Brum’s Calthorpe Estate commissions new masterplan

Part of the Calthorpe Estate in Birmingham

Broadway Malyan appointed to create ‘long-term vision’ for 640ha swathe of city

The owners of a swathe of Birmingham that includes one of the city’s most affluent areas have appointed Broadway Malyan to develop a new long-term vision for the holding.

Calthorpe Estate includes late city architect John Madin’s Edgbaston garden suburb, Warwickshire County Cricket Club’s Edgbaston Stadium and the Edgbaston Priory Club, which hosts tennis’ annual WTA Tour. The 640ha estate is also home to Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Birmingham University, and Edgbaston Medical Quarter.

Owners Calthorpe Estates said a key focus of Broadway Malyan’s work would be the areas of the holding along the Hagley Road and Bristol Road arteries which broadly mark the northern and southern boundaries for the estate, and which were earmarked for commercial use in Madin’s 1958 masterplan.
