Gunsmith House restoration central to Elevate’s plans for Birmingham’s Price Street

A planning application for 84 apartments at 51-61 Price Street in Birmingham’s Gun Quarter has been submitted by Elevate Property Group. 

The development has been designed by local firm K4 Architects Ltd and includes plans to restore Gunsmith House - a locally-listed building - to provide a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments. 

Outline planning permission for the conversion and building work - which is Elevate’s tenth scheme in Birmingham alone - was granted back in May 2020. The firm also has work either underway or due to commence in Ashford, Kent, Nottingham, Derby and Malvern.

If this project is approved, construction will begin in late 2021 and will be completed by 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 start at around £180,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, offering great value to prospective buyers. 

This year, Elevate Property Group has already been granted planning permission for 258 apartments at Castleward Boulevard off Liversage Street in Derby, 57 new homes at Heaton House, Camden Street Birmingham, and 58 in the second phase of Trent Bridge Quays in Nottingham. The second phase at Princes Gate in Solihull has also been approved, with work in all five sites - delivering some 512 properties in total - due to start this year.
