Thirty flats to be built on derelict Jew­ellery Quar­ter site

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

A DERELICT site in the Jew­ellery Quar­ter which was once due to house a new ho­tel is the lat­est to be re­gen­er­ated with new flats.

The plot, on the cor­ner of Al­bion Street and Carver Street, sits be­hind the Pig & Tail bar which opened last sum­mer.

Com­plex De­vel­op­ment Projects is be­hind the £7.8 mil­lion project which will have 30 apart­ments rang­ing from one to three bed­rooms.

Work is due to start in early 2018 and is ex­pected to take 12 months to com­plete.

The site has been derelict for many years after con­struc­tion of a new ho­tel was aban­doned.

Ian Harra­bin, di­rec­tor with Com­plex De­vel­op­ment Projects, said: “We see this as a very valu­able ad­di­tion to the Jew­ellery Quar­ter and of­fer­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent.

“This part of the quar­ter is cur­rently un­der­go­ing sub­stan­tial re­gen­er­a­tion with sev­eral schemes un­der way but there are not many of­fer­ing the size of ac­com­mo­da­tion we are cre­at­ing and it is im­por­tant to have a mix in the area.

“The mar­ket is strong with a high level of lo­cal in­ter­est but there is also con­sid­er­able ac­tiv­ity from buy­ers and in­vestors from out­side the area who see the unique char­ac­ter of the Jew­ellery Quar­ter along with the po­ten­tial, part of which is be­ing fired by the ar­rival of HS2.”

Com­plex De­vel­op­ment Projects, which is based in Coven­try and Lon­don, is the firm be­hind the FarGo Vil­lage cre­ative quar­ter and the Elec­tric Wharf live-work de­vel­op­ment in Coven­try.
