Derelict Erdington site acquired by SevenCapital
Leading regeneration and development specialist SevenCapital has acquired a 5.5 acre site in Erdington, Birmingham – a vibrant suburb five miles north of the city centre. The site enjoys a long frontage to the Sutton Road – a busy commuter route between the city and the northern suburbs – and is bounded by Orphanage Road to the rear.
Former site occupants include a car showroom, workshop premises and Honeywell House, an eight-storey office block. SevenCapital has already submitted plans to convert the offices into 84 apartments and now plans to bring forward a comprehensive plan for the remainder of the site that will include a mix of residential and commercial uses which will improve the vitality of this part of Erdington Town Centre.
Samuel Clark, director at SevenCapital commented:
“This site has remained an eyesore for a number of years whilst the surrounding area has benefited from continued investment including Erdington Leisure Centre, Erdington Skills Centre and the ongoing regeneration of the Lyndhurst Estate.
“We are pleased to now be able to play our part in the reinvigoration of this part of Erdington and continue our investment both within and outside the city centre. We will soon be bringing forward plans to transform the location into an attractive and inviting place to live and work.”
Subject to consultation with the local authority and local residents, a full planning application will be submitted in the new year, with works starting immediately thereafter.
