Investor, developer and operator Moda Group submits detailed proposals for a new neighbourhood in Edgbaston, as part of the New Garden Square masterplan. Plans were submitted in partnership with landowner Calthorpe Estates.

Proposals will see the delivery of 462 homes – a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in a 37-storey building with an innovative ‘stepped bar’ design. Tenancies will be available for up to three years.

Amenities include a roof terrace, 24-hour gym, co-working space, resident lounges and 230 new cycle parking spaces. 

“We are delighted to see the planning submission for further regeneration of the New Garden Square land, and the next phase of our partnership with Moda Living. The New Garden Square masterplan reinforces our commitment to Birmingham’s Future City framework, putting residential and business communities at the heart of our vision for Edgbaston by ensuring green and active neighbourhoods for multi-generational living, health and wellbeing.” 

Ralph Minott, Masterplanning and Development Director, Calthorpe Estates

The first phase of the masterplan is currently under construction and will see 392 homes for rent available later this year. In Q4 2023, Moda launched a consultation on the next phase of New Garden Square.

As part of an emerging UK-wide masterplan strategy, Moda announced that they will deliver a major new urban community with up to 1,600 homes and £6m of public realm at New Garden Square.

The 11-acre masterplan will include a new park, retail space, a range of cafes, bars and restaurants, and community amenities and industry-leading workspace. 

“These plans represent a huge step forward for the next phase of the New Garden Square masterplan, bringing us closer to delivering additional much-needed, high-quality new homes for Edgbaston, with substantial public space next to Edgbaston Village metro station.   

“Our partnership working with Calthorpe Estates, the local community, and our investors and stakeholders plus Birmingham City Council will deliver something that is transformational not just for Edgbaston and Birmingham, but also for the wider Midlands region.” 

James Blakey, Planning and Engagement Director, Moda Group

The New Garden Square masterplan further demonstrates Moda’s commitment to Birmingham. The company is committed to making a positive impact locally – as long-term custodians of the communities they operate in.
