Weekender: Developer offers sneak preview of latest apartment scheme

Tennant Street Lofts

A property group behind some of Birmingham’s most exclusive residential schemes has unveiled its latest project.

Elevate Property Group’s 40 two-bedroom apartment block in Tennant Street is expected to complete in late autumn (see images below).

The development is Elevate’s fifth Birmingham project and follows Concord House, Queensway House, St Paul’s House and Honduras Wharf.

An invited audience was given a sneak preview of the scheme at a VIP launch held at of the offices of Knight Frank in Birmingham last night (January 18).

The selling agent is expecting the new scheme’s location, close to the sites of Arena Central, The Mailbox and Brindleyplace, to attract significant interest.

Elevate Property Group’s managing director Steve Dodd said: “Since we took the strategic decision to relocate our offices into St Paul’s Square, Birmingham has become a key focus for us.

“This launch comes at a time when the city is seeing continued growth in city living, with many from London and the South East relocating to Birmingham.

“But we are also targeting the city’s young professionals as the financial sector in Birmingham continues to grow and thrive.”

Peter Smith, of Knight Frank, said: “Tennant Street Lofts is a classic example of the right development in the right location at the right time.

“It is a ten-minute walk from most major employers in the heart of the city with New Street Station and the city’s major retail offer all close to hand.”

Prices for the new apartments start from £250,000. Ten of the apartments feature a balcony and sizes range from 653 sq ft to 791 sq ft.

The development has been designed by Rickett Architects, with BACE Construction Consultants working with regional contractor J A Ball on delivery.

Mr Dodd added: “We have several hundred apartments in our pipeline for Birmingham and over a thousand in other cities across the UK in a number of deals completed in the last 12 months.

“We are keen to bring these forward as soon as possible to meet pressing demand for quality living space.”
