Gough Street

Birmingham City Centre

The proposed redevelopment involves the demolition of a 1970’s built Birmingham United Services Club and construction of a contemporary multi-storey residential apartment building accommodating 43 1-bed and 30 2-bed apartments. The apartments are supported by 17 car parking spaces and 75 enclosed, secure cycle storage spaces both accessed directly from Gough Street.

The buildings scale and mass have been designed to respond to both the context of historic its neighbours and future larger contemporary developments, plus its city centre location, which calls for buildings of reasonable size. The proposed residential use of the site for Citizen Living is in accordance with Council Planning Policy, which promotes ‘City Living’ development in the area.
