The Incredible Cube Development by Andrew Kay
The Cube is possibly the most prestigious residential and commercial development in Birmingham and Arkade Property is honoured to have had the opportunity to rent and sell a number of the properties in this, one of Birmingham’s most iconic landmarks.
The Cube is a world-class destination standing tall across the city’s skyline. The outstanding 25-storey structure houses an impressive mix of prime office, retail and restaurant spaces, aspirational apartments, a boutique hotel, exclusive canal side restaurants, skyline champagne bar, luxury spa facilities, and the UK’s largest automated car park.
High profile names established at The Cube include Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse Bar & Grill, The Club & Spa, Rodizio Rico Brazilian restaurant, Adee Phelan Salon and Hotel Indigo.
Perfectly situated in the heart of the city, The Cube is next to The Mailbox and a few minutes walk from the convention centre, The Bullring, Brindley Place and New Street Station.
Birmingham born, award-winning architect, Ken Shuttleworth was chosen to create a truly outstanding building to marry the city’s industrial heritage with a vision of the future. Taking inspiration from Birmingham’s jewellery making tradition, he has designed what he describes as ‘an enchanting jewellery box’ rich with light and precious metal tones. The Cube’s unique style of intricate gold and bronze geometric shapes cover the exterior and glisten across the city. With Ken's involvement in previous schemes including London's 30 St Mary Axe building, commonly known as 'The Gherkin' and Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok airport, The Cube makes another striking addition to a world class portfolio.
Inside the building’s central courtyard atrium area is an exclusive portfolio of art pieces by contemporary artist, Temper. Commissioned to create a series of art installations, Temper showcases his first works in sculpture at The Cube. Dedicated to and influenced by ‘The Lovely People’ of the city he loves, each of Temper’s pieces immortalises a real person who has inspired others and demonstrates a source of pride for the city. Known for his street art, Temper boasts Saatchi and Saatchi, Roman Abramovich and Coca Cola amongst his clients.
Arkade Property is currently involved in the rental and management of several one and two bedroom apartments in the Cube on behalf of some of its many buy to let investors. We are also instructed to sell a selection of top quality apartments there, ranging from the spacious one bedroom apartments to imposing two bedroom penthouses, some with roof terraces.
