A Historical Gem:
Glasswater Locks resides alongside the Digbeth Branch Canal, a site of historical significance. Archaeological excavations unveiled remnants of a Boulton & Watt steam engine and kilns from the Belmont Glassworks, active on the site since 1803.
Glassmaking was a major industry in Birmingham in the 1800s, and glassworks were strategically located along waterways. With the arrival of railways in the mid-1800s, a rail terminal was established at nearby Curzon Street, setting the stage for Birmingham's bright, connected future.

The development prioritizes creating a pedestrianized, car-free environment and enhancing public spaces around Glasswater Locks, focusing on well-being and environmental quality.

The area will host cafés, bars, and restaurants offering alfresco dining options. Public art, interactive water features, and space for outdoor events will create a carefully landscaped and diverse neighborhood catering to everyone.
Residents can relish tranquil views over the canal from elevated, resident-only courtyard gardens.
