Abberley Street, Smethwick

Strategic development plan for 60 new houses and 30 apartments on a canalside site.

  • Project Sector: Residential
  • Project Type: New Build / Regeneration

Umaa Architecture was appointed by the owners of this brownfield site to masterplan a redevelopment scheme providing a mix of housing types suitable for the needs of the local market and help provide guidance on the sale of the site to potential developers.

The site comprises a long strip of industrial land sitting between industrial and residential areas and with its Western boundary overlooking the canal.

Initial proposals are arranged around the best views, with a new apartment block facing side on to the canal and new streets formed end on to neighbouring industrial sites. The proposals provide a mix of detached, semi-detached and mews houses as well as the apartment block which provides smaller units to meet the needs of an urban development site.
