504 Bristol Rd is a brand-new development located in Selly Oak, Birmingham, and is only a stone's throw from the University of Birmingham. This amazing new build scheme consists of offices, retail and multilevel prestigious student accommodation of 70 self-contained luxury studios and has various internal and external communal spaces including study pods and a large courtyard. It is arranged over 4 floors, with the ground floor given over for retail purposes, and the fifth floor largely glazed and setback. The shape and design of the building in this project make it unique and innovative. The building was designed with reference to the historical character of the site and with respect to shipbuilding. This is clearly translated in its built form, massing and the materials used. The development has provided direct employment opportunities and increased economic activity through the new ground floor town centre uses. Both supporting and enhancing existing business activities in the immediate vicinity and acting as a catalyst for further regeneration projects along this stretch of High Street within Selly Oak.
