Camden Works is Davidson Estates’ latest build-to-rent city centre win

Davidson Estates is highlighting the growing attraction in Birmingham of build-to-rent for developers looking to cater for the future post-Covid 19 generation of workers who want to be able to work from home and walk to their city centre offices, when required.

Ben Davidson, managing director of Davidson Estates, said: “There is a growing trend for build-to-rent developments in Birmingham as there is clear demand.

“Birmingham is one of the youngest cities in Europe with nearly 40% of residents under the age of 25 and is home to the biggest private rental sector in the UK outside of London. We have a growing population of student, recent graduates and young professionals.

“As we move along the government’s roadmap and emerge from lockdown, they are keen to be close to home and work but also, as the city comes back to life, their gyms and nearby communal facilities, shops and hospitality venues.

“With our city centre office in Liberty Place, Sheepcote Street, we are now ideally placed to support build-to-rent developers and are keen to take on more schemes.”

Davidson Estates has been appointed as the letting and managing agents for a new build-to-rent development in The Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham.

Camden Works at 72-74 Camden Street is a luxury development with secure parking, and Davidson Estates has been granted exclusive sole agency rights for the lettings and management.

Ben Davidson added: “The appointment to market and manage Camden Works is a real win for us, and further justification of our decision to open our city centre office.

“As an example of the attractive package and rental levels offered at Camden Works, the development is now fully let.”

Camden Works is a short walk to the Colmore Row Business District and five minutes’ walk from the Jewellery Quarter Midland Metro stop with connections to Snow Hill, Grand Central and Wolverhampton.

Ben Davidson added: “As lockdown is eased and we begin to return to a more normal life, build-to-rent in the city centre will become more and more important, as they offer a more luxury lifestyle and are ideal for both working from home and walking into the city offices.”
