In brief

Bradford Works will refresh an existing heritage asset with the creation of Birmingham's first shared living environment, complete with 26 apartments, communal living and a rich array of amenities.

The building at 36 Barr Street will be renovated and converted to provide the city’s first shared-living environment, complete with communal living, shared terrace and workspace facilities.

Spread over three floors with mezzanine loft-style apartments and single-storey studios, the heritage building will become an exemplar of what the shared living concept can represent.

Aimed at the young, single working professional, 36 Barr Street will deliver - in addition the above - dining, lounges, games & cinema room, fitness & wellbeing areas; high-quality communal spaces in the form of a chilled-out roof terrace, and a curated offer of social and cultural events.

Externally, the building will be jazzed up and all brickwork restored & repointed; along with the installation of new windows, roof & a blue painted façade. Zero car parking is included, however, 100% cycling provision will be allocated.

The conversion of Bradford Works will begin by early 2022 and is expected to be ready for its first residents within 12 months.
