The scheme for Calthorpe Estates includes 50 new student residential units across five floors above a large ground floor retail unit. The site’s proximity to local universities such as the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University’s South Campus, as well as Aston University, gives credence to the plot being developed for student accommodation.
Sitting on a prominent corner site of the Calthorpe Estate, within the Edgbaston Conservation Area, the scheme is positioned along the main route for commuters travelling between busy Fiveways station and Birmingham city centre. The retail units provide positive active frontage along the Islington Row Middleway and George Road, creating vibrant transactions at pedestrian level.
The scheme was granted Planning Approval by Birmingham City Council in June 2015 and the project was successfully handed over in July 2017.
