The property is located in the heart of Birmingham's JewelleryQuarter, just off St Paul's Square and close to the canal towpaths.
The Jewellery Quarter is a designated conservation area and proposed World Heritage Site and is already a prestigious and highly desired part of Birmingham. It is experiencing further development as some of the old factories are converted into apartments, restaurants and shops. It is only a short distance to all that Birmingham City Centre has to offer including the Colmore Business District.
The City Centre offers some of the best shopping in the country. The famous Bullring Shopping Centre is only around three quarters of a mile away and contains over 140 shops, including one of the only Selfridges department stores outside of London and the exclusive Mailbox development, which is host to a range of designer outlets including Armani and Harvey Nichols. The recently opened £150m Grand Central Shopping Centre sits directly above the new £600 million redevelopment of the now world class New Street station, including a flagship 250,000 sq. Ft. John Lewis store, in addition to over 60 premium retailers and quality restaurants and cafes. The redevelopment further enhances Birmingham's retail landscape bringing a mix of unrivalled premium fashion and quality high street brands to the heart of the city.
Transport: There are good links to the national motorway network, with excellent access to Birmingham International Airport and The National Exhibition Centre. The A38 Aston Expressway is only around half a mile away and leads directly onto Junction 6 of the M6 which itself is only some 3.5 miles distant.
Public transport by road and rail is also most convenient. Major bus routes stop nearby and there is easy access to Snow Hill railway station for trams and trains. New Street station for intercity and local services is a ten minute walk away.
