Westminster Works is a brand-new luxury residential development on a key brownfield site in Digbeth, which received planning approval in May 2018. Situated on derelict manufacturing land adjacent to the Paragon Hotel, this proposal aims to revive a previously declined area of Digbeth through considered detailing, reflective massing and a celebration of material and craftsmanship; hallmarks of Digbeth’s trading past.

This proposal brings 220 units of 1 and 2-bedroom accommodation, quality residents’ amenity space and city centre car parking, that in combination, seek to satisfy a great demand in this area of Birmingham.

The development shows reverence to this locale’s industrial heritage; seeking to re-establish the warehouse architecture that is seen in much of Digbeth’s urban grain and land use.

The striking use of masonry provides a solid distinctive building that avoids pastiche and taking focus from its prominent red brick neighbours. By using proportions familiar to the area yet providing an architecture for living with close links to the expansive transport links and local amenities, Westminster Works offers much for this part of Birmingham.

The loft-living style apartments at Westminster Works will offer modern inner-city living and we are delighted to be taking this scheme forward.
