Glancy Nicholls submits plans for Commonwealth Games village

Perry Barr 8

Buildings for Birmingham games also designed by Glenn Howells

Birmingham’s plans for the 2022 Commonwealth Games have taken a step forward with plans for the residential element of the athletes’ village submitted for planning by Glancy Nicholls Architects.

The village, which will be built on the site of the former Birmingham City University campus in Perry Barr, will be large enough to accommodate the 6,500 athletes and officials coming to Birmingham in the summer of 2022.

After the games the village will provide around 1,400 new homes across a range of tenures – social and affordable rent, homes for sale and for private rent. The development will also include an extra care village for older people and a community centre.
