Symphony Court, city living pioneer of the mid 1990s, sounds sedate in comparison to the schemes now clustering around the city centre, aimed at the new generation of FOBIC
buyers (Free of Baggage in the City).
Signed-up and potential customers include the new FOBIC
(Free of Baggage in the City) generation: young professionals who work in Birmingham and buyers after a city base as a second home for the working week.
The studios, which go up to 355sq ft, would do for first time buyers after a permanent pad or an urban stop-over, ideal for the growing numbers of FOBIC
(Free of Baggage in the City) purchasers, nervous of long commuting and missing the Birmingham 'buzz'.
