West Bromwich in line for High Street revamp

Author: Ashley Curtis - 30 January 2013

Designs for High Street's multi-million pound revamp have been unveiled, reports localuknews.co.uk.

The project, which will see the old Sandwell College demolished and replaced by a multi-use development, is the brainchild of the Homes and Communities Agency which invests in local regeneration projects, adds expressandstar.com.

The College block will disappears be replaced by a lower six-storey building, with the ground floor dedicated to retail units. The upper floors could house apartments, a hotel or even offices.

As a result, the building will be 'lower than the neighbouring West Bromwich Society building' and there will be a courtyard space where people can sit on steel benches. In addition, a 64-space car park will be available via Dartmouth Street, but 'there is also potential' for it to be accessed off High Street.

Terry Bolton, an architect from BBLB Architects, commented on the project: "The design aims to show potential developers what they could use the space for, and also to show the general public what style of building is proposed to replace the Sandwell College tower.

"The aim was to make sure the striking West Bromwich Building Society building is still the main focus of the high street," he added.
