PRESS RELEASE – 13th December 2017
Midland project for NE developer
A key site on the edge of Birmingham’s £1 billion southern gateway regeneration zone has been acquired by a Tyneside based property development company.
All Saints Living has bought Westminster Works and proposes creating 253, high quality one and two bedroomed apartments for private rent. A planning application has been lodged with the Birmingham City Council and a decision is expected early next year.
If approved, construction could be underway in the summer, with Kent based United Living selected as the construction partner.
Part of the High Street Group of Companies, the developer has just commenced work on Newcastle’s tallest building – the 26 storey Hadrian’s Tower. And with similar schemes in Milton Keynes, Warrington and Salford, the company is engaged in the creation of around 800 apartments on developments valued in excess of £200 million. The group posted profits of £26 million in 2016.
All Saints Living Director, Keith McDougall, said: “Located close to the proposed high-speed rail network linking Birmingham and London, Westminster Works is an ideal site that will offer city living within a vibrant new neighbourhood. I am sure there will be huge demand from people wanting to buy these homes and those wanting to rent them.”
Abandoned industrial buildings on the site will be demolished to make way for the eight storey structure and architects, Glancy Nicholls, has designed a building incorporating the material and craftsmanship which are the hallmarks of area’s trading past.
