Description

The building is being wrapped around the Grade II listed Whitmore Warehouse and fronts the Birmingham and Fazeley canal. It is built over the former Whitemore Arm canal branch that passed under Charlotte Street when the site was occupied by Elkington Works, where chrome plating was first developed in the 1840’s.
