The overall development, which is just a short walk to the iconic Bullring, comprises 504 new homes and create a new residential community.  The development is located within the Southern Gateway £1 billion regeneration zone, which is part of the high speed rail network ‘HS2’ masterplan. The city’s vision for the redevelopment of the area is underpinned by improved transport links and strengthening the areas’ character to create a vibrant, liveable and well-connected part of the city centre and a major cultural destination.

Kent Street Baths is located in Southside and has emerged as a distinctive, culturally diverse quarter within Birmingham’s expanding city centre. The West Midlands site is split into two plots and features a pedestrian boulevard providing a true community feel to the area. Both plots contain flexible retail, leisure and commercial space to provide active street frontage and promote a superb lifestyle for the residents.

The scheme can be described as a family of buildings with subtle differences in detailing and tone which creates a varied and interesting urban streetscape.

Generous amenity spaces are a feature of living at Kent Street which include a series of uses from a gym, flexible offices and lounge access, all set within a private residents’ courtyard.  A wide range of commercial spaces are also available to both residents and the local community.

The site has been designed to be inclusive for all via foot, car or bicycle. Provision has been made for car parking and every apartment has access to a secure cycle rack. A highly considered block management strategy has been implemented, to ensure that the development maintains a quality feel and is an enjoyable place to live.
