We’re delighted to have received unanimous approval at Planning Committee this morning for our Leopold Works residential development in Birmingham.
The project will develop a long vacant site in south Digbeth, within the Rea Valley Urban Quarter. The 10-storey building has been designed to accommodate 70, one, two and three bedroom apartments. Many dwellings have private external terraces with the upper storey dwellings having large westerly facing terraces with great views of the city centre.
The building will be clad in brick and feature recessed panels with a Celtic knot pattern in textured brickwork in reference to the area’s Irish heritage. Lines of burnished brass cladding panels feature on the façade identifying the ground floor entrances. Brass has been used in reference to the chandelier and gas fitting manufacturer which once stood on the site, which also gave its Leopold Works name to the development.
