King Edwards Wharf Birmingham: Completed

King Edwards Wharf has enhanced the skyline of Birmingham by creating a new landmark in the heart of the city’s booming Convention Quarter.

Its 108 apartments and penthouses overlooking the canal network Brindley Loop have brought a new dimension to city living with a striking mix of traditional and contemporary architectural styles.

Located just a short canal walk away from the International Convention Centre, National Indoor Arena and Brindley Place, it builds upon the dramatic transformation of the area in recent years, which has seen an explosion of new restaurants, offices and cultural amenities.

The £28 million scheme regenerated a formerly run-down industrial site, including the sensitive restoration of two Grade II listed Victorian Buildings fronting Sheepcote Street.

The remainder of the project incorporates a striking modern design rising to eight storeys at the corner of the canal loop, creating a new landmark for this fast-changing district of Birmingham.

The sister scheme to phase I, King Edwards Wharf phase II, is located directly across the Brindley canal Loop in Central Birmingham.

Incorporating approximately 135 apartments, this £29m project is connected to the first phase by a new pedestrian bridge, continuing the remarkable regeneration of this historic district.

The development incorporates breath taking design and characteristics with extensive balconies, roof terraces and other outstanding features.
