The final piece of the Park Central estate redevelopment close to Birmingham city centre could receive the green light this week.
Known as 'zone 11', the corner plot on Lee Bank Middleway and Bristol Street was originally intended to house an Asda supermarket and 27-storey 'Spiral Tower' which would have dominated the skyline south of the city centre.
Birmingham City Council officers have recommended the project be approved when its planning committee meets on Thursday.
The site became embroiled in a decade-long supermarket war between Asda and Tesco which had its own plans to demolish nearby Monaco House for a store there.
Both projects fell by the wayside so developer Crest Nicholson is now applying for permission to build 335 apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, and 270 parking spaces in a group of six buildings reaching up to ten storeys.
A total of 217 flats would be managed and privately rented while the remainder would be placed for sale on the open market.
The submission also includes plans for a small convenience store and other commercial space, communal facilities such as café and gym for residents.
This element is the final stage of Surrey-based Crest Nicholson's long-running regeneration of what was the Lee Bank Estate, a formerly run-down area of the city whose origins stem back to the Industrial Revolution in the early to mid-1800s.
The 3.4-acre corner plot was once the home of council-owned, 20-storey Haddon Tower which was demolished in 2006.
