House hunters and investors can now view first-hand residential opportunities at Hive following the opening of two, one bedroom show apartments at the recently launched residential development.
Part of the £600m mixed-use Masshouse scheme in Birmingham’s Eastside, Hive brings an exciting and innovative new collection of 167 studio suites, one and two bedroom apartments to the city centre, within walking distance of the Bullring.
The first phase of properties released for sale and ready for occupation in March, includes studio suites and one bedroom apartments, with prices starting from £90,000. Coinciding with the first release to the market, Midlands based interior design studio Killer5 was commissioned to dress the development’s first show homes.
Simon James, sales director for Hive commented: “Each property at Hive has been designed to take account of its aspect, elevation and size, creating homes that project individuality and character. The brief for the showhomes was to reflect this by dressing two differently laid out one bedroom apartments in contrasting interior schemes. Killer5 have delivered this with their inspired light and dark creations, which we hope will demonstrate to purchasers how they can inject their own personalities into homes at Hive. We’re delighted that the showhomes are now open and would encourage those considering a city centre property to come and visit what we believe is an exciting new concept in city living at Hive.”
Rebecca Pearce of Killer5 added: “Enjoying a corner position with full height glazing to the open plan living and kitchen area, we have dressed the ‘light’ show apartment in airy shades of white, cream and mauve. Its calming feminine tones are highlighted through a selection of furnishing accessories including iconic, high fashion photography prints. In contrast, the ‘dark’ show apartment, which offers a more formal room layout, has been dressed with an oriental influence, using bold shades of taupe, red and black. Dark wooden furniture, statement artwork and textured soft furnishings combine to create the ambience of a stylish boutique hotel within this property.”
A confident declaration of design led living Hive combines the best in contemporary design with quality finishes and respected brands. All properties are heated by Birmingham District Energy Company (BDEC) – the first time residential homes in the city have benefitted from the city’s district water heating system. Using wet radiators rather than more common apartment storage heaters, residents will benefit from reduced utility bills and an estimated 92 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions.
An air of exclusivity exudes throughout Hive with entry into the building's main reception area situated adjacent to a communal garden designed for residents' private use. Purchasers can choose apartments offering private balconies, with Hive also offering secure basement parking.
