Jun 8, 2022

Leading property developer and founder of Court Collaboration, Anthony McCourt is set to receive an honorary doctorate from Birmingham City University this month for his outstanding contribution to the Midlands property and construction sector.

Anthony, who founded Court Collaboration in 2010, is behind several of the city’s biggest developments including One Eastside – the city’s tallest and first 51 storey residential skyscraper – will receive the honorary doctorate at a ceremony on Thursday 14 July, to be held in Symphony Hall, Birmingham.

Anthony will receive the award from Birmingham City University’s School of Engineering and the Built Environment in recognition of his achievements in real estate development.

Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Court Collaboration founder and CEO, Anthony said:

“I am delighted to receive this Honorary Doctorate from Birmingham City University for my contributions to real estate. Birmingham has embraced me with open arms since I arrived here 21 years ago, just like it has with other migrants to the city, and it’s thrilling to receive this in the year when the eyes of the world descend on us for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. It is a massive testament to the team at Court Collaboration that we have grown with our great city, and we remain dedicated to pushing it forward each day.”

Originally from Northern Ireland, the thirty-nine-year-old former real estate solicitor’s first major experience in development was at Birmingham’s mixed-use landmark, The Cube. Since then, he has gone on to develop some of the city’s largest regeneration projects including One Eastside – home to the planned HS2 hub station on Birmingham’s Curzon Street.

Recognised as a leading expert in residential development across the UK, Anthony also founded Birmingham Metropolitan College’s successful Enterprise Academy which provides students with hands on business experience during their studies, as well as being a former governor and is the youngest ever recipient of the Birmingham Young Professional of the Year Award (BYPY) in 2008.
