Gunsmith House Restoration to Lead Elevate’s Plans for Price Street

26 May 2021 | General

Elevate Property Group has applied for detailed planning permission for 84 apartments at 51-61 Price Street in Birmingham’s Gun Quarter.

The scheme, designed by Birmingham firm K4 Architects Ltd, will include the restoration of the existing, locally-listed, Gunsmith House, and provide 34 one bedroom, 44 two bedroom and 4 three bedroom apartments in total.

The development was granted outline planning permission for the conversion and building work in May 2020.

The multi-million pound project is Elevate Property Group’s tenth scheme in Birmingham alone, with work also currently underway or due to start in Ashford, Kent, Nottingham, Derby and Malvern.

The scheme is currently in for planning and if approved construction will begin in the third quarter of 2021 with completion projected for the end of 2022.

James Costello, development director at Elevate Property Group, said: “With work already having started on our recently acquired development at Priory House in Southside, this is another scheme in a great location for those who live and work in the city. The Gun Quarter has a great heritage and we look forward to restoring Gunsmith House as part of the development, furthering our commitment to protecting the best of the old alongside fantastic new living accommodation in a popular part of Birmingham.”

Prices will offer great value to prospective buyers with prices expected to start at around £180,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.

Elevate Property Group has already this year received planning permission for 258 apartments at Castleward Boulevard off Liversage Street in Derby, 57 new homes at Heaton House, Camden Street Birmingham, 58 in the second phase of Trent Bridge Quays in Nottingham, and in the second phase at Princes Gate in Solihull.

Work on all five sites is due to start this year – a total of 512 properties.
