The scheme was constructed to look externally as if it were 4 separate buildings of varying architectural styles which reflected the character of the variety of building typologies across the Jewellery Quarter.
The scheme was supported by the Unlocking Stalled Housing Programme offered by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP with the grant administered by Finance Birmingham as their agent.
Scheme completed and handed over on 30th April 2021, despite the challenges associated with COVID 19 lockdowns and securing materials and labour to complete the build.
