The “EPISO 4” opportunity real estate fund ( managed by Tristan Capital Partners) has acquired a prime freehold development site at 103 Colmore Row, Birmingham, in an off-market transaction. The site has planning consent for an office tower of c. 233,000 sq. ft. which, at 26 stories and 105.5 metres, will make it the tallest office tower in the UK’s second largest city.
The development site is located in the city’s main central business district and was acquired from a PATRIZIA AG managed joint venture. The Fund will retain Sterling Property Ventures as the development manager for the project.
Designed by Doone Silver Kerr, the completed building will comprise c. 224,000 sq. ft. of offices, 7,700 sq. ft. of restaurant space on the ground and top 2 floors, as well as a terrace and communal lounge space. BAM Construction Limited has now been formally appointed as the main contractor, having been working on the site since June 2018 under a limited authority services agreement. The tower is scheduled for completion in Q2 2021.
