We are thrilled to confirm this week we have submitted plans to Birmingham City Council on behalf of our client Cole Waterhouse for Upper Trinity Street in Birmingham.

This unique and exciting mixed use development has been prepared in response to the Council’s vision to positively transform a tired forgotten area of Digbeth and to achieve a 24/7 Digbeth by creating a new cultural, commercial and residential neighbourhood.

The £260m scheme will consist of 6000sqm of creative, cultural and commercial spaces at ground level, 936 new urban homes at heights of up to 32 storeys, a 133 bed hotel along with a new public park with public art and a network of yards and squares. Named ‘Pump House Park’ after the former Victorian Pump House, this is just one of several examples where the considerable history of the area is remembered and celebrated by carefully weaving cultural details into the design of the scheme.

Upper Trinity Street will become a destination in itself connecting the existing canal network and proposed Skypark on Duddeston Viaduct to the rest of Digbeth.

Working with developer Cole Waterhouse who acquired the site at Upper Trinity Street last year, and collaborating with planning consultancy Barton Willmore and the Canal & River Trust this has been an incredible collective effort undertaking one of the most engaging community consultation programmes our practice has ever been involved in, to ensure the scheme retains and enhances the unique character and heritage of Digbeth.

We eagerly await a decision which is expected in the Autumn.
