Eversheds wins regeneration deal

Eversheds has landed a role on Birmingham’s latest development after being instructed by the preferred developer for the £300m regeneration of the city’s Masshouse area

North West-based David MacLean Developments was selected by Birmingham City Council at the end of April to develop the 13-acre site, beating four other shortlisted developers. David MacLean talked to several firms before instructing Eversheds‘ Birmingham office for the first time. The introduction came via Eversheds’ Manchester-based head of property development Stephen Sorrell.
Birmingham partner Parmjit Singh is leading the team. He said: “With offices in the major regions, clients can call us up for our local knowledge and expertise. We’re on the ground, ready to go when clients become active outside of the areas they traditionally deal with.”
Eversheds has already taken key roles in Birmingham developments, including the Mailbox, Star City, Arena Central, the Eastside regeneration and the redevelopment of the BBC’s Pebble Mill studios.
Wragge & Co is advising the council’s reserve choice developer for Masshouse, Amec Developments. Pinsent Curtis Biddle is acting for the council.
