    It’s a masterplan​

    Port Loop is a 43-acre, canal-side site in Birmingham, just 15 mins from the city centre offering 1,150 new homes, retail and leisure spaces.

    With an urban island at its heart, encircled by two famous canals, the Birmingham Canal Old Line and the Birmingham Canal. The area has a rich industrial past connected with these waterways. Places for People and Urban Splash have put a new masterplan in place to transform this area into an exciting new community of homes and leisure facilities, to include a new swimming pool, reinvented existing historical buildings and over 1.5km of new towpaths; creating moorings, cycleways and walkways to the city, there’s even a waterbus stop!

    Great architectural practices are working side by side to create a mix of innovative new family houses and apartments. Offering new ways to configure your space and your life in contemporary yet comfortingly familiar-looking terraced homes.

    Building new homes is just the start for Port Loop, working with our partners Birmingham City Council and the Canal & River Trust, the site will offer commercial and leisure spaces too. The canals and towpaths surrounding Port Loop offer the perfect opportunity to reconnect the city with a great new new neighbourhood for residents, businesses and visitors to the city alike.

    A destination for both tourist and working barges; providing, play facilities, wildlife corridors, community parks & areas to meet

    Port Loop masterplan


    Ancient water ways

    Before the arrival of the canal in 1769 the area known as Rotton Park was a vast parkland used for deer hunting. In the next 50 years the whole of Birmingham was completely transformed into a city of a thousand trades and became a thriving industrial city with the canal at its heart.

    The Birmingham to Wolverhampton Canal was constructed in 1766-9, engineered by James Brindley, Canal pioneer, on a winding alignment, largely dictated by the contours of the landscape. This was the first canal in Birmingham. The loop forms a 1 km section of the eighteenth-century Main Line canal west of the city centre.

    Live at Port Loop

    Town House

    Contemporary urban homes combining natural, sustainable materials with plentiful daylight and flexible spaces all set in a waterside neighbourhood that promotes a healthy and connected community.

    Island Life

    A manifesto for a future neighbourhood on an island in the inner city. The island is a place where rules change - where we can create our own rules, if we create the right rules people will want to live on and around the island, tell stories about the island and travel to see how we did it.

    A world class team working in partnership

    A project the scale of Port Loop could not be delivered without the creative flair & imagination of the design team and the collaboration of leading developers, architects and designers.

    All partners are very excited about the task ahead. To transform this amazing but neglected and underused part of Birmingham into a truly wonderful new waterside quarter full of homes, life, activity, on land and on water - a vibrant and family-focused new neighbourhood for the 21st Century.

    The transformation of Port Loop will be delivered through a joint venture between Places for People & Urban Splash, working in partnership with Birmingham City Council and Canal & River Trust.

    The masterplan was created by Macreanor Lavington, award-winning architects with a particular expertise in housing, public buildings and regeneration. The detailed first phase architects have included Glen Howells, shedkm and Grant Associates.
