Goodman has submitted an outline planning application for its Eastside Locks – a £450m mixed use regeneration scheme in Birmingham city centre.
The scheme, formerly known as Ventureast, is a 13 acre 1.4m sq ft scheme and will include more than 700,000 sq ft of offices, 352,819 sq ft of residential, 175 room hotel, and 103,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space.
The £1.8bn Arlington Business Parks Partnership fund (ABPP), which is managed by international property group Goodman, is working in a joint venture with Advantage West Midlands, (AWM) the regional development agency.
Leading global city
Jim Johnston, Goodman’s managing director for UK Business Parks, said: ‘These plans demonstrate how much work has been undertaken to make Eastside Locks a unique and vibrant mixed use environment. We are confident that the foundations are now in place to make Eastside Locks an exceptional sustainable scheme for businesses, the local community and Eastside, further strengthening Birmingham as a leading global city.’
AukettFitzroyRobinson undertook the masterplan for the site.
Goodman and AWM finalised the development agreement in August 2007.
The plans for the scheme will open to the public in the summer.
