University building set for luxury apartment scheme

How the CopperBox development will look

A former Open University building in Birmingham is set to undergo a complete transformation under plans to turn it into a luxury apartment complex.

The CopperBox development, led by property developer Seven Capital, will see the old office block in High Street, Harborne, converted into a mix of 56 studio and one bedroom apartments.

Located opposite Michelin starred restaurant Turners at 69, the new apartments will occupy a prime position in the urban village, which is popular with an increasing number of Birmingham’s young professionals and families alike.

Andy Foote, sales director at Seven Capital said: “Harborne is currently thriving due to its plethora of café’s, bars, restaurants and shops along the high street and its close links to the city centre. There is an unprecedented high tenant-demand in the area, so this development will go some way in helping to increase the options for accommodation.

“CopperBox offers a fantastic opportunity for prospective buyers to snap up luxury apartment accommodation in what is currently a very sought after area of Birmingham.”

The CopperBox development is expected to be completed in late 2018.
