St Martin's Place proving popular.
A RESIDENTIAL development in Birmingham has almost sold out a year ahead of completion as construction workers "top out" the building. SevenCapital's St Martin's Place project will see 228 apartments built on land next to the Park Regis hotel at Five Ways island.
It is working with construction partners Colmore Tang and Creagh Concrete on the scheme which contains units ranging from one to three bedrooms over four blocks reaching up to 17 storeys.
In what is claimed to be a first for the city, residents will also receive hotel services from the neighbouring Park Regis.
The building envelope is now complete, with floors laid across the development and windows fitted to all levels.
Damien Siviter, group managing director of SevenCapital, said: "St Martin's Place is a flagship development for us so we're pleased to see such fantastic on-site progress from our construction teams.
"This is an important milestone for the project which, having sold out of all but one unit, has already exceeded expectations and everyone is working hard to ensure delivery is on time and to the highest standards."
Steve Underwood, chief executive of Colmore Tang Construction, added: "We have worked with Creagh on developing an innovative solution which has accelerated our programme and offered significant benefits in terms of quality, safety and construction. This project is now our 16th in the region, having delivered 3,500 apartments."
