Kent Street Residence, Birmingham

About the Project

This site has 98 units over 8 storeys, comprising 1 and 2 bedroomed apartments in an ideal Birmingham City Centre location, with an estimated GDV of £19m.

The site extends to approximately 2.47 acres (1 hectare) and is bounded by Kent Street, Bromsgrove Street, Gooch Street North, Wrentham Street and Henstead Street. The site is split into two plots (1 & 2) by a new pedestrian street which connects Kent Street to part-way along Henstead Street.

Our building is located within the Southern Gateway £1 billion regeneration zone, which has been brought forward as part of the high speed rail network ‘HS2’ masterplan.

Kent Street Residence will provide the residents with a private courtyard garden, roof terrace and series of ‘sky gardens’ which can be enjoyed from every floor. These contribute to the visual aesthetic of the façade design whilst improving the natural light within the courtyard space. The plot will contain flexible retail/leisure/ commercial space to provide active street frontage and promote a healthy, diverse and sociable space for the residents and local community.

Gavin Fraser, MD of High Street Residential, highlights why now is the right time to invest in Birmingham
