Following a public consultation process, the plans outline how a major new mixed-use scheme, named New Garden Square, will regenerate the area.
The proposed scheme includes up to 400 residential apartments, 56,500m² of office space, potential for a 100-bed hotel and 2,400m² of retail space that can accommodate new bars, restaurants and convenience stores. The development retains the existing Grade II listed buildings fronting the Hagley Road.
At the heart of the proposal is a 180m x 30m landscaped garden square, comprising a series of interlinked gardens and mature trees, which will create public open spaces. There is also new car parking for up to 900 vehicles, maintaining the number of spaces currently available on the existing site.
Ralph Minott, Calthorpe Director of Development, said; “New Garden Square epitomises our vision to create thriving communities and the best places to live and work within the estate. The regeneration of the area to deliver a new vibrant mixed-use destination is fitting as we celebrate our 300th anniversary.”
