Phase 1 of the King Edwards Wharf (KEW) development (post code B16) is situated just off Sheepcote Street and was completed in 2001 by the MCD developers at a cost of £28m.
KEW Phase 1 comprises 108 apartments and penthouses with a striking mix of traditional and contemporary architectural styles.
The apartments surround a private courtyard and most apartments overlook the BCN canal network, either the Main Line or “Oozells Loop”.
Ease of living is enhanced with an underground secured car park with gates which are opened by a fob in your car as you approach. Most apartments have at least one space.
Again ease of living is enhanced by lifts rising from the car park to all floors.

Phase 1 is the rectangular building with a courtyard inside in the middle left of the image.
In the lower right is the canal side gem for the hungry, thirsty music cravers, the characterful Fiddle & Bone pub and behind it The Roundhouse, an historic listed building.
The BCN canal runs between these two building clusters and also round the far side of Phase 1.
