Birmingham offers executive city living to rival London to those escaping the capital

We are seeing an increase in demand for rental properties in the UK City Centres and Birmingham is certainly no exception, it is ironic that in this post Brexit time we are becoming more European in our life style and experiencing a real shift in attitude towards residential renting.

As a nation, we now realise that renting does not actually mean a compromise in our standard of living, a great example of this is the new development right in the heart of the city centre by award winning developer EDG Property, in partnership with LaSalle Investment Management.  New Street Chambers, is a sympathetic conversion of the former Royal Birmingham Society of Artists building.  Situated adjacent to Victoria Square, this character building has been transformed into 19 luxury, designer, one and two bedroom apartments.

Neil Edginton, Managing Director at EDG Property, commented, “We are really pleased with the luxury finish achieved at New Street Chambers and with the increase of applicants in the rental market we are already seeing huge demand for these designer apartments.”

Edd Fitch, National Director at LaSalle Investment Management, said, “By converting the upper floors to residential we have been able to add significant value to New Street Chambers. The work has been carried out to a high standard which has been successfully received by potential tenants.”

Ideally located to attract the professionals who are relocating due to the influx of corporate multi nationals moving to the UK’s second city such as HSBC and Deutsche Bank.  Relocations spurred on by the city’s vastly improved infrastructure and the demand from those seeking to escape the London housing market and who want to be minutes from all the amenities Birmingham City Centre has to offer including: brand new Grand Central, designer city centre retailers, the host of fine dining options including Michelin star restaurants, Purnell’s and Adams as well as the endless nightlife on offer in the city.

Centrick Property is very pleased to have been instructed to let these highly desirable apartments and anticipate a huge demand with people wanting to reserve quickly to be sure not miss out.  The main launch, open day will be held on Saturday 3 September and is expected to be booked up very quickly.

Andy Butts, Group Sales and Lettings Director at Centrick Property commented, “We’re finding that city living is becoming extremely popular in the Birmingham rental market as more and more blue chip companies relocate. Convenience and a high standard of living is key for professional tenants and New Street Chambers offers just. It’s great to be working with EDG Property again with another fantastic development following our work for EDG at The Cube and The School Yard.”

“Offering an executive standard of living each apartment has been refurbished to a high standard and offers stylish Porcelanosa kitchens, integrated appliances, open plan living/dining areas and inset bay windows. Residents benefit from the city living feel of the development.”

These uniquely impressive apartments are available to rent exclusively through Centrick Property. For more information or to arrange a viewing, call the team on 0121 347 6116 (option 1) or email
