The six-month redevelopment which has been described as a ‘masterpiece’ is said to ‘breathe new life into the Old Art School’. The demand for luxury apartments in a central location is strong and this standout building on Lichfield Road in Sutton Coldfield, is now full, with a waiting list of prospective tenants keen to snap up one of the 12 luxury apartments. A joint venture between Urban Village Group and Keyland Capital, the building features stunning interior design and comforts, gaining much attention throughout the Midlands.
The Old Art School is a Georgian-style building constructed in the early 20th century. It sits within the Anchorage Road Conservation Area. Five two-bedroom and seven one-bedroom high specification apartments have been created over four floors. Character features of the Grade II listed building, next to Bishop Vesey Grammar School and BMet College, have been retained.
Kevin Sharkey, CEO of Keyland Capital said: “The Old Art School really is a wonderful building and we have retained as much of the original character as possible. It has been a real privilege to be able to bring life back to this historic building which was vacant for some time. The development has been an exciting project to work on, which includes 12 luxurious apartments in a fantastic location, walking distance from the train station and town centre.”
Urban Village Group has identified Sutton Coldfield as a key location in its investment and development strategy.
