Former button factory up for sale

A dilapidated former button factory in Birmingham is up for sale.

The building is one of the lots featuring in Bond Wolfe Auction’s next online sale later this month.

The site has been used for button manufacturing since at least the 1930s.

The building extends to more than 10,000 sq ft but is largely in a poor state of repair.

As a result it is listed for sale in the Bond Wolfe Auction’s online auction on 31 March with a guide price of £135,000.

Ian Tudor, managing director of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “The size and scope of The Button Factory makes it highly suitable for redevelopment for a variety of potential uses.

“The property comprises of a range of offices, workshops and stores with a yard area, so it would still suit commercial operations of different sorts.

“But the site could also be used for the development of new homes if planning permission was secured.

“It sits in a prominent position on Maypole Lane in a popular and well-established residential neighbourhood near Kings Heath, Solihull and Hollywood.

“It is the kind of adaptable property that has become increasingly popular to a wide range of investors and developers, and given the attractive guide price we expect a high degree of interest from bidders on auction day.”
