Specialist residential developer – Court Collaboration – has received planning permission to deliver its latest 48-storey Build to Rent development at the former Irish Centre in Deritend, Birmingham – following approval by Birmingham City Council. Construction work is expected to start on site later this year.

The Build to Rent scheme, bounded by Stone Yard, Chapel House Street, and fronting the busy B4100 (High Street Deritend) will include 454 one- and two-bedroom city apartments. There will also be over 10,000 sq ft of amenity space. 

Amenities at the development will include a gym, cinema, sky lounge and bar, flexible co-working space and cycle parking. The scheme will also provide 3% on-site affordable housing.

“This development will provide high quality, contemporary city living in a prime location, complementing the surrounding area and numerous high-rise developments coming forward in Digbeth, including Connaught Square, Lunar Rise and our own, Stone Yard.

“With a high level of ongoing investment and regeneration in this area, as well as the wider city centre, we are thrilled to have received planning permission from Birmingham City Council and look forward to starting works on-site in due course.”

Alex Neale, CEO, Court Collaboration

The new development will not include any car parking spaces – which is in line with Court Collaboration’s commitment to future-proofing its developments, as well as with the city’s greener aspirations. Instead, the scheme will be fully accessible via the city’s growing public transport network – including the latest Metro extension along the High Street. High quality public realm will also be part of the Build to Rent scheme which will complement that being provided as part of the Metro extension.

Court Collaboration is a specialist residential developer based in Birmingham. They now own and manage over £1bn of residential real estate developments across the West Midlands and throughout the UK. In 2020, CEO and Founder – Anthony McCourt – was recognised as one of the top players in Midlands real estate as part of Insider’s ‘Property 50’.

Court Collaboration’s other scheme’s include Stone Yard in Digbeth – the Sunday Times’ ‘coolest places to live’, and New Garden Square which received planning in July 2020.
