A CITY DRIVEN BY AMBITION
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.
Designed to meet Birmingham’s growing demand for high-quality office space and city centre residential accommodation, the vision for the site is to create a vibrant, class-leading development, set around a unique and innovative public realm. The site has planning consent in place for the delivery of over 1 million sq ft of mixed-use development. Phase one opened in 2018 alongside the relocation of HSBC from London. Since then, many further developments have been paid including Building 3 at Arena Central being acquired by HMRC.FIND OUT MORE
Located directly outside the ICC, the Square has been redeveloped to make greater use of this fantastic public space. It is also an extended space for your event needs, the space has been utilised throughout the Commonwealth Games, Conservative Party Conference and Birmingham Christmas markets.
The arrival of HS2 brings a wealth of opportunity, with travel times to London being reduced to just 49 minutes. Plus, phase two would reduce travel times to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester.FIND OUT MORE
