The most expensive city centre apartment ever has been sold in Birmingham.
A penthouse flat in the former Debenhams warehouse in Holloway Head, better known as Concord House, has been bought for £1.8 million - believed to be only the second time an apartment has topped the £1 million mark.
It is another strong sign that the upper end of Birmingham's property market is booming.
It is quite a transformation for the 1930s building whose redevelopment last year was touted as a contender for the infamous architecture prize the Carbuncle Cup by a city councillor who labelled it "utterly dreadful".
The cause of Coun Barry Henley's ire were the two floors which have been added to the top of the five-storey building, enabling the construction of the penthouses and their terraces offering views across the city.
Warwickshire-based Elevate Property Group is behind the £10 million regeneration project which overall has created 15 so-called "loft" apartments and four penthouses.
Managing director Steve Dodd understandably remains coy about the identity of the new penthouse apartment's owner but did at least reveal he is an equity partner with one of the big four accountancy firms.
The resident of the "ultimate bachelor pad" can at least count one pop star among his new neighbours, namely The Vamps' bass player Connor Ball.
Mr Dodd said: "What a nice guy - he just turned up with a skateboard under his arm and his rucksack on his back. We showed him round a flat and he said 'I'll take it, thanks'."
The £1.8 million flat, which is around 4,200 sq ft, has four terraces altogether including one long enough to run sprints up and down.
Mr Dodd had his own eye on the flat but agreed to sell it after the buyer said he could complete his decorative vision for it.
"I sold it on the condition that I got to finish the job. The buyer has bought it fully furnished and with artwork and everything done. To be fair he has left us to it," Mr Dodd added.
