Way of Life - The Lansdowne - Video Thumbnail


Have you seen our brand new video of The Lansdowne? Time to discover what it’s like to live in Birmingham’s first Way of Life community!

Take me to the video

The Lansdowne is just down the road from leafy Edgbaston Village with its bustling boutique cafés, shops and restaurants. And, it’s in close reach of the tree-lined canal sides of Brindleyplace, the business district, luxury shopping at The Mailbox and glorious walks around Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

If you’re on a health kick, head to our Fitness Studio where you can workout, box and practice yoga. And, if you want to have a party with a difference you can use The Cultural Mixer – a private kitchen and dining room with home-cinema and a pool table.

At Way of Life, we make the joys of central living a reality. And we do so without compromise on space, style or service. We deliver spacious apartments in great locations with amenities like gyms, roof gardens and concierges. Then we get the best people to run it, building teams of porters, handymen and security professionals who are always on-call.

We want you to have it all. And our experience in development, property management and hospitality means that you can.

Way of Life was built by friends and business partners who had a vision to deliver a greater living experience. After buying a lettings business in 2013, they were shocked by the poor quality and service residents had come to expect. They knew they could do better and made it their mission to combine high-quality efficiency with high-quality service. And so Way of Life was born.
