£330m Birmingham New Garden Square Gets Go Ahead

The first stage of the New Garden Square regeneration scheme in Edgbaston, Birmingham, has received consent from Birmingham City Council.

New Garden Square will initially provide 165,000 sq ft of grade A office accommodation and ultimately 500,000 sq ft plus 400 apartments, 2,400 sq ft of retail and leisure and 900 parking spaces. The scheme is a partnership between property and development company Calthorpe Estates and U+I. It is notable for its ‘botanical’ concept with high quality gardens and public squares at the heart of the development plus the provision of terraces and roof gardens to enhance the working environment.

Paul Patenall, Projects Director at U+I, said: “Not only will New Garden Square extend the city’s core and create a new business destination, it will also attract significant investment and generate jobs. The impact of this landmark mixed-use scheme will be evident for generations to come.”

Birmingham has seen a substantial number of major city centre development schemes in recent years so this scheme at Edgbaston, away from the immediate core area, perhaps marks something of a change in developer focus in the city. Edgbaston is already a popular commercial and residential area and is to benefit further from the extension of the city’s tram network.
