"This contemporary new residential development is perfectly located for young professionals to enjoy everything Birmingham has to offer."
Mark Burns

Birmingham, a major UK city located in the West Midlands region, has a population of over 1 million, making it the second most populated city in the UK. The metropolitan borough, which has some of the most sought after postcodes, is also one of the country’s biggest financial centres.

There are numerous opportunities for both individuals and companies alike looking to expand or invest in Birmingham and the major city has great transport connections to both local and international destinations.


Among the UK’s fastest growing centres for digital media ventures, and once referred to as a “seething cauldron of musical activity”, Birmingham has long had a reputation as a hub for creative industries. The city is home to world-class artistic institutions such as The Royal Ballet Company and Symphony Hall, and benefits from the £80 million that is invested annually into the arts.

In the past 5 years, Birmingham’s £24 billion economy has seen a growth rate of an astonishing 19%, making it one of the largest city economies in the UK today. There is a huge and growing demand for purpose built and privately rented accommodation in Birmingham due to the substantial student population that derives from the 5 Birmingham-based universities.

The young and diverse population of the major UK city are passionate about working alongside creative institutions to design, manufacture and engineer and produce innovative technologies and enhance the digital industries in Birmingham. Combined with the strong growth in international tourism, Birmingham gives investors numerous different attractive investment opportunities for both capital appreciation and rental returns.
