Birmingham is one of the fastest growing cities in England. With its ever changing skyline and rapid expansion, it is easy to see why people are drawn to it. Over recent years, the city has undergone many new developments and regeneration projects. Heavy investment in the city is ongoing, with a fast paced and innovative range of initiatives. Here we take a look at five of the biggest developments planned for 2023 in the heart of Birmingham City Centre.
New Garden Square
New Garden Square is located to the west of Birmingham City Centre. Led by Calthorpe Estates, the £330 million regeneration project aims to modernise largely unoccupied outdated commercial buildings. The 10.7 acre project will be filled with new offices, beautiful apartments, restaurants, bars and shops, set around a stunning square garden. Set within walking distance from the City Centre, New Square Garden is going to be the ultimate hotspot for businesses and property owners.
HS2 – Curzon Street Station
Birmingham’s Curzon Street Station, part of the controversial HS2 project, will be at the heart of the country’s new high-speed railway network. With seven platforms and a new public space, the new station will be net zero carbon when it operates, making it the most environmentally friendly station in the world. It will also join and extend the existing tram network, enabling people to have more choices about where they work and live.
Located in the heart of the city, the Smithfield project will become the new home for the city’s iconic Bull Ring markets. The £1.9 billion scheme will also include 3,000 houses, shops, a hotel and a new landscaped park. The ambitious project aims to contribute to the long-term transformation of Birmingham, whilst integrating the established roots of the legendary Bull Ring markets.
105 Broad Street
Broad Street is already well known for its dynamic and lively entertainment, from canalside restaurants and bars, to nightclubs and comedy venues. Now 105 Broad Street is upping the game, with its prime location, just 5 minutes walk from Brindley Place. The panoramic views will draw residents to this state of the art project. Offering stunning 2-bedroom properties, 105 Broad Street will give its residents airy open plan kitchens, spacious bedrooms, onsite gym access and a 24-hour concierge and a dry-cleaning service. Car parking is also available for residents, which is a huge selling point, and not easy to come across. 105 Broad Street is the ideal location for those working in the city. When you find your ideal property, conveyancing Birmingham can be stress free. Firms such as Sam Conveyancing can help with the entire process.
103 Comore Row Tower
103 Colmore Row Tower is the country’s tallest office block outside of London. The 354 foot tower dominates Birmingham’s skyline and can be seen from New Street, Birmingham Cathedral, The Mailbox, and the Jewellery Quarter, amongst others. The top floor has a stunning restaurant with panoramic views of the city, whilst the 18th floor has a 3,000 square foot private terrace. Businesses will be fighting to occupy the space. With 7,500 of restaurant space and an abundance of multi-purpose, lobby styled business lounges, 103 Colmore Row Tower will certainly be the place to work.
