RG+P wins green light for overhaul of Birmingham's Irish Quarter

  • Comment

Leicester-based practice RG+P has won planning approval for a £130 million scheme to overhaul Birmingham's run-down Irish Quarter in Digbeth.

The practice aims to transform the area into Connaught Square, a mixed-use scheme which will include shops, offices, bars, restaurants, 631 apartments, a spa and a four-star hotel.

The 2ha scheme is the largest single design project undertaken by the firm in its 28-year history.

RG+P Design director Rob Woolston said: 'The approved plan was based around strong urban principles tied in with recognition of the site's long manufacturing past and natural characteristics.'
