Plans in for Soho Loop, Dudley Road

Proposals for a canalside scheme to build apartments, retail and a gym a mile away from Birmingham city centre have been lodged. The scheme, called Soho Loop on the old BCN Main Line canal, aims to transform 12 acres of land near City Hospital with 504 new homes and a new cycle bridge, therefore bringing a redundant site into productive use.

The plans include 65 affordable dwellings, as well as a large data centre to house telecommunications and digital storage systems. The remainder of homes will be retained for long-term rental (PRS).
