Jewellery Quarter Property Development
Within recent years Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter has undergone huge transformation in the form of property redevelopment, preserving the heritage of this area of historic significance.
The largely industrial past has given way to the uprising of office accommodation, boutique hotels and residential apartment blocks, taking advantage of the architecture from the late 18th and 19th centuries, whilst retaining the heart of the retail offering on Vyse Street and surrounding streets
Just down from St Paul’s square, Caspar House resides on Charlotte Street a recent high-quality refurbishment of an existing apartment block, providing 46 1-bed apartments. We as the main contractor Studio Fourteen Interiors Ltd designed and carried out extensive refurbishment within 22-weeks, with lettings proving popular due to the canal-side and central location.
St Paul’s Square, arguably the commercial hub of the JQ, has seen steady investment over the past few years, with 30 St Pauls Square undergoing full internal office refurbishment with extensive works to the hidden gem of a courtyard. The local meeting place St Paul’s House offers casual alfresco dinning and boutique hotel. An area of the JQ wouldn’t be complete without the loft style conversion and redevelopment of residential blocks located on Brook Street and Charlotte Street.
Most recently Birmingham City Council have given the go-ahead to transform the four-acre industrial site including a new pedestrian street stretching from Newhall Street into the centre of the Jewellery Quarter, linking the city centre. St Paul’s Quarter as it will be known will become a shared residential, commercial and retails space containing some 305 apartments and 100,000 sq ft of commercial space.
Further plans submitted in May 2020, if approved will see 57 new homes, commercial building and a refurbished 19th century villa on Camden Street, another move towards finding the balance between the industrial past and today’s residential demand.
The JQ is an ever evolving and hugely popular neighbourhood within Birmingham City Centre, which will only improve in the coming years with investment into central pedestrian and transport links to its heart.
