Birmingham’s landmark city centre residential development – Paradise View – has now been completed by developer Topland and partner CoLico Living. The £25m Build to Rent development forms part of the Paradise regeneration.

The site is immediately adjacent to the city’s £700m Paradise district; the biggest city centre regeneration scheme outside London, which includes 120,000 sq ft of retail space, three new public squares and Grade A sustainable offices. 

“Paradise View is set to be a real asset for the city of Birmingham, transforming a dormant building into high-quality housing and amenities that perfectly complement the wider £700m regeneration of Paradise.”

Sol Zakay, Chairman and CEO, Topland Group

Paradise View includes 159 Build to Rent apartments – a mix of luxury studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments. The first residents are expected to move in this month.

The scheme also includes 5,000 sq ft of retail space, resident amenity space and a 24 hour gym operated by Anytime Fitness. Amenities include co-working space, a media and TV lounge, a roof terrace and cycle parking for up to 90 bikes.

The completed Build to Rent development brings new life to the city’s former Beneficial Building, which had previously comprised offices and Snobs nightclub, but had laid unoccupied for 13 years. The building was reconfigured retaining much of the existing structure to ensure Topland continues to achieve the lowest carbon impact possible.

“We’re proud to have played our part in the rejuvenation of this city centre neighbourhood, which will now become one of Birmingham’s most desirable places to live and work. We look forward to seeing it becoming a key asset for Paradise as we continue to support regeneration across the UK as an investor, developer and lender.”

Sol Zakay, Chairman and CEO, Topland Group

Topland – one of the UK’s largest privately-owned investment groups – acquired the Paradise View site in February 2022. The scheme was delivered by BAM Construction.
