Bruntwood to name new Birmingham development 'Cornerblock'
Family-owned commercial property developer, Bruntwood, has revealed the new name for its redevelopment of Two Cornwall Street in Birmingham.
Cornerblock’ will offer 110,000 sq ft of workspace to the Colmore Business District in Birmingham city centre when completed later this year.
Rob Valentine, head of sales and asset management at Bruntwood in Birmingham, said: “The workplace is changing and we see this reflected in the wants and needs of our customers. Increasingly business owners are seeking a workspace that gives them flexibility and helps them to develop a strong culture which encourages collaboration, creativity and a sense of belonging within their workforce.”
“With this in mind we specifically designed the building around our corner blocks of connectivity, wellbeing, flexibility and opportunity. Given that we’re reinventing the building we felt that the name needed a revamp too, and it was apt to choose Cornerblock.”
The importance of wellbeing in the workplace is highlighted in the features of Cornerblock, which includes an onsite gym, bicycle storage with showers and a tranquil rooftop garden. Occupiers are also being given a blank canvas opportunity allowing them to design and mould their space to reflect their brand and way of working.
Cornerblock is located on the corner of Cornwall Street and Livery Street, a short distance from Snow Hill train station, Hotel du Vin and a range of amenities on Colmore Row.
