Legge Lane

Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham

The project involves the careful redevelopment of a site within Birminghams famous Jewellery Quarter Conservation Area.

The site has remained unused since it ceased industrial use in the 1970’s with only two very dilapidated structures remaining on site from the former series of brass works that operated there including Albion Works and Wellington Works.

The redevelopment for Citizen Living proposes a complex of residential apartment buildings set around three courtyards and includes the retention and restoration of the former Wellington Works building facing onto Legge Lane.

 

Full Planning Permission has been granted for the project. Technical Design work stage is now in porgress with work due to start on site in early 2017.
