A Victorian workshop that was once a factory run by an ancestor of actor Martin Shaw (star of Inspector George Gently) is to be converted into plush apartments.
It is set to be turned into half a dozen contemporary apartments by Asquith Homes, the company responsible for transforming the old Jessica’s, the Edgbaston restaurant where Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell worked before setting up on his own.
The new scheme, which will be called No 10 Clement Street, will see it converted into six stylish flats.
The open plan apartments will combine character features with a high quality finish and the discreet application of technology.
The tech will include a secure door-entry system with fob entry, a thermostatic heating system that can be controlled via a smart phone, and a heat recovery system to provide fresh air and improved climate control.
