Two apartment complexes totalling almost £30 million worth of investment have been given the green light by city planning chiefs.
The two projects will see 177 one- and two-bedroom apartments constructed on vacant, derelict land in two separate schemes by Seven Capital.
The developer, which is behind several projects across Birmingham, says it now plans to start work immediately on both schemes.
Granville Lofts will comprise 112 flats and 51 parking spaces on the corner of Granville Street and Holliday Street, close to Broad Street.
Ridley House will see 65 apartments and 15 parking spaces built on the corner of Ridley Street and Washington Street in the shadow of The Cube.
Both developments, awarded approval by Birmingham City Council's planning committee yesterday, will be on sale from early 2016 with a projected completion date of later that same year.
Seven Capital's managing director Phil Carlin said: "The demand for new residential properties in the West Midlands is significant and our ongoing commitment to the region addresses this.
"We value a strong working relationship with Birmingham City Council's planning department and appreciate its continued support as we further add to city centre living options for the growing number of residents.
"2016 is going to be a busy year for us with around 1,500 units either completing or starting on site across the city.
"We are excited about bringing all of these projects to life in the near future and doing our part to move Birmingham forward and create a world class city."
