Plans for a new scheme of small industrial units in Birmingham have been lodged.
City-based Key Land Capital is behind the project to redevelop the site of Kestrel House in Aston to create seven new-build units.
The company acquired the 16,600 sq ft Kestrel House for £700,000 last year.
A planning application has now been lodged with Birmingham City Council and work is expected to start on site towards the end of this year, subject to planning consent.

Kestrel House is the former headquarters of Hobday, which traded as E-shopfitting, a wholesaler of shop fittings and sign equipment.
The three-storey property was originally built in 1900 and comprises a variety of buildings, which have been acquired and adapted over time.
It includes a showroom, stores and offices and links to adjacent warehousing, workshops and outbuildings.
The redevelopment project will involve demolition of some of the buildings on the site.
Key Land’s managing director Kevin Sharkey said: “Aston is an area we have previously invested in and we see the site as offering a significant opportunity to add value.
“There is a growing demand for small business units and we are confident these will be popular with companies looking for high quality accommodation in a great location with excellent transport links.”
