Open house at St Paul’s Place

Welcome to St Paul's Place - developer opens doors in series of public open days

Chord (St Paul’s Place) Ltd has announced a series of open days at its St Paul’s Place development in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

The developer is to open the doors at the £35m 148-apartment scheme for four extended weekends over the summer.

To date, viewings at St Paul’s Place have been by appointment only, through sole agents Savills.

But demand for viewings has exceeded expectations, hence the decision to hold open weekends through the summer.

Lisa Hunt, head of the residential sales team at Savills’ Birmingham office, said: “We have more than 300 people waiting for viewings. We simply can’t process these on a one-to-one basis. The open days mean we can offer faster track access to this must-see development.”

The first open days will be on:

Thursday 27 May, from 4pm – 8pm

Friday 28 May, from 10am – 5pm

Saturday 29 May, from 10am – 5pm

Sunday 30 May, from 10am – 4pm

Other weekend viewings will be arranged on a monthly basis over the summer.

St Paul’s Place, on St Paul’s Square, includes a range of studio, one and two bed apartments, plus three penthouses, set around two internal courtyards.

Chord has spent more than three years developing the scheme, which includes the restoration of the façade of the Thomas Walker building, the former buckle maker manufacturer, which fronts onto St Paul’s Square, Birmingham’s only Georgian square.

Chord has created two courtyards and added three new wings to the ex-factory, on Northwood Street, Caroline Street and James Street. The new build extensions have been built in red brick, to reflect the original building.

 At the heart of the development is a communal courtyard, 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 145 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 five floors of the development.

The apartment fit-out is contemporary, with Porcelanosa-designed fitted bathrooms and modular kitchens by Mereway, each with integral fridge/freezers, washing machines and dishwashers. Flooring includes a choice of carpet and wood laminate.

Chord is a Jewellery Quarter-based property company.

Geoff Shuttleworth, a director at the company, said: “St Paul’s Place is the largest city centre residential development to be launched in more than a year, so naturally there is a lot of interest in it.

“Our aim has been to deliver the best specified residential development in the city, equivalent to a five star hotel, at what is probably the city’s best address. But don’t just take my word for it – come and have a look for yourself!”

The apartments, which on average are larger than the majority of city centre apartments, range in size from 340 sq ft for an open-plan ‘crash pad’ to 1,350 sq ft and are priced from £129,500 to £675,000 for a penthouse.
