Bishton Fletcher Building is ideally situated in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, a neighbourhood heralded as ‘national treasure’ by English Heritage.
Housed in one of the area’s most architecturally celebrated buildings, this residence has been sensitively restored and converted into 12 bespoke, modern two-bedroom apartments. The estimated completion date for this project is Q1 2021.
Heralded as a ‘national treasure’ and ‘a place of unique character’ by English Heritage; Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter houses Europe’s largest concentration of businesses involved in the jewellery trade and produces 40% of all the jewellery made in the UK. In a report published by Birmingham City Council in 2008, the council out laid plans to submit a bid for the Jewellery Quarter to receive World Heritage site status. Steeped in incredible history, the Jewellery Quarter is a diverse destination and home today to a bustling food and drink scene. The area continues to enjoy significant local investment and unabated restoration, making it an undeniably attractive place to live and work in the work in the UK. Current regeneration schemes live in the quarter include the Townscape Heritage Programme, the St Paul’s Quarter project, and the University College Birmingham – Moss House Project.
The Jewellery Quarter is surrounded by independent bars and cafes, located in historic buildings which have been converted with many of their original features and characteristics retained. The nightlife within the Jewellery Quarter tends to be a little bit more laid back compared the city centre yet is only a 10/15 minute back into the city centre. As you would expect The Jewellery Quarter, is home to dozens of the jewellery shops and manufactures for anyone looking to find something special and unique.
Emerging as a powerhouse during the Industrial Revolution, Birmingham today is on par with London for culture, leisure and business. A truly cosmopolitan city, Birmingham has retained its diverse character. Many of the UK’s leading businesses can be found in the city, with over 300 companies electing to have their national or global headquarters based here, drawn by its central location, skilled workforce and emerging status on the European stage. Birmingham’s appeal is going to be further enhanced with the arrival of HS2 between 2026 and 2028; HS2 will be Europe’s largest infrastructure project and will bring the city within 49 minutes of London and significantly reduce journey times to Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Newcastle. In turn, this will increase accessibility to jobs and attract businesses to the area.
