Property design company signs deal

A property design company has instructed Principle Estate Management to look after its new mixed-use property in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Principle will manage Liv Projekt’s units at 1 and 2 Legge Lane which includes nine townhouses, four “live and work” units which the developer is retaining to rent out, and a further commercial unit. The residential units include one two-bedroomed townhouse and eight three-bedroomed townhouses.

Robert Simonds, a partner at Principle who heads the firm’s new build portfolio, said: “We’re delighted to have won this bespoke mixed-use development as Principle’s presence continues to expand within the Jewellery Quarter.

“We have worked closely with Liv Projekt on the set up of the scheme and have advised on a number of management strategy items. The first residents have now moved in, and we have now been contracted to manage the development as part of our new build portfolio.”

The Legge Lane development saw Liv Projekt working with award-winning Sjölander da Cruz Architects on a design that reflected the history and industrial architecture of the Jewellery Quarter.

Liv Projekt said that pen manufacturers, cigarette case makers, jewellery box producers and a safety razor works were just a few of the trades that had been based at 1 and 2 Legge Lane over the last century and a half.
