First unit sold in Grade II-listed development in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter

The first unit in a luxury residential conversion of a Grade II-listed building in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter has been sold in a deal arranged by Davidson Estates.

The estate and lettings agency has already completed on the two-bedroomed apartment in the £4.7 million Sydenham Place development at 26 Tenby Street.

Sydenham Place consists of a pair of three-bedroomed duplex apartments, three two-bedroomed apartments, and a large, executive one-bedroomed apartment. There are also three town houses, each with three bedrooms, with four offices on the ground and lower-ground floors.

The high-quality units in the Urban Rise Developments project range from £299,995 to £599,995 and are being marketed by joint agents, although Davidson Estates is the first to arrange and complete a sale.

Ben Davidson, director of Edgbaston-based Davidson Estates, which has a busy branch office in the city centre, said: “Sydenham Place is a stunning development and we’ve been busy handling a number of keen enquiries from potential buyers.

“We’re delighted to have got the first sale over the line and are now looking forward to selling and completing on the other units.”

Andrew Chan and Israr Iqbal, co-founders and directors of Urban Rise Developments, said: “We’re thrilled to have got the sales and completions of Sydenham Place off the mark and are very grateful to Davidson Estates for their hard work.

“We knew this gated mix of old and new properties with guaranteed parking spaces in such a prime Jewellery Quarter location would be very popular, and we look forward to reporting on more sales soon.”

Construction on phase one of Sydenham Place is due to complete by the end of this month, with phase two scheduled for completion by Spring 2021.

The development is a short walk from the Jewellery Quarter’s vibrant St Paul’s Square, just 15-minutes from Colmore Row and 20-minutes from New Street train station.
