Scheme being built at city’s Jewellery Quarter
A £125m deal to turn part of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter into new homes and retail has been given the green light by city planners.
Drawn up by local practice Glenn Howells Architects, the job will include over 300 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.
