Located in the heart of the city south on Dudley Road, the pet-friendly Soho Wharf development joins the apartments and townhouse with beautifully landscaped gardens and public waterfront spaces sitting on the Birmingham Canal Old Line.  

The apartments are ideal for young professionals or students looking to live ten minutes from Birmingham city centre, whilst the townhouses are perfect for families with children, with 61 of the 99 apartments and three of the 24 townhouses discounted to 20% market rent, offering affordable units.

Apartments include modern furnishings and neutral tones offering a contemporary living space, each complete with high spec, modern bathrooms and fully fitted kitchens using Smeg appliances. The majority of apartments include private balconies, and for those with their own furniture, 10% of the apartments available will remain unfurnished.

The townhouses are laid out in a semi-detached fashion and all benefit from generously sized private gardens, balconies and their own dedicated car park space. Children can also enjoy the fully equipped onsite playground, and Barford Primary school is a stone’s throw away, rated Good by Ofsted. With a key focus on sustainability, all townhouses are fitted with solar panels along with electrical charging points in the car park spaces.

Two central green spaces – The Meadow and the Garden – total 38% of the site, providing a vast amount of desirable outdoor space and a community feel. Another green space located canal-side will provide fluid connectivity for direct access to the city centre via a new public bridge which is set to open on 3 April 2023.
