessible via the city’s public transport network, including the Metro extension along the High Street.

Construction on the build-to-rent project is expected to begin later this year.

Court Collaboration CEO Alex Neale said: “This development will provide high quality, contemporary city living in a prime location, complementing the surrounding area and numerous high-rise developments coming forward in Digbeth, including Connaught Square, Lunar Rise and our own, Stone Yard.

“With a high level of ongoing investment and regeneration in this area, as well as the wider city centre, we are thrilled to have received planning permission from Birmingham City Council and look forward to starting works on-site in due course.”
