Location overview

Affinity Living Lancaster Wraf location

In the heart of Birmingham city centre, Lancaster Wharf is just a stone’s throw from key business district, Colmore Row, and is of walking distance to the city’s main leisure and transport hotspots, the Bullring Shopping Centre and Birmingham New Street.

Known as the UK’s second city, Birmingham is a vibrant metropolis and a global centre for business and tourism. Attracting people from all over the world, Birmingham exceeded expectations for its hosting of the Commonwealth Games 2022. Praised for diversity and delivery, Birmingham was able to showcase its potential for an audience of over a billion people. Birmingham property prices are expected to rise by an impressive 19.2% by 2027 according to JLL, with the legacy of the Games cited as a key driver.

By the 18th century, Birmingham was the greatest industrial city in the world. Largely due to its 100 miles of canals, the city played a key role in the transportation of coal, iron and other heavy goods. Today, it still reaps the benefits from a long history as a leading centre of trade and market innovation.

As the beating economic heart of the Midlands, Birmingham is a major employment hub. The city centre population has increased by 132% in the last 20 years alone, with 11% more companies there than ever before, largely thanks to a ‘North-shoring’ trend of companies moving away from London, including Goldman Sachs, HSBC, and BT.

Birmingham is a leading investment city, recognised globally for its strong rental returns and property price growth. As a result of record demand and limited supply, average achieved rents in Birmingham are up 14.5% year-on-year.

Birmingham also has the youngest city population in Europe, with research showing that 19-29-year-olds make up 42% of the city’s population – a prime demographic of the build-to-rent sector. In addition to this, the city’s average salary is up 44% since 2012, aligning with the changing priorities of city centre renters looking for more central homes with better amenities.

Home to 8,000 acres of green space, the busiest theatre in the UK, the most Michelin star restaurants outside of London and more canals than Venice, Birmingham is attracting renters and tourists from all over the world. An attractive prospect for students, Birmingham is home to five established universities including Russell Group, the University of Birmingham.

A global shopping hotspot, Birmingham is home to the iconic Bullring shopping centre, Selfridges, and Harvey Nichols. The city’s Jewellery Quarter has the highest concentration of jewellery production in Europe and is responsible for 40% of the UK’s jewellery production, attracting tourists from all over the UK.

Lancaster Wharf is just an 18-minute walk or a 6-minute drive to the busiest interchange railway station outside of London, Birmingham New Street Station.

A central hub reachable by 90% of the UK in less than 4 hours, Birmingham is the most connected regional city in the UK. Home to the busiest interchange railway station outside of London, Birmingham New Street Station connects the country, supporting the government’s ‘Levelling Up’ agenda. This connectivity will improve further with HS2, which will reduce the direct-train link to London from 1 hour 24 minutes, to just 49 minutes by 2029.
