Jewellery Quarter (St Paul’s Quarter) development 2020

This looks like an interesting development. Hopefully it will be sympathetically implemented.

The 20-building transformation of the 1.6ha one-time AE Harris industrial site – now dubbed St Paul’s Quarter – includes the retrofit of two Grade II-listed buildings. Both 109 Northwood Street, built in 1882 for military ornament makers Brent and Parker and described by Historic England as ’internationally significant’, and the neo-Georgian 199 Newhall Street factory will be converted into new workspace.

According to the development team, a further two derelict buildings – 123 and 128 Northwood Street – will also ‘be salvaged’ and converted into flats.

The development site is bounded by Newhall Street, Graham Street, Brook Street, James Street and Northwood Street. The plans feature a new pedestrian route from from Newhall Street into the heart of the Jewellery Quarter and the opening up of Northwood, which has been partially closed to the public for the past 20 years
