project overview

A colossal 51-storey prestigious City centre residential development, of which is to change the skyline of Birmingham. This scheme presents 667 apartments, offering a high quality split between build to rent and build to sell apartments, across a varying unit mix. Alongside the residential offering will be vibrant and active amenity spaces at either extremity of its height.

Located on a highly constrained site footprint, in close proximity to the planned HS2 rail hub, this development presents a complex bottom up approach to phasing, with the key focus to handover and release numerous units to market while the envelope and fit out to the floors above are still under construction. Delivered in its entirety over 7-phases in order to maximise and manage the crucial matter of funding and acceleration of income.

The scheme has been project management led and driven by novus since its inception and in conjunction with the client and wider team, has to date successfully concluded the preconstruction phase, having acquired planning determination, brought the site back to grade, prepared the contract for imminent enabling works commencement and landed on a fixed contract sum with the main contractor. Following the aforementioned enabling works, novus will continue to manage the project throughout the post contract phase and onward to completion.

Building on the long term relationship forged, novus are proud to be working with such a bold and innovative developer, to bring the magnitude of this project to reality for the City.
