The Naus Group has appointed Rider Levett Bucknall as project managers and cost consultants to its £95 million landmark development in Digbeth, Birmingham.
Connaught Square will occupy a 4.544 acre site fronting High Street Deritend and is set to transform the city's Irish Quarter.
It will comprise 658 new apartments, a 180-bed hotel incorporating 36 serviced apartments, shops, offices, bars, restaurants, more than 1,000 underground car parking spaces, and two new public squares.
Key features will be a four star hotel with a sky bar and restaurant offering panoramic views of the city, a spa facility and a new Irish Centre.
One of the new public squares straddles the River Rea.
City planners gave the green light for the development, expected to create around 800 jobs, in December.
Mark Weaver, managing partner at Rider Levett Bucknall is heading the firm's team on the scheme.
He commented: "Birmingham has made great strides in regenerating its inner city areas and this project is a natural progression in these transformation plans.
"This is a naturally vibrant area. This fresh injection of vitality will deliver an unrivalled new gateway to the city.
"We are delighted to be involved in a project that will make such a significant impact on the city and its future economy." Other consultants working on the scheme include architects RGP in Leicester and engineers Scott Wilson in Birmingham.
Rider Levett Bucknall is currently involved in schemes which include the £176 million Wolverhampton Interchange, the transformation of the £120 million scheme located at Five Ways behind Auchinleck House and the redevelopment of the former IBM site in Warwick at the £47 million Opus 40 Premier Business Park project.
