Inside the Birmingham luxury apartment, The Gothic, that costs upto £1m
Located on a 0.5-acre site at 1-4 Great Hampton Street, The Gothic is meant to be transformed into 50 apartments in three phases
A piece of Jewellery Quarter history has been restored.
In phase one of the heritage development, The Gothic, 14 high-quality apartments and duplexes of one, two and three bedrooms are primed to be sold. The apartments are located in a Grade II Listed and heritage building, and start from £250,000 and go up to £1,049,000.
The Gothic has a rich history and has been home to many Jewellery Quarter landmarks, including The Gothic Inn, Gothic Stores and the Gothic Works. Some of the building’s features date back as far as 1870. It also won the Apartment Development of the Year at Insider’s Midlands Residential Property Awards.
Located on a 0.5-acre site at 1-4 Great Hampton Street, The Gothic is meant to be transformed into 50 apartments in three phases.
Cordia Blackswan, the developers of the property, is owned by European company Cordia Group and 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, the developer has installed like-for-like windows to retain the authentic appearance. Windows have been replaced across the four buildings, bringing the thermal and acoustic performance of the development up to modern standards in phase one.
The original exterior features of the building have also been restored, including the original turret to its Gothic-style glory. Cordia Blackswan has also worked closely with Edgbaston-based stone masons William Parratt to peel away decades of paint and expose the original brickwork hiding underneath.
“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,” said Marcus Hawley, Managing Director of Cordia Blackswan.
