The trio of penthouses were added to the roof of the former Thomas Walker buckle-making factory, creating a contemporary extension to the former red brick façade. Each boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and a roof terrace which runs the length of each apartment. All apartments overlook the City’s only Georgian Square, offering views of the churchyard and the City skyline.
Prices start at £275,000 for the 644 sq ft and £500,000 for the 1,232 sq ft two-bed apartments. The scheme’s biggest property, at 1,500 sq ft, boasts three en-suite bedrooms and is on offer for £675,000.
Contemporary fit-outs include Porcelanosa fitted bathrooms and kitchens by Mereway, with integral fridge/freezers, washing machines and dishwashers. There is a choice of carpet and wood laminate.
Chord’s St Paul’s Place is the largest residential development to be launched in Birmingham for more than a year.
The £35m building comprises 148 apartments. In addition to the three penthouses, there are a range of studio, one and two bed apartments, with prices from £129,500.
The scheme wraps around two internal courtyards, one of which is a communal garden designed by award-winning landscape artist Alan Gardner. A footbridge across this outdoor oasis connects the lobby area with the residents’ underground car park, which has spaces for 160 cars. In addition to the courtyard, the development boasts an impressive communal lobby where visitors will be greeted by a 24-hour concierge. The entrance is styled along the lines of a boutique hotel and provides lift access to all floors.
sq ft penthouse combines the best address with the best view in Birmingham. You can literally lie in bed and look out at the spire of St Paul’s church, while from the roof top terrace you can take in the City skyline. We already have pent-up demand for these penthouses, and we anticipate selling them very quickly.”
