Birmingham-based residential property developer, Hanehouse Developments has brought forward plans for a new residential scheme and public realm in Bradford Street, Digbeth.
The proposed scheme has been developed in consultation with Birmingham City Council and will look to advance a new public realm, beginning the process of connecting Lombard Street through to Green Street and onto Digbeth High Street.
This new public walkway is part of the wider Rea Valley Urban Quarter SPD that was adopted in October 2020.
A mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments will provide 130 high quality homes for a wide range of individual and family-led owner occupiers.
Ground floor commercial space will provide much needed active street frontage for Bradford Street, along with services and amenities for local residents.
Design methodology has focused on sustainability with substantial improvements being made over and above current building regulations.
The development is being led by Hanehouse Developments and a team including K4 Architects and planning consultants, PJ Planning.
Eamonn Minihane, Director of Hanehouse Developments, said: “The scheme design is sensitive to the existing fabric of Digbeth and its historic past, while also looking forward and supporting its ongoing regeneration.”
Hanehouse Developments was established in April 2020 by experienced property developers, Eamonn Minihane and Richard Whitehouse, alongside property and development finance expert, David Fair, to deliver high quality, innovative, inclusive, and sustainable development schemes in Birmingham, the Midlands and other strategic locations across the UK.
Following just over twelve months of trading in challenging circumstances, the company is looking to bring forward £120 million worth of residential development in Birmingham with an additional pipeline of over £150 million over the next 18 months.
