Cost£9.5m

The two phases of this project were completed over a period of six years. The initial 43 new homes for rent were the first new homes constructed by Birmingham city council for a generation. Keepmoat constructed these Code 4 new homes as part the Award winning inaugural BMHT programme. The second phase included a total of 49 new homes for sale and rent. These have been constructed by Kier.

In total 92 new homes have transformed this cleared residential site in the heart of the Kings Norton regeneration plan. Bespoke homes have been designed to address the site constraints. These include split level on phase 2 to mitigate the level changes, fly over units to hide parking and a range of dual frontage properties to enhance the street scene. Throughout consistent materials and details have been specified to tie the tenures and phases together.
