Iconic Birmingham Heritage Site Transformed into Premium Residential Development

As part of their business launch in 2022, UK-based property investment company Joseph Mews is launching a brand new development in Birmingham alongside exciting property developer, Consortia Developments.

As part of the launch, the first images of Lockside Wharf have been released, highlighting the brand-new restoration of the iconic heritage site nestled between Brindleyplace, Jewellery Quarter and the city-centre.

Comprising 61 one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments, Lockside Wharf is a boutique development that features a high-end, designer specification.

Each apartment will feature handleless Poggenpohl kitchens, quartz worktops and wine fridges. Karndean flooring, exposed brickwork and steel will provide a ‘reclaimed aesthetic’, paying homage to the building’s Victorian roots.

One half of Lockside Wharf is a restoration of the original structure, while the other is a newly-developed structure on the neighboring brownfield site.

The original structure is ‘Scotland Works’, a historic Victorian building that has been a hub of manufacturing for Birmingham for 125 years.

Bombed during the war and living out the last 20 years as office space, Lockside Wharf will transform this iconic canalside site into a beautiful residential development.

As the latest addition to the Birmingham residential market, Lockside Wharf is designed for the wave of new tenants that are moving to the city for work at businesses such as PwC, Goldman Sachs and HSBC.

It will be a unique development for buy-to-let investors that want in-demand, high-yielding rental property, while renters will be able to live at one of the most unique developments in the city.

Birmingham remains a top city in the country for rising property prices and property values continue to skyrocket amongst rising demand. This makes Lockside Wharf a one-of-a-kind opportunity to invest in a stunning part of the city.
