Derwent Lofts

From lost to foundry

Built in 1902, Derwent House is a grade II listed former foundry in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Just 100 metres from St. Paul’s Square, it was originally constructed for Taylor and Challen – producers of machinery for the city’s metal-working and motor industries.

We’ve given the building a new lease of life.

In a joint venture with Javelin Block, we’ve reimagined the previously derelict space into 40 one and two-bed duplex and single-story apartments. 

Alongside our partners, we’re proud to have restored one of the most iconic pieces of industrial architecture in Birmingham – and to have contributed to the redevelopment of this historic part of the city.
