Great Charles Street, Birmingham by Moda Living

Urbanisation

Great Charles Street, Birmingham

After serving as Project Manager on their first Birmingham project, The Mercian, we are delighted to be joining our client Moda Living once again to develop a landmark residential development.

Set on a 2.6 acre brownfield site and undeveloped for over 50 years, we are working with Moda to transform the current Great Charles Street car park site in central Birmingham into a vibrant urban village, truly reflecting the character of the Jewellery Quarter Conservation Area in which it is located. This is an exciting opportunity to bridge the Jewellery Quarter with the city core, providing hundreds of homes to rent in a new thriving community.

Beyond a living space

Standing at 39-storeys high, the development will provide 722 new homes for rent, a gym, green spaces, roof terraces, communal lounges, co-working space and ground floor boutique retail and café-bars to offer next-generation living within the city. This heavily contributes to the site owner Birmingham City Council’s ‘Big City Plan’ to create 5,000 new homes whilst valuing the city’s heritage and cultural assets.

Solution

We tackled the issues of a large city centre site by managing the project team and developing a cost-effective and viable planning, design and procurement strategy.

Drawing on our extensive experience of working with tall buildings and leading teams, we ensured the tower was of an exceptionally high standard whilst still deliverable. We addressed technical challenges from the outset, ensuring that the development was viable and on track to join Birmingham's thriving skyline.

We managed multiple stakeholders, responding to their views and working closely with Birmingham City Council, the Jewellery Quarter Development Trust, the Colmore Business District, the Birmingham Civic Society, Local Councillors, local businesses and members of the public.
