Planning has been submitted for 400 new apartments on two derelict industrial sites in Digbeth, Birmingham.
ESRG’s plans include partial demolition, refurbishment and erection of new buildings at 234-236 Bradford Street, to create 162 one-bedroom and 131 two-bedroom flats and six ground floor commercial units. There will also be parking for 61 cars and 292 bikes in a complex ranging from four to eight storeys.
In a second project, the team are planning to carry out further demolition before constructing 148 apartments, three ground floor commercial units and 11 parking spaces at nearby 250 and 251 Bradford Street and its corner with Alcester Street. This element will range from four to nine storeys and comprise 91 one-bedroom and 57 two-bedroom apartments with parking for 150 bikes.
Neil Grinnall, Director commented, “The vast investment in recent years in Birmingham city centre has changed the face of a once industrial city. Digbeth will be the subject of ongoing redevelopment and the scale and location of proposed buildings and associated commercial and amenity spaces reflect this city aspiration.
Both schemes add to ESRG’s current project portfolio which includes major residential and split use developments in Poole, Birmingham and the USA.
