Located in one of the city’s most affluent eighbourhoods, there will be ignificant interest in this rare chance to buy a luxury new apartment in
the very heart of Harborne village.

This is a unique investment opportunity in a highly-prized location wthin the UK’s second city. Birmingham has been identified as one f the strongest regional locations for residential investment, with an
abundance of regeneration projects alive in all quarters of the city.

With world-class entertainment and leisure facilities, as well as a swathe of significant investment in key infrastructure projects, Birmingham’s appeal as a place to live, work and play is increasing by the day.

The hive of regeneration projects across the city has created a ripple effect into the surrounding areas, with new shops, bars and eateries arriving on the scene all the time. Birmingham is not a city that is standing still – high profile projects
such as HS2 are keeping its continued resurgence on track, taking its transportation infrastructure to the next level and further enhancing its appeal for investment.

The type of tenant that The Copperbox will be either a mature professional typically aged between 25 - 40 or a medical student / medical professional as the university has one of the largest medical schools in the country and the QE is obviously very close by.The mature tenant will have lived in the city since leaving University and working for the likes of KPMG, HSBC etc and they will be looking at Harborne as more of a long term plan and usually rent the apartments in the area to get a feel of it before buying. This is a very common story that I used to hear with all of the first time buyers in the area, these types of tenants are also likely to have a vehicle and therefore need parking.The medical student / professional will want to be very close to the hospital as they work different shift patterns and want it to be as convenient as possible, medical students do not want to be in private halls or anywhere near Selly Oak which is typically where most of the general students live. They are prepared to pay higher rents for the convenience and also privacy whilst they are studying. This type of students stay for 5 years before going practicing medicine full time, many of which are then working in one of the cities hospitals or as far as Worcester or Stafford. They still want to stay in Harborne during this time as the posts at the hospitals for the first few years are short and they can be moved around the Midlands. Harborne is a central location for this which is also very accessible to the motorway links.The Ministry of Defence also rent a lot of apartments by the hospital to house the doctors and nurses who work for them in the hospital, they also house the injured service men and women during their rehab process. The type of apartments need to be low maintenance, accessible to the hospital and also have lifts to all floors. Although the tenant is a more transient type, the actual contract is with the M.O.D. who take long term contracts and also pay whether it is occupied or vacant. This is a lucrative type of tenancy agreement and is very common in Harborne.
