Port Loop, Birmingham

ON THIS PAGE
Contact us

On behalf of Places for People and Urban Splash, we're project managing Port Loop – one of the largest residential regeneration sites in Birmingham, set to transform a brownfield site into an urban island community. 

The project will redevelop and remediate 43 acres of land which will deliver 1,150 homes, a new leisure, sports and swimming centre, commercial and retail facilities, and supporting infrastructure. 

The development partners have a clear vision for the area and have consulted widely on the design to create a clear sense of identity and place which will make the most of the extensive canal network and links to central Birmingham.

Home owners will be offered a choice of modular or traditionally constructed two or three storey dwellings and apartments, a first for Birmingham. The delivery partnership and our client group is made up of Places for People, Urban Splash, Birmingham City Council and Canals and River Trust.

Phase 4

We're currently supporting the delivery of Phase 4 – 331 build-to-rent apartments, 2.1 acres of public park and a new canal bridge and towpath. 

As the first apartment-led phase, this is the anchor stage of the wider Port Loop development and integrates ‘Sky Gardens’ to create semi-external spaces with the circulation cores.

This required re-planning of the previous masterplan to provide for current demand and buyer expectations which our team managed via a Section 73 application.
