Timber Yard in Birmingham, the UK's most investable and energetic city

| Presented by Fraser & Co and CBRE to Hong Kong and Asian buyers 22 Oct 2018

Now available for sale in Hong Kong through agents Fraser & Co and CBRE, Timber Yard is located in Birmingham's Southside district, consisting of 379 apartments laid out as studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes. The complex will be built on a 1.58-acre car park site on Pershore Street, and bounded by Claybrook Street, Hurst Street and Skinner Lane.

Designed by Claridge Architects, the development will boast a large courtyard garden, concierge service, sheltered bicycle storage and landscaped pocket parks. There are 95 secure parking spaces for residents. The scheme is called The Timber Yard in tribute to the history of the area, which was known for its timber and scrap metal yards and plywood and aluminium works.

The communal areas of Timber Yard include a 24-hour concierge with communal foyer, fully equipped gymnasium, residential club and lounge, concierge desk and undercroft parking. There is also secure cycle storage, landscape communal gardens and carpeted lift lobbies, stairs and common corridor. The courtyard is private for residents only.

Birmingham is a city with a growing reputation on both the national and international stage. Public and private sector investment in commercial and residential development and major infrastructure projects, such as HS2 and the Metro extension, have created an environment that is attractive to investors, businesses and residents alike.

Timber Yard is located in Birmingham's Chinese Quarter "Chinatown" where there are restaurants and cafes offering authentic menus from Northern China all the way to Malaysia, with some of the city's hippest nightspots in between. Chinatown is located just five minutes' walk from New Street Station and is adjacent to the Bullring.

Local landmarks include a stone pagoda, donated by a prominent local Chinese business as well as Chinese architectural flourishes around the Arcadian and surrounding area. Also, across the road from Timber Yard is Birmingham Smithfield, a 14-hectare regeneration site. Plans for this 500m development include: new homes, office space, retail markets, new public space and a new family leisure quarter. It is one of the largest city centre development sites in Europe. Birmingham will also be the UK's first 5G city; the infrastructure should start going live from next year.

Being the UK's second city and the youngest city in Europe, with 40% of its population under 25, Birmingham is full of entertainment, leisure, nightlife and dining with options of 5 Michelin starred restaurants. Birmingham is also home to top FIVE universities, along with well-established schools and colleges and has the largest student population outside London. The closest airport is Birmingham Airport. This airport is potentially becoming an international gateway by 2026 due to regeneration programme.

1 Beds start at 199,000- and two-bedroom apartments from 291,500; completion scheduled in Q4 2020 - Q1 2021.
