We’re pleased to share that reservations are now being taken on our brand-new development in Wolverhampton.
Home to the former Springfield Brewery yard, the 64-unit scheme has completely rejuvenated the site, which has lay vacant for the last 25-years. This is our second site with partners Keon Homes, working in conjunction with Birmingham-based architects BM3 to ensure that the build complements the local heritage of the area and reflects its historical significance.
The 33 one and two-bedroom apartments and 31 two-bedroom homes will welcome their first tenants from November, meaning that residents will be in their new homes in time for Christmas. Properties available include The Starley, a modern two-bedroom apartment from £670 PCM, and The Hobbs, a two-bedroom home with a study from £790 PCM.
Commenting on the launch of the new development, Anne Malone, Head of Customer Experience at Wise Living, said:
“More than £10bn has been invested into the BTR market in the last five years, with Birmingham and the surrounding areas highlighted as one of the major growth areas for the next decade. We’re delighted to be launching our third development in the West Midlands and our second in partnership with Keon Homes, after working together on the hugely popular Herbert House scheme in Coventry. There’s increasing demand for high quality rental properties in Wolverhampton for couples and families and we’ve already had significant interest in the development
We’ve worked hard with our partners to transform a former derelict space on Cambridge Street into something we’re all hugely proud of. A crucial part of the project has been about working with our partners to create design features, aesthetics and landscaping that complement the surroundings but are also sympathetic to the area’s heritage. We look forward to welcoming our first residents over the next few months!”
Earlier this year we spoke to 1,000 renters across the UK about what really matters to them. Living close to green space came out on top with almost half (45%) putting it in their top three priorities, while good transport links (38%) and access to local amenities (37%) took the other top spot. The demand for BTR to expand into more suburban areas to cater to these needs continues to rise, with Springfield Brewery being the perfect example of what a difference these developments can make to the local area.
Prior to launch, Wise Living and Keon Homes have been shortlisted for their work on the Cambridge Street development in the Private Rental Sector Deal of the Year category at the 2021 RESI Awards – one of the residential property sectors biggest award events.
