Cordia Blackswan reaches milestone in Jewellery Quarter regeneration project
Property developer Cordia Blackswan has reached a milestone in its Great Hampton Street regeneration masterplan with the practical completion of heritage commercial building refurbishment The Bank.
Located in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, The Bank is an important project in Cordia Blackswan’s vision for Great Hampton Street. The developer has restored a Grade II listed former Lloyds TSB Bank building, offering seven commercial spaces for mixes uses, including office and retail.
The developer has welcomed two new tenants to The Bank, with contractor Garvey Demolition taking residence on the mezzanine floor, and building design consultancy ONE Creative environments (ONE) setting up on the ground floor.
András Kárpáti, deputy chief executive at Cordia Blackswan, said: “Reaching completion on The Bank signifies the start of Cordia Blackswan’s commercial offering and reinforces our overall vision for Great Hampton Street, by welcoming organisations with shared values.
“From the banking hall to the Cordia Blackswan office (HQ), each space within The Bank has been finished to the highest standard, with authentic features restored throughout – that’s what makes the building such a unique place to work. We look forward to welcoming Garvey Demolition and ONE to join our exciting community.”
There are two spaces remaining to let at The Bank – the banking hall and the second floor. The banking hall (1,150 sq ft) comes with an office space behind it (850 sq ft), and benefits from many period features including original windows and the iconic basement ‘bank vault’.
The second-floor office includes a fitted kitchen, two large separated open-plan office spaces spread across 2,300 sq ft, and individual meeting rooms.
