Metropolitan House also known as 1 Hagley Road, is a commercial building in Birmingham, England. It is situated on the A456 Hagley Road at Five Ways. Designed by John Madin, it is home to many businesses including employment agencies, financial organisations and a major public transport operator.
The building hosts several radio transmitting antennas on its roof. These include:

In 2012, under owners Global Henderson a planning application to convert the building into 182 flats and add 4 penthouse floors was accepted. Seven Capital acquired 1 Hagley Road in August 2013 and optimised the planning consent to 271 flats with no alterations to the exterior of the building. One, two and three bedroom apartments will be marketed at between £130,000 and £250,000.
