HCA announces next phase development at Park Central in UK

The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has announced that Get Britain Building programme has invested £3.96 million ($6 million) to start work on the latest phase of development at Park Central in Birmingham, UK.

The new phase at Park Central, known as Central Plaza, is the 13th phase of the scheme, which will deliver 132 new one- and two-bedroom apartments in two residential buildings sitting over a 139-space undercroft car park.

Located at the heart of the development, the Central Plaza will connect together the eight acres of landscaped parkland at Park Central. The new phase will include sustainable features like the combination of green roof planting and high-quality paved areas for residents’ use.

The £570 million ($925 million) Get Britain Building programme, announced as part of the UK Government’s Housing Strategy in November 2011, is supporting housebuilders by providing access to development finance to unlock up to 16,000 new homes across the country. All homes supported by the Get Britain Building programme will be completed by December 2015.
