#TBT: Biennial Development Briefing 2017

News Categories: aspirefutureleaders

With a month having passed since the last  Biennial Development Briefing, the Infrastructure Committee have been reflecting on the event, the conclusions drawn and the way the city’s future continues to be shaped with a handful of new developments having been announced in the last few weeks.

We were hugely pleased with the turn out on the night and even more so when we saw the ongoing interest in the material produced for the event so we’ve decided to compile all of the most useful information and interesting facts together in one place…

One of the conclusions from the presentation was that Birmingham is an evolving city and new development proposals are constantly being announced, with no sign of this abating any time soon.
Just to reiterate this point, we wanted to share a couple of recent proposals that have been announced recently:
• Bishopsgate; a proposal by Court Collaboration for a student residential scheme just off Broad Street at the former Nautical Club. The development will comprise 290 bedrooms across a part 10 storey and part 15 storey block.

• Land at Vesey Street, Lench Street, Lancaster Street and Lancaster Circus; a scheme by Lench Trust and ES Lancaster Birmingham to redevelop a former car park for 1,023 bedroom student accommodation which will include 9, 13 and 24 storey towers.

Both of these are student residential schemes, which is indicative of the ongoing popularity and demand in the city for these types of developments. It is interesting also to note that the student accommodation proposals appear to be spreading across Birmingham centre, not just in and around St George and St Chads.
