Landmark apartment scheme reaches half way stage
A project to transform a prime city centre office into 19 luxury apartments is on course to launch at the end of the year.
New Street Chambers is an EDG Property development project for LaSalle Investment Management and will see the creation of a range of one and two bedroomed apartments just seconds away from the new Grand Central development in the heart of Birmingham.
As well as being some of the best located apartments in the city with views along Birmingham’s main shopping street, they will be of the highest specification with features including Porcelanosa kitchens and bathrooms across the whole scheme.
The apartments will be released to rent over the coming month or so with occupation likely in September. EDG Director Neil Edginton is confident that there will be strong demand for the apartments.
He said: “There remains a significant demand for quality city centre apartments in Birmingham and we are confident that this scheme will attract high interest levels due to the quality but also the rare opportunity to live so close to New Street Station, the Central Business District, the Council House and Town Hall.
“This is an exciting opportunity for EDG to work with a great team and add some real long term value to a fantastic building on New Street that will undoubtedly set a new benchmark for city living in Birmingham.”
Edd Fitch, National Director, LaSalle Investment Management said: “This redevelopment demonstrates our ability to add value to assets in core locations around the country. EDG Property creates award winning residential apartments and we are very pleased with the progress to date.”
Architects on the project are Warwick-based Corstorphine + Wright who were recently recognised by Architects’ Journal as one of the UK’s fastest growing practices at their AJ100 awards while the main contractor is AOC Contracts.
