Sir Robert McAlpine Capital Ventures (SRMCV) releases new drone footage of its ongoing Hockley Mills development in Birmingham’s Jewellery quarter. Construction began in January 2021 after SRMCV secured a £100m forward funding deal with Legal & General for the development and appointed sister company, Sir Robert McAlpine, as contractor.

Once the Hockley Mills development is complete, Goodsyard will deliver 395 Build to Rent homes – a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments alongside a new entrance to the Jewellery Quarter train station, and 28,000 sq ft of flexible commercial space for retail, leisure and offices. Section A, the first stage of the project which includes 205 apartments, and the commercial space will be completed in early Summer 2023. This will be followed by the completion of Section B, which will see the remaining 190 apartments completed in Autumn 2023.

“We’re really pleased to be able to share the project’s progress to date with the wider Birmingham community. We know this is an important development for the area, and it’s great to have this chance to celebrate the progress made this year and start looking forward to the completed Goodsyard in 2023.”
