Shop near proposed Peaky Blinders film set in Digbeth, Birmingham, on market for £1.25m

A shop close to where some of the new Peaky Blinders movie is due to be filmed in Digbeth, Birmingham, has been put up for sale for £l.25 million

A shop which is located near a new multimillion-pound TV and film studio in Digbeth, Birmingham, is up for sale for £1.25 million.

The commercial property is close to the studio which is where the new Peaky Blinders movie is due to be filmed. The freehold property at 122 Great Barr Street - which was previously used as the Reclamations furniture store - is at the heart of the emerging Digbeth ‘East Side’ area, and it is not far from the construction site for the Digbeth Loc Studios, a major new TV and film studios that is expected to create more than 700 jobs.

This has been set up by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, who has confirmed that the site will be the location for the new movie emanating from the hit TV drama series about the Birmingham gang. The new studio is set to be used for the production of the new Peaky Blinders film as well as Knight’s new BBC inspired music drama, This Town. It will also be used for many other film and television projects in the UK.

The new studios are part of Knight’s long-term vision for the city, alongside business partner, TIME+SPACE CEO Piers Read. Knight says the aim is to create a ‘cultural legacy’ for his home city by welcoming major blue-chip brands to the multimedia headquarters.

There is considerable regeneration already occurring close to the property, including multiple residential and student accommodation developments. The second hand furniture shop at 122 Great Barr Street is on sale for £1.25 million.

James Mattin, managing director agency at Bond Wolfe, said: “This property already forms part of a hybrid planning application to incorporate a six-storey residential development as part of a wider scheme for a mixed development of up to 350,000 sq m of floorspace. If this goes ahead, the wider development could comprise up to 1,850 residential units, car parking, student accommodation and night clubs.

“The overriding scheme covers land bounded by Montague Street, The Grand Union Canal, Barn Street, Milk Street, High Street Deritend, Adderley Street and Liverpool Street, including part of Duddeston Viaduct. But notwithstanding that planning application, we believe that 122 Great Barr Street could be suitable for a variety of uses for any new owner, subject to planning permission.

“The property sits immediately adjacent to the canal tow path and backs onto the original Great Western railway arches. The building itself benefits from security roller shutters opening to an inner courtyard which provides access to ground floor offices and showroom space.

“Stairs give access to basement accommodation and first floor warehouse come show room facilities extending into the railway arches to the rear, and the property maintains many of its original features throughout.” Let’s take a look at the property:
