Ardstone secures Planning Permission for the refurbishment of Phoenix House, Birmingham

April 2015

Ardstone Capital has secured Planning Permission from Birmingham City Council for its plans to refurbish 1-3 Newhall Street, more commonly known Phoenix House in Birmingham City Centre.

The refurbishment will improve the floorplates by extending the rear of the 12-storey building and adding a small projection to its front to create a new façade onto Newhall Street.

There will also be a distinct new entrance, improved internal systems aimed at creating an efficient building, ground floor retail space and improved basement parking.

Nick Cashmore of Ardstone commented “Phoenix House has the potential to provide attractive office space in a prime location but changes to the floorplate and presentation of the building are essential in order to achieve a sustainable future. The layout of the office accommodation is in need of improvements and currently is unoccupied. the city targets sustainable office development, it is necessary to adapt existing buildings to accommodate modern user needs. Phoenix House will provide a rejuvenated grade A office accommodation development in the heart of the business district within Birmingham City Centre.”
