Specialist residential developer, Court Collaboration, has been given the go-ahead to deliver its latest 48-storey Build-to-Rent development at the site of the former Irish Centre in Deritend, following approval by Birmingham City Council.
The residential scheme, bounded by Stone Yard, Chapel House Street and fronting the busy B4100 (High Street Deritend), will comprise 454 one and two-bed city apartments with over 10,000 sq ft of amenity space. The development will boast a gym, a cinema, a sky lounge and bar, as well as flexible co-working space and cycle parking. The scheme will also provide 3% on-site affordable housing.
In line with the city’s greener aspirations and to demonstrate Court’s commitment to future-proofing its developments, the development will not feature any car parking and will instead be fully accessible via the city’s growing public transport network, including the latest Metro extension along the High Street. As part of the scheme, high quality public realm to complement that being provided as part of the Metro extension will also be delivered.
Former Irish centre location with the new BTR building construction work is expected to commence on site later this year.
Alex Neale, CEO at Court Collaboration, 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.
