Open University will be transforming one of its buildings into a luxury apartment building.

The Decision

Open University will be transforming one of its former buildings in Birmingham into a luxury apartment building. The building is on High Street, on the other side of “Turners at 69”, the Michelin star restaurant.

The transformation will be done by the Copperbox development, which is run by Seven Capital, the property developer. The building will reportedly have a mix of 56 one-bedroom condos and studio apartments. Its completion date is expected to be in late 2018.

Comments on the Luxury Apartment

The Seven Capital sales director, Andy Foote, said: “Harborne is currently thriving due to its plethora of café’s, bars, restaurants and shops along the high street and its close links to the city centre.

“There is an unprecedented high tenant-demand in the area, so this development will go some way in helping to increase the options for accommodation.

“CopperBox offers a fantastic opportunity for prospective buyers to snap up luxury apartment accommodation in what is currently a very sought after area of Birmingham.”

According to their website, Andy Foote is also a fundraiser for the “Brain Tumour Charity”, which he does through “The Joseph Foote Charity Ball.” He says he usually aims to fundraise $500,000 a year for the charity
