The Irish Centre is located in Digbeth in Birmingham, with the Bullring Trading Estate to the east and the Stone Yard, another High Street Group project, adjacent to the development. The development sits in a prime location, only a short walking distance to the city centre with easy accessibility to numerous transport links and is located opposite the Digbeth Conservation area as well as the trendy Custard Factory.
The scheme will see the creation of a residential skyscraper consisting of 454 units. The Irish Centre will be the highest of a series of tall buildings which will form the spine of the Deritend High Street leading to the city centre. At the core of the Rea Valley urban quarter will be a new residential neighbourhood, supported by a mix of uses to create an attractive and appealing place to live. Varied housing types, sizes and tenures will attract a diverse demographic to create a balanced and vibrant community.
Whilst the opportunity to address public realm and landscape on this restricted site is challenging, the architects have been working to develop a scheme which relates to both the area’s heritage and to the surrounding public realm.
The development will also enjoy the convenience of the significant commercial offerings of the neighbouring Stone Yard.
Residents of this professionally managed building will be able to make use of a range of amenities, including a rooftop bar on the 48th floor which promises to showcase some of the most spectacular views in the West Midlands.
