Birmingham-based specialist residential developer, Court Collaboration, has been given the go-ahead to deliver its latest Build-to-Rent development following approval by Birmingham City Council.
Located at the site of the former Irish Centre in Deritend, the residential scheme will comprise of 454 one and two-bed city apartments with over 10,000 sq ft of amenity space. The development will include 3% of on-site affordable housing and will boast a gym, a cinema, a sky lounge and bar, as well as flexible co-working space and cycle parking.
In line with the city’s greener aspirations, Court Collaboration has said that the development will not feature any car parking and will instead be fully accessible via the city’s growing public transport network.
Commenting on the new scheme, 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.
“With a high level of ongoing investment and regeneration in this area, as well as the wider city centre, we are thrilled to have received planning permission from Birmingham City Council and look forward to starting works on-site in due course.”
Court Collaboration currently has 15 active developments across Birmingham, Leeds, Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton, bringing a total of £1 billion worth of residential real estate developments across the West Midlands and throughout the UK.
Construction on the Deritend scheme is expected to commence on-site later this year.
