£70 million scheme will include new offices and shops
Birmingham City Council has given planning permission for a new £70 million revamp of Longbridge town centre by Holder Mathias.
The work will be carried out in three phases and will include a Sainsbury’s store, a 75-bed hotel, 40 apartments, 2,500sq m of offices along with a further 8,000sq m of retail space and restaurants.
Holder Mathias project partner Steve Hill said: “We are delighted that the proposals for the first phase of the new town centre at Longbridge have received planning permission.”
The work is being masterminded by developer St Modwen and regeneration agency Advantage West Midlands which is due to be scrapped next year.
The overall £1 billion Longbridge scheme involves revamping the 189ha former MG Rover works which is expected to create 10,000 new jobs and up to 2,000 new homes.
