New 17-storey apartment complex to be built next to city hotel

Next phase of regeneration of Park Regis site will see more than 200 flats developed on existing car park

More than 200 new apartments are set to be built in Broad Street next to a city hotel.

The second phase of the regeneration of the Park Regis site next to Five Ways island will see 228 apartments built on the hotel's car park.

The 271-room Park Regis opened last year following the renovation of the run-down Auchinleck House building.

Developer Seven Capital is now aiming to complete its work there by constructing a new residential-led, mixed-use building of between six and 17 storeys on land currently used as a car park by the hotel.

The application site is bordered by St Martin's Street and Tennant Street with the 17-storey element fronting onto Broad Street.

The development comprises 117 one-bedroom, 105 two-bedroom and six three-bedroom apartments.

There will also be a rooftop courtyard area and seven ground floor retail units.

A spokesperson for Seven Capital said: "The planning application is for the proposed development of high-end apartments to be located on the current car park site of the Park Regis Hotel.

"The current parking allocation for the Park Regis development is 115.

"Plans for the proposed development include 115 replacement parking spaces for the hotel plus a further 37 vehicle and 228 cycle parking spaces for residential use."

Park Regis opened in March 2016 and also has Japanese restaurant Rofuto on its 16th floor, Sky Bar and the 1565 bar and outdoor terrace.

Seven Capital also recently created long-stay serviced apartments in the Broadway building opposite the hotel which used to house a Tesco supermarket.

This is the latest in a long line of Seven Capital developments in Birmingham including St George's Village in the Jewellery Quarter, the former Harrison Drape factory in Digbeth and apartments off the A38 Bristol Street in the Southside district.
