Affinity Living, Select Property's brand and its first in Birmingham, will accommodate 266 one- and two-bed homes in a series of linked buildings of six to 23 storeys, one that also reactivates the canalside to cater to the demands of the Birmingham rental market.

The site will offer large living spaces with new hybrid ways of living and working for young professionals, complete with floor-to-ceiling glazing and fully integrated high-spec kitchens, in addition to a multitude of amenities.

The main amenity space will feature a selection of lounges and workspaces with floor-to-ceiling glazing looking out onto the site's new waterfront garden courtyard.

Wrapping around the site frontage, now taking shape in the images, will be a gymnasium, complemented by a sixth-floor roof terrace.

The scheme has been designed by Corstorphine + Wright and is being constructed by Torsion Construction alongside David Ashley Construction, and a whole host of subcontractors.

The site will deliver 266 one and two-bedroom apartments once work completes in 2025.

Contractor Torsion started works earlier in the month to introduce the foundational piling following months of demolition and repair works to the canal and reinforcements to protect neighbouring sites.

The site will feature a series of linked buildings of six to 23 storeys, one that positively reactivates the canalside to cater to the demands of the Birmingham rental market.

Offering large, contemporary living spaces, with new hybrid ways of living and working for young professionals, LW will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and fully integrated high-spec kitchens, in addition to a multitude of amenities.

These include a state-of-the-art gym, a 6th-floor internal and external terrace, basement cycle storage, co-working spaces, a resident’s & TV lounge, plus a spacious waterfront garden courtyard.

Once complete, Affinity Living Lancaster Wharf will become the fifth property in the Affinity Living by Select Property brand, and its first in Birmingham.

The scheme has been designed by Corstorphine + Wright Architects.

Left standing on site is a historic ornate gateway, which is now being carefully dismantled brick-by-brick before it'll be stored away and reinstalled at a later date.

Once the site is cleared, a major build-to-rent (BTR) development will be built from Select Property Group's Affinity Living brand, offering 266 new homes.

A series of linked buildings of six to 23-storeys will be built around a reactivated canal side to cater to the demands of the Birmingham rental market.

Offering large, contemporary living spaces, with new hybrid ways of living and working, Lancaster Wharf will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and fully integrated high-spec kitchens, in addition to a multitude of amenities.

These include a state-of-the-art gymnasium, an internal and external sixth-floor terrace area, basement cycle storage, co-working spaces, residents and TV lounge, and a spacious waterfront garden courtyard.
