The Copperworks, Birmingham.

20/04/21

A modern, contemporary development of 71 high specification apartments in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, one of the country’s most exciting districts and the most desirable residential area in the city.

Most major city centre landmarks, centres of employment, attractions and transport links can be reached within 10-20 minutes walk of the
Copperworks. This includes New Street Station, Brindleyplace, Colmore Row, The Mailbox, O2 academy, International Convention Centre,
St Pauls Square, Chinatown and University College Birmingham.

The Copperworks occupies a prominent location in the south west of the city’s Jewellery Quarter, a new and thriving residential neighbourhood for Birmingham, only minutes walk from the city centre. Built within the strict conservational guidelines designed to preserve the heritage of the Jewellery Quarter, the development cleverly fuses its past industrial usage with a modern aesthetic to offer
an array of homes full of character and charm.

The Copperworks comprises a range of residences; apartments, duplexes and townhouses. Some are new-build, others form part of the restoration of the centrepiece, the Grade II listed former brass works, dating back to 1854. Traversing Sloane Street and Camden Street and only half a mile from the Jewellery Quarter Metro, The Copperworks is a major new address and an exciting opportunity to be a part of this area’s residential renaissance.
