Port Loop is a major development being delivered by Places for People and Urban Splash in association with Birmingham City Council and the Canal & River Trust. GHA are working alongside architects Maccreanor Lavington, Shedkm and Grant Associates to develop detailed proposals for this 3.15 hectare site near Birmingham city centre.

The first phase of the project contains family homes that range from two-bedrooms up to five-bedrooms in a mix of 117 terraced houses and 90 apartments. Each house benefits from a private garden terrace or access to a private courtyard. All homes benefit from an exciting relationship with the canal and are also located beside two new public parks and a canalside square.

Proposals are centred around the reuse of existing assets and establishing a series of typologies that will help establish the site’s character and identity. A unique manifesto for the site has been developed, outlining "10 Rules to Live and Design By" that will inform the future development.
