Green Light for Upper Trinity Street

Back to News & Insights

By Tony Mead – 23rd July 2021

We are delighted to announce that the Upper Trinity Street cultural, commercial and residential scheme in Digbeth, Birmingham has been given the green light by Birmingham City Council in a unanimous decision.

Designed by Corstorphine & Wright for our client Cole Waterhouse, Upper Trinity Street is being developed with planning consultancy Barton Willmore and the Canal & River Trust.

With sustainability at its core, the scheme will include 943 new homes, some with live-work space and roof gardens, a 133-bedroom hotel, 60,000 sq ft of flexible commercial space, car parking and large new areas of public realm across a network of landscaped yards, squares and hidden spaces.

Regularly featured on lists of the coolest neighbourhoods in the UK, Digbeth has grown to be a cultural and entertainment hub in the West Midlands. Upper Trinity Street will work in unison with its rich heritage and in line with the council’s ‘Digbeth Masterplan’. Corstorphine & Wright are proud to collaborate on this project and enhance what people love about Digbeth.

Work is expected to start in Summer 2022 and the first phases completing in 2025.
