The third phase of our masterplan for Port Loop has been given the go ahead with work due to start in early Summer. Surrounded by historic canal and just a fifteen-minute walk from Birmingham city centre, this transformational new neighbourhood is already proving to be a sustainable and healthy place to live. With the first phase complete, the new green and blue spaces have proved invaluable to homeowners and the local community during the lock-down.
Adam Willetts, Project Director for Port Loop, said:
“We’re very excited to move forward with this next phase at Port Loop and introduce Row House to the neighbourhood. The past year has made a lot of people rethink what they look for in a new home, with green space and flexible living top of many people’s wish lists; both of which are key characteristics of life at Port Loop.”
Glenn Howells, Partner at Glenn Howells Architects, said:
“We are delighted to be masterplanning this important and vibrant project in Birmingham, bringing Port Loop and the canal back to life and providing homes and green community spaces within walking and cycling distance of the city centre.”
In total, Port Loop will deliver 1,150 new homes, in addition to new retail and leisure spaces. The Floating Front Room – an outdoor coffee shop on the canal – is already open at Port Loop, as is YARD, Birmingham’s first Art House.
