28 St Pauls Square, Birmingham
The building sits within the beautiful area of St. Pauls Square, within Birmingham’s prosperous Jewellery Quarter. It has a rich history having been used as a bank, a jewellers, a dressmakers and a button manufacturers before more recently trading as offices and a ground floor gents outfitters.
Within the development, the attractive original façade of the building is to be retained, as will the retail commercial element on the ground floor and basement. The upper floors will be reconfigured to create two large two-bedroomed apartments, with the addition of a spectacular penthouse boasting panoramic views over the historic square below on the newly created third floor.
Hounds Gate, Nottingham
The building sits within a conservation area, right on the edge of Nottingham’s bustling city centre, close to shops, restaurants and bars. Originally a working warehouse, but used more recently as office space, the 5 storey decorative red brick façade and large sash windows project an imposing presence upon the street below.
Full of character internally, the current layout will be re-configured to deliver a completed development consisting of 23 one and two bedroom en-suite apartments.
Whilst the development of one of the apartments will be fast tracked ahead of the others to create a marketing show-flat to facilitate the sale of the apartments within the scheme, the ideal scenario is to sell units ‘off-plan’ before the scheme is complete, reducing the time between development completion, sale & occupancy to zero, so as to gain access to capital as quickly as possible.
