Sector and market opportunity
This project gives investors an opportunity to radically enhance the acceleration of Birmingham’s economic growth potential.
The development aims to restore the urban fabric along UTS and provide an urban environment for both pedestrians at street level, those walking along the potential future Sky Park and passengers travelling in by train.
When complete, the development will consist of approximately 943 homes, including 1, 2 and 3-bed flats as well as duplex apartments.
It will also have a live-work space, a creative, cultural and shared event space, 60,000 square feet of commercial space and a 133-bed hotel.
The new development will be at heart of Birmingham city centre. The area is currently undergoing significant large-scale transformation and is now home to many global firms such at HSBC, PwC and most recently Goldman Sachs.
South Birmingham has strong development potential and will create a great community for people to live and work.
It is close to Birmingham city centre and there are planned improvements to transport infrastructure, including the development of the new West Midlands Metro line and HS2 Curzon Street station.
