Birmingham City Council is working with the Homes England, as well as private sector landowners, to help bring forward investable development projects within the Curzon Masterplan area.

Project background

Birmingham will be at the heart of the UK High Speed Rail network. This project provides a once in a century opportunity to radically enhance the city’s national rail connectivity and accelerate its economic growth potential. A brand new city centre HS2 station, Birmingham Curzon, will be the catalyst for a major mixed use regeneration scheme in a prime location.

The Birmingham Curzon Masterplan sets out the City Council’s aims for the station. It also demonstrates the regeneration potential of the surrounding 141 hectares Masterplan area that could result in a 4 billion GBP economic uplift. The Masterplan will establish:

  • the aspiration for the delivery of an integrated world class station
  • a series of project milestones to achieve this
  • support for wider growth and regeneration of the area

The project milestones include:

  • station design to create a landmark terminus building and visitor arrival experience
  • creation of a high quality public realm
  • a shared space within the city centre terminus

Project description

There are already opportunities to bring forward development across the wider Masterplan regeneration area. A 724 million GBP investment programme has been agreed with Government for Curzon. This programme will:

  • integrate the station into the city centre
  • lead to the expansion of the Midland Metro network
  • provide the necessary infrastructure to unlock key sites
  • bring growth and development forward within the city and beyond

The Creative Quarter centred on Digbeth, is a key part of the HS2 Masterplan area and is home to more than 400 creative companies making it a powerful digital hub.

Likened to Shoreditch in London, Digbeth is definitely a vibrant quarter, with its eclectic mix of street art, music venues, street food vendors and bars and pubs. Regeneration plans in this part of the city aim to enhance its distinctive character and provide scope for new commercial development.
