Westminster Works

Loft living in the heart of industrial Birmingham

Westminster Works is a brand-new, luxury residential development on a brownfield site in Digbeth, which received planning approval in May 2018. Situated on derelict manufacturing land adjacent to the Paragon Hotel, this proposal will revive a previously declined area of Digbeth through considered detailing, reflective massing and a celebration of material and craftsmanship; hallmarks of Digbeth’s trading past.

This proposal brings 222 units of 1 and 2-bedroom accommodation, high-quality residents’ amenity space and city-centre parking that, in combination, seek to satisfy a great demand in this area of Birmingham.

The development reveres this area’s industrial heritage, seeking to re-establish the warehouse architecture seen in much of Digbeth’s urban grain and land use.

The use of masonry provides a distinctive building, taking focus from its prominent red brick neighbours. By using proportions familiar to the area yet providing an architecture for living with close links to the expansive transport links and local amenities, Westminster Works offers much for this part of Birmingham.
