Last chance at The Forge, says Connells

01 July 2020

Over 95% sold at landmark new development in Digbeth

Local estate agency Connells Birmingham City are delighted to announce that just four properties remain at The Forge – the latest development from Cedar Invest Limited, GJL Property Developers and BJD Limited - comprising 140 luxury one and two bedroom apartments in Digbeth, part of Birmingham’s popular Creative Quarter.

With a number of apartments complete and ready for immediate occupation, the branch is urging all prospective buyers interested in moving to this sought-after area, to act fast for their last chance to secure one of these fantastic new homes.

Built to an impeccable standard, apartments at The Forge are perfectly suited to all the needs of modern family life. Highlights include spacious open-plan interiors, Symphony kitchens with fully integrated AEG appliances, bathrooms fitted with sanitaryware by Gerberit, and a state of the art heat exchange unit. Parking is also available at an additional cost.

"We are extremely pleased at the response The Exchange has received, although it has come as no surprise that the site is proving incredibly popular with buyers looking for a high quality new home set in an exceptional location,” says Katy Harwood, Head of West Midlands New Homes at Connells. “Just a stone’s throw from the many amenities and travel connections the city has to offer, the area is full of character – often referred to as the ‘trendiest quarter,’ and the home of industry in the Midlands. Digbeth was even voted one of the top places to live in the region in The Times Best Places to Live 2020 list.

“With only four apartments now remaining and several ready to move into, we would advise any prospective buyers to get in touch with us as soon as possible so as not to miss out, as we anticipate these homes to be snapped up just as quickly. We would also like to reassure our customers that whilst we are operating as a fully Covid-Secure agency, we are also now offering virtual viewings for total piece of mind,” concludes Katy.

Set in the oldest part of Birmingham, Digbeth is the perfect blend of modern and historic, with many buildings retaining attractive architecture from as far back as the 1300’s. The area has a diverse and vibrant culture, with a vast range of high profile shops, restaurants, schooling, higher education, theatre and arts, leisure and sporting facilities. For those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle, there are also many outdoor pursuits and green spaces, with over 8,000 acres of parkland in the city including the Sutton Park National Nature Reserve.

Moments away from Birmingham’s thriving city centre, and less than five minutes away from Birmingham New Street and Grand Central station, The Forge is ideally located for commuters. The area will also be home to the High Speed 2 – a high speed rail line planned for the near future connecting multiple cities across the country. By road, Birmingham is strategically located for motorway travel with the M5, M6, M40 and M42 all interconnecting in and around the city, and London around 116 miles, or just over two hours away.

Prices for remaining properties at The Forge start from £216,000 for the one bedroom apartments, and from £276,000 for the two bedroom apartments. Buyers can also utilise the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme*, which provides greater assistance for first-time and existing homeowners to get onto or move up the property ladder.  For further information, please contact the Connells Birmingham City branch on: 0121 212 0800 or email: birminghamcity@connells.co.uk
