Corkfield apartments win prestigious residential property award

Edgbaston’s Corkfield complex has been named Apartment Development of the Year at the prestigious Insider Midlands Residential Property Awards.

The 375-home development – built adjacent to the stadium on former derelict housing – fought off strong competition from high-end projects across the region to land the accolade at the awards event at Birmingham’s Eastside Conference Centre.

Corkfield opened to residents in November and is Phase 2 of Warwickshire CCC’s Masterplan to transform the stadium and its wider estate into a multi-use sports, residential, commercial, and community destination.

Accommodation ranges from studios to three-bed accommodation, with underground parking, 14,000 sq ft of retail space, and a spacious rooftop terrace overlooking the stadium.

Edgbaston Chief Operating Officer Craig Flindall, said:

“Corkfield is a stunning development and this award is testament to the development, design and ethos of the complex. There is a real focus on community, with shared spaces and a policy of working with local independent suppliers and businesses.

“Phase 2 of our Masterplan also saw the opening of Xcelerate with Edgbaston which is a new catering and hospitality centre of excellence, operated with our catering partner Levy, which promises great career opportunities at the stadium.

“Phase 3 is our ambition to re-develop Edgbaston’s Raglan and Family Stand with an incorporated four-star hotel.

“Later this summer we will be consulting on the project with local residents and businesses and we would encourage people to take part in that process.”

Corkfield is ranked first of 32 developments in Birmingham on the website Homeviews – an independent property review site – and was named the Best Build to Rent Community in the HomeViews Resident Choice Awards 2024.

Community Manager Mohammed Salman, from Native Residential which manages Corkfield, said:

“To receive these awards from our peers in the industry, and from residents, is a fantastic achievement and testament to the community we’ve created at Corkfield.

“In such a wonderful location and working so closely with Edgbaston, Corkfield is a fantastic offering to support the demands of the Birmingham rental market.”
