This master-planning project was for a new urban development to be undertaken in Birmingham immediately behind Baskerville House, in the centre of the city to be known as the Baskerville Quarter. The development utilized the space to the west of Baskerville House between the adjoining theatre and also to the north, immediately south of the canal.
The proposal was for a mixed use development to bring residential, commercial, office and retail space to this area of Birmingham. The bold proposal was undertaken for a local developer who had already purchased Baskerville House and was preparing to redevelop the building. The scheme was intended to build on the success of other developments, such as developments at Brindley Place. The area is well served for transport links and the principle public space created, aligning with the existing Memorial Gardens, consolidates the development.
