Phase two of the work will see a new entrance plaza, car parking facilities created as well as ‘The Edgbaston Residences’, made up of 375 residential apartments and new retail and leisure opportunities.
Winvic Construction has been appointed as the main contractor to begin the £93 million project by Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Patrizia, which purchased the residential site next to the Pershore Road from the club and Homes England.
All works are expected to be completed in the second half of 2023 with the plaza, landscaping and car parking works finished by spring 2022, when Edgbaston hosts the women’s T20 tournament in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and a men’s test match between England and South Africa.
Craig Flindall, chief operating officer at Warwickshire CCC, said: “Despite the barriers created by the Covid pandemic and national lockdowns, we have been able to navigate a way through and are delighted that we can now get this major redevelopment project underway, which will transform our stadium footprint and the surrounding facilities.
“Later this year we intend to reveal plans for the third phase of the Edgbaston master plan, which will include the next phase of the redevelopment of the stadium.”
Phase one of the Edgbaston master plan saw the £32m redevelopment of the south and west stands, which created some of the best facilities of its kind for spectators, hospitality guests, players and match officials.
The 375 apartments are a build-to-rent scheme with car parks and cycle storage.
