Breaking Ground at Belgrave Village
Wavensmere Homes, with joint venture partners The Galliard Apsley Partnership, have officially broken ground at Belgrave Village, Birmingham.
Cllr Ian Ward, leader of Birmingham City Council, joined members of the joint venture partnership at the site for a ground-breaking ceremony on 18 October 2022 to mark the milestone.
The new development, on Belgrave Middleway and Haden Way, close to Highgate and Digbeth, comprises 438 homes, including 264 one and two-bedroom apartments and 174 two, three and four-bedroom houses.
Wavensmere Homes and The Galliard Apsley Partnership are regenerating the 12-acre site, which has been vacant for more than 20 years. It was previously occupied by Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College and Birmingham Sports Centre.
The homes at Belgrave Village will be set around courtyard gardens, landscaped public realm and a linear park, with additional private gardens to all houses. The development will include 263 parking spaces and additional cycle spaces. Belgrave Village will also boast a range of onsite shared amenities for residents, including a fully equipped gym, co-working space, a screening room, and a concierge for the apartments.
Cllr Ian Ward said: ‘Birmingham needs more homes to cater for the city’s growing population and it’s great to see developers such as Wavensmere Homes and The Galliard Apsley Partnership answering the call … Belgrave Village isn’t just another housing development; it’s a new neighbourhood that will regenerate and breathe life into this up-and-coming area of the city, delivering much needed homes for the people of Birmingham.’
