Rising up from a new construction site at 5 Highfield Road, Edgbaston, will be a grade A, self-contained office building that offers what is promised to be the best of both world for office occupiers.
This speculative three-floor development is said to be the only new, self-contained office building available on the Calthorpe estate this year.
Designed along the traditional lines of a classic rendered Edgbaston property, the 3,110 sq ft property will feature a contemporary interior configured to maximise space and efficiency, with raised floors for data-cabling, comfort cooling and lift access to the upper floors.
Importantly, the property - designed by Bristol-based architects Atkins Walters Webster - comes with on-site parking for nine cars.
Richard Dickson, development manager for landlord Calthorpe Estates, says: "This building offers the best of both worlds - it has been designed in keeping with the area and the Georgian, grade II listed buildings that it sits among and it will satisfy the needs of today's discerning occupiers, who require modern amenities such as disabled lift access and comfort cooling."
His enthusiasm is shared by letting agent Ben Thacker, of property advisers GVA Grimley, who is quoting a rent of #18.50 per sq ft - including car parking.
"This building will sit very much in the Edgbaston gateway into the city. It offers contemporary space in a much-sought-after, high-profile location," says Mr Thacker.
"There are few opportunities for companies seeking to establish and build their own identity from self-contained premises of this size, that have the interiors more synonymous with large, newly-built multi-let buildings."
