Perry Barr Village Extra Care

A lasting legacy of the Birmingham 2022 Games

Part of a 1400-home masterplan, Plot 6 is one of the largest developments at the Perry Barr Residential Scheme in Birmingham. The eight-storey, mixed-use building provides 268 residential apartments for the extra-care market, alongside commercial units, communal spaces and activity areas. The scheme further comprises a large courtyard garden, additional rooftop gardens for its residents, and parking.

The scheme is part of the wider regeneration in the northwest of the city, which will deliver improved leisure and community facilities along with upgraded transport infrastructure- a lasting legacy of the Commonwealth 2022 games.

The design balances contemporary architecture and smart interventions with traditional values to create an accessible environment. The existing public realm breaks down existing barriers and improves links to the wider area.


The masterplan for the regeneration of Perry Barr has been an exciting and challenging project and is the catalyst for wider investment into the greater Perry Barr Area. Originally designed to house 6,500 athletes, para athletes and officials for the Birmingham 2022 commonwealth games, the new village was designed with flexibility, accessibility and adaptability in mind.

As a lasting legacy, when complete the masterplan will provide over 1400 much needed new homes across a range of tenures and housing typologies.

Each building and home is designed to achieve, if not exceed, the national space standards. They provide high quality internal and external amenity spaces and, in many cases, include private balconies and roof top resident gardens. These homes are designed to be adaptable to the accessible standards of building regulations Part M4(2) as a minimum.
