Wates Construction has signed a £20.2m contract to build a high-rise block of flats in Birmingham.
Regal (West Point) Ltd’s new Left Bank residential tower will rise to 22 storeys and house 189 apartments, with retail space on the ground floor.
Designed by Glancy Nicholls Architects, the 11,905 m2 Left Bank development is on Birmingham’s Broad Street. Work is expected to start this month and be completed by summer 2018.
Elsewhere in the city, Wates is already building a speculative office development at Phoenix House on Newhall Street for Ardstone Capital and has recently comp;leted the development of Eastside City Park and the fit-out of Gowling WLG’s new premises at Two Snowhill.
Phil Harrison, managing director of Wates Construction Midlands & North, said: “The scale of investment that Birmingham is currently experiencing is an indicator of ever-growing developer confidence and it demonstrates the city’s integral contributions to the strength of both the regional and national economies.
“Wates’ presence in Birmingham has seen us lead some incredible projects over the years and our appointment to the new Left Bank development once again brings to the fore our team’s market leading expertise.”
