Plans for a £1bn transformation of the area around the iconic Custard Factory in Birmingham's Digbeth area have been submitted to the city council.
Oval is seeking the go-ahead for the scheme which would include up to 2.2 million sq ft of commercial space and 1,850 homes alongside shops, resturants, cafes and additional leisure facilities.
According to the applicant, more than 16,000 jobs will be created if the green light is given by Birmingham City Council for the 42-acre scheme.
The application has been put together by Studio Egret West as well as Glenn Howells Architects and Bryant Priest Newman.
