A CITY DRIVEN BY AMBITION

Birmingham’s evolving landscape

Over the past few years Birmingham has seen unprecedented levels of investment and development, placing it firmly on the world stage. And key to securing this coveted spot has been the addition of brave and bold developments that have greatly enhanced the city’s transport infrastructure and entertainment offering. Developments such as the £600m redeveloped New Street Station, £50m redeveloped Mailbox luxury shopping centre and the £150m Resorts World Birmingham – the first of its kind in Europe.

Of course, Birmingham’s always been a city that draws people in. A place that understands great things can happen when people with purpose come together in one place with a common goal. That’s as true today, as it was over 200 years ago when the Industrial Revolution began. This is a city that never rests on its laurels, or believes good is ever good enough. It’s one full of confidence, ambition and entrepreneurial spirit. With more than a few exciting plans for the next ten years.
