The proposals for the £225m build-to-rent development, which were originally approved in 2019, were resubmitted as a new application following further engagement with local stakeholders and approved again by Birmingham City Council last night. 

One Eastside will see 667 units constructed near to the new HS2 station on Curzon Street as part of a Build-to-Rent-led mixed-use scheme across two buildings, with residential gardens and courtyard spaces, as well as a gym, cinema and sky lounge.

Alex Neale, Managing Director of Court Collaboration, said: “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 forwards from here.”

The 51-storey and 16-storey buildings are due to be completed in the autumn of 2024.
