Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter’s most ambitious project to date
The St Paul’s Quarter planning application has been approved by Birmingham City Council. This new district is the most ambitious regeneration project to date in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. In approving it, BCC cited the application’s rich architecture and permeability in opening up this gateway site.
The project weaves together listed and new buildings, continuing the tight grain of existing streets, courts and passages that characterises this unique part of the city.
This ambitious joint venture between Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital, will carefully transform a whole urban block providing north/south access and ultimately, an extension to the city centre.
Creating over 300 apartments and 100,00 sq ft of commercial space, the project is one of the largest planning permissions granted within a conservation area in Birmingham and provides much needed workspace, amenities and homes to this quarter of the city – a truly mixed-use scheme with space designed for small businesses, leisure and retail.
