Perry Barr Tower Block Makeover

Via The Stirrer. Urban Splash, who have taken seemingly ages to refit Fort Dunlop and the Rotunda, have been chosen by Birmingham City Council to transform three tower blocks on the Birchfield estate in Perry Barr. The idea being to create ‘city living’ style apartments that are also “affordable housing”. Nice to see ‘regenration’ of housing outside the city centre – I hope these won’t be snapped up by people to rent out to UCE students, and that proper controls to stop that are in place.
