East & Green is a striking modern development situated in the centre of Digbeth’s regeneration, just a 5-minute walk from The Custard Factory and Smithfield and just 20-minutes to the city centre. The building is comprised of high specification one and two bedroom apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows offering sweeping views of Birmingham and surrounding areas.
Merchant Square Capital is a niche developer focussing on producing high-specification apartments in key market locations. Having previously developed in commuter towns, they have identified Birmingham as an area that will exhibit strong price and rental growth over the coming years with the new HS2 making Central London reachable in just 45 minutes.
Birmingham is the UK’s largest city outside London and one of the youngest in Europe, with 40% of its population under 25. Located in the heart of the UK, 90% of the population can drive to Birmingham in under four hours.
With the highest quality of life in the UK after London – but with a cost of living that is 60% less – Birmingham is expected to see rapid growth over the next few years. The average price per square foot in Birmingham is expected to increase from £242 to £500 by 2020 in the city’s highest quality developments, making it a prime location for property investment.
