Hammerson submits plans for first major City Quarters scheme in Birmingham
Hammerson, which owns and manages Bullring & Grand Central, has submitted a planning application to Birmingham City Council for the regeneration of its Martineau Galleries site. This is Hammerson’s first major application as a part of its City Quarters concept.
The submitted plans look to regenerate the 7.5 acre Martineau Galleries site which includes the Square Shopping Centre, Dale End car park and 1-7 Dale End. Proposals include the delivery of new homes and up to 1.4m sq ft of workspace as well as a new city centre hotel, restaurants and cafes.
Robin Dobson, UK director of development and project management at Hammerson said: “City Quarters is all about creating thriving, mixed-use environments where people can live, work and relax in exceptional neighbourhoods, adjacent to our flagship destinations. Hammerson has a strong track record of delivering the places where people want to be, and this expertise will be applied to our City Quarters developments to create exciting, vibrant spaces in the UK’s very best cities.”
