The latest phase of Edgbaston’s ambitious Masterplan redevelopment has been realised with the launch of a new apartment complex.
Corkfield consists of 375 apartments – including studios to three-bed accommodation – underground parking, 14,000 sq ft of retail space a spacious rooftop terrace overlooking the stadium.
More than 160 of the build-to-rent apartments have now been released to the market with the remainder coming on line next year.
It’s the culmination of seven years of planning and three years of construction.
Edgbaston Chief Operating Officer Craig Flindall said Corkfield is the latest step towards transforming Edgbaston Stadium into a leading, mixed-use destination with cricket and community at its core.
He added: “I’m delighted to celebrate the completion of Phase 2 of the Edgbaston Stadium Masterplan.
“Community is at the heart of the Corkfield development with a 20,860 sq ft landscaped courtyard, wellness studio, co-working spaces and pooch pods as it’s a pet-friendly complex.
“In addition, the Club’s works as part of the Masterplan included a new entrance piazza and car parking zones, totalling over 15,000 square metres.
“The Club would like to place on record its thanks to its development partner, Patrizia AG, main contractor Winvic Construction and the advisor team which included Wilson Owen Owens, Gowlings WLG, Savills, Arcadis & Quadro.
“We look forward to welcoming our new neighbours to Edgbaston stadium next season.”
The apartments range from £1,100 to £2,200 per month and include use of all amenities, maintenance and WiFi to each apartment. There is a 24-7 concierge, residents’ events programme and eight full-time staff will be based on site.
Viewings of Corkfield can be booked at www.corkfield.co.uk. The first residents move in from November.
Olivia Seaton, Asset Manager at PATRIZIA said: “Edgbaston is Birmingham’s most sought-after address, combining easy access to the city centre with a leafy setting.
“As well as the Stadium right on our doorstep, the Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) – with its programme of film, theatre and arts events – and Cannon Hill Park are right across the road. Edgbaston Village, Moseley and Stirchley are all walkable and offer lively bars and bakeries, with restaurants ranging from friendly independents to gastro pubs and Michelin stars.
“Take-up of the apartments has been brisk. More than 800 people are expected to live at Corkfield and we look forward to building a vibrant new community here.”
