Inside the deal: Arden Cross is a major mixed-use commercial and residential destination in the Midlands, where the new HS2 Interchange station is under construction.
Muse, the development business of Morgan Sindall, was appointed to the 346-acre scheme by consortium Arden Cross Limited in November last year.
Arden Cross Limited is a special purpose delivery vehicle created by landowners Birmingham City Council, Packington Estate and Coleshill Estate.
It is understood Studio Egret West’s masterplan will supersede Weston Williamson & Partners’.
West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) has reportedly committed £57 million to the scheme’s wider infrastructure to date.
However, earlier reports suggest more than £800 million of investment has been committed to the Arden Cross site overall.
- Delivery of 3,000 new homes
- 6 million sq ft of employment space
- New Medical & Technology Campus
- Up to 27,000 new jobs
- Department for Transport
- Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council
- Urban Growth Company
It is understood the first phase of development could begin in 2025.
