Cordia Blackswan completes heritage redevelopment
The developer is owned by European company Cordia Group, which is known for its urban regeneration projects across the continent, such as the Corvin Quarter in Budapest
Cordia Blackswan has revealed it has completed the first phase of its heritage development, The Gothic.
Occupying a 0.5-acre site at 1-4 Great Hampton Street, The Gothic provides 14 high-quality apartments and duplexes of one, two and three bedrooms.
The scheme is being delivered across three phases totalling 50 apartments, and phase one is now complete. Having obtained an occupancy permit, the first owners at The Gothic are ready to move in, and the show apartment is finished.
The developer is owned by European company Cordia Group, which is known for its urban regeneration projects across the continent, such as the Corvin Quarter in Budapest.
The developer has “retained and enhanced” the original Victorian-era features of the building, including traditional cornicing, beams, and windows, finished with contemporary fittings.
Working alongside the Conservation Officer at Birmingham City Council and a specialist joinery company based in the Black Country, Cordia Blackswan has installed like-for-like windows to retain the authentic appearance of The Gothic.
Marcus Hawley, managing director of Cordia Blackswan, said: “It is brilliant to see our long-awaited vision for The Gothic come to life, with works now complete on phase one. The creation of 14 elegant and unique apartments will meet the needs of modern residents who are looking for quirky high-quality living space in a prime city location.
“The offering at The Gothic does not stop at residential, we’re pleased to work alongside Griffley Property who are creating commercial spaces to let to local independent businesses to support the community and encourage investment back into Great Hampton Street. The Gothic forms a key part of our vision for the transformation of the street, to act as a local social hub in years to come.”
