Metropolitan House, also known as 1 Hagley Road, is a commercial building that is being developed into apartments in Birmingham, England. It is situated on the A456 Hagley Road at Five Ways. It was designed by John Madin.
The building hosts several radio transmitting antennas on its roof. These include:
- Capital Birmingham - 102.2 MHz FM
- CE Digital (DAB digital radio) - Block 11C: 220.35 MHz

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.
