Connaught Square, Digbeth, Birmingham Green Light

We are delighted to confirm that Planning Consent has been secured for Connaught Square, Digbeth, Birmingham.

The scheme which has a gross development value in excess of £200 million, will create an entirely new destination within the city, comprising a vibrant mix of residential, commercial, retail and public space designed to enhance and further cement Digbeth’s fast emerging reputation as Birmingham’s Creative Quarter.

Project and Cost Management for the delivery of this amazing regeneration scheme will be provided by Fellows on behalf of our Client, Seven Capital.

The development will also form part of the city’s wider plans to regenerate Digbeth and help to provide a catalyst for wider investment for this Southern Gateway area of the city.

Due to the scale of the project, Connaught Square will be constructed in two phases. Once complete, it will feature a total of 770 spacious new apartments, including a 27-storey landmark tower, circa 42,000 sq ft of commercial space, a community gymnasium and boxing academy – all of which have been included as a result of community consultation.

Work on site is expected to begin in summer 2019 with the first phase expected to complete in March 2022 with hopes for the whole site to be completed by August 2023.

“Fellows offer a best in class service from a dedicated team of highly qualified (construction) professionals. A hugely experienced team with a rounded knowledge base provides us with the confidence to focus elsewhere in our business. Immediately accessible and always with a solution they are a pleasure to work with.”
