New mixed-use canalside neighbourhood caters to Brum’s booming population

Berkeley St Joseph has announced the launch of a new high quality mixed-use development in Birmingham’s Eastside, catering to home seekers looking to embrace quality city living, blending work and social life into one neighbourhood. 

The new canal-side development, named Glasswater Locks, cements Berkeley St Joseph’s commitment to delivering a high standard of residential living for the city of Birmingham and the wider Midlands. 

Glasswater Locks is located in the heart of Birmingham’s Learning Quarter, close to the city centre and the upcoming HS2 Curzon Street railway station. It will feature 716 high quality one, two and three bedroom contemporary apartments and duplexes across seven blocks, alongside 20,000 sq ft of commercial space for local businesses and amenities.

The apartments will be finished to a high specification and residents’ facilities will include a 24 hour concierge, business lounge, games room, cinema and gym, as well as a mix of commercial space housing local businesses, from restaurants to office space. 

The launch of Glasswater Locks comes at a time of sustained growth for Birmingham, as more high profile organisations – such as HSBC, Goldman Sachs and, most recently, Deliveroo – open new offices and large numbers of people look to move to the UK’s second city.
