Commonwealth Games Athletes Village

As a part of Birmingham’s successful bid for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, there is a requirement to provide “games time” accommodation for a minimum of 6,500 athletes, together with associated facilities including dining and medical services.

The client is Birmingham City Council and the contract will be managed by the Council which already builds 400-500 homes a year in the city.

The development will form a new high-quality aspirational neighbourhood in the heart of Perry Barr and demolition started at the site of former Birmingham City University in June 2018. The site is situated to the North West of Birmingham City Centre Core just 2.9 miles from New Street Station, within and on the Southern boundary of the Perry Barr constituency. The site is adjacent to the Perry Barr train station and in close proximity of Perry Hall Park to the West and the River Tame that runs from East to West North of the site.

The Village will house the athletes and officials taking part in the Commonwealth Games in the summer of 2022.

The accommodation, which is close to Alexander Stadium where the track and field events will take place, will also incorporate a running track and several green spaces.

Once the multi-sport event is finished, the site will be converted into around 1,400 new apartments, including social, affordable and private renting and homes for sale.

The future development is also set to have an extra care village for older people and a community centre.
