Birmingham Paradise design exhibition opens to the public

🕔15.Apr 2015

An exhibition showing detailed designs for the £500 million Paradise regeneration scheme opens tomorrow, giving visitors the chance to comment on the biggest Birmingham city centre regeneration scheme for decades.

The city council granted outline planning last year for the project, which will see demolition of the former Central Library, Paradise Forum and surrounding buildings, opening up a huge building site in the shadow of the Council House and Town Hall.

Detailed proposals for the first phase at Chamberlain Square have been put together by Glenn Howells Architects, Eric Perry Architects and Grant Associates Landscape Architects on behalf of developers Argent.

The aim is to transform this historic civic area of the city into a vibrant mixed use development of commercial, retail, leisure and hotel space, providing major improvements to pedestrian access and greatly enhanced public realm befitting the city’s historical and civic core.

Argent is now preparing to submit three reserved matters applications for the detailed design of two office buildings with space for shops and restaurants at ground floor level and an upgraded Chamberlain Square.

Paradise comes on stream alongside two other major city centre regeneration projects – completion of the Snow Hill offices scheme and work beginning on the long awaited Arena Central development at the bottom of Broad Street on the former ATV studios site.

The public exhibition for Paradise is being held on the 7th floor of 77 Paradise Circus, opposite the Copthorne Hotel,  on April 16, 17 and 18, where the detailed design proposals for each building and the new areas of public realm will be on display.

Design teams for each application will be on hand to talk about the proposals, answer any questions and listen to comments.

An online questionnaire seeking views on the proposals is available here.
