Court Collaboration has announced it has been given the go ahead by Birmingham City Council’s planning committee for its One Eastside Build to Rent development, paving the way for several hundred new luxury apartments in the city centre.

The proposals – which were originally approved in 2019 – were resubmitted as a new application following further engagement with local stakeholders. 

One Eastside will include 667 apartments – which will be constructed near the new HS2 station on Curzon Street. This forms part of a Build to Rent-led mixed-use scheme across two buildings, with residential gardens and courtyard spaces, as well as a range of amenities including a gym, cinema and sky lounge.

“We’re delighted with the committee’s approval and will now begin planning a start on site date for this truly exciting and rightly-ambitious development.

“The team have worked tirelessly to overcome a number of challenges since we first announced our proposals for One Eastside and we know there will be more to come following this latest milestone.

“We believe in this scheme and the future of our city centre, so the hard work will continue as we move forward from here.”
