An elegantly crafted red brick-terracotta design of the new student housing residence at Dogpool Lane responds to several key local landmarks, including the red brick Selly Park Church and Dogpool Lane Hotel.
The project, which achieved planning this week, will provide students with an attractive place to live, study and socialise in a healthy and sustainable environment. It also reinstates a piece of under-utilised green space as a matured setting for the building for both students and the local community to enjoy.
The scheme has been a culmination of the many lessons learnt and experiences working with our long-standing client Alumno, and we believe this will not only provide a much needed and sustainable home to embed students in the wider community, but also a catalyst for regenerating this local neighbourhood.
Alumno’s Managing Director, David Campbell said
“I’m delighted that we have been granted planning permission to develop this site on Dogpool Road, which will improve the local area visually, provide an economic boost to local businesses and deliver much needed accommodation for Birmingham’s growing student population. As with all our developments, we have worked closely with the surrounding community and local authority to ensure the scheme enhances this vibrant area.”
Alumno plan to have the new building completed for the 2023 student in-take.
