Properties are handed over at our completed site in Hall Green
The 210-home development built on a former greyhound track in Birmingham has now been completed.
We worked with regeneration specialist Vistry Partnerships to build the homes on the former stadium in Hall Green which closed in 2017.
The development is made up of 109 affordable homes, which include shared ownership and affordable rent, and a further 101 are being sold for private sale through Vistry Partnerships’ award-winning housebuilding-arm Linden Homes.
The affordable homes were all handed over to customers in March.
Our Executive Director of Development Nick Byrne said: “We’re so pleased to see the completion of our Hall Green development and that the homes have been handed over to customers.
“It’s always great to see a brownfield site brought back to use and the homes available here will really help with the housing need in the local area.
“This is one of many developments which we are working on with Vistry Partnerships and we’re thrilled it’s been completed to a high standard.”
The development is a mix of apartments and two- and three-bedroom homes.
Managing Director at Vistry Partnerships West Midlands, Darren Beale, said: “After three years on site, we are delighted to have finished our work with Citizen in Hall Green and we wish all the new residents every happiness here. Our final few private sale homes are nearing completion and we expect the remaining properties to be sold out shortly.
“The Hall Green scheme is another example of how our working relationship with Citizen is helping to bring much-needed homes to the West Midlands, and we look forward to working alongside the housing association again as we continue to deliver high-quality homes.”
Work started on the development in 2018 and it is close to local amenities such as schools, shops and public transport including commuter access to Birmingham New Street station.
We are also working with Vistry Partnerships on the adjacent York Road scheme which started in late 2020. The project is due for completion in the summer of 2021, and 100 per cent of the properties will be affordable.
