Glancy Nicholls Architects were appointed as the Executive Architect for the residential redevelopment of the former Birmingham City University campus in Perry Barr. Additionally, we provided detailed designs for a number of plots and the delivery of the site’s Later Living provision.
Working closely with the City’s planning and fellow consultant teams, our design is the catalyst for the greater regeneration of the Perry Barr area. The scheme looks to provide over 1,400 new residences, including amenity and recreation areas, to create a new and vibrant community for those living in the neighbourhood, as well as provide facilities for the greater Perry Barr area.
The scheme boosts inclusivity in Birmingham, with sustainable design and huge transport investment, spearheading resident behavioural change to progress towards a low carbon future. It raises the aspiration of local inner city living, reducing the carbon footprint to provide efficient and sustainable living. The scheme offers a mix of tenures to meet housing needs, including market sale and rent, and affordable and extra care units, all catering to the formation of a diverse new community. It will also benefit from the new public transport links, including improvements to the Perry Barr train station, together with a new bus interchange, along with Sprint routes that are planned to stop at the gateway into the site.
