Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city. A thriving metropolitan center with a growing population of over three million and economic capital of over £623 billion.
Located close to the proposed high-speed rail network linking Birmingham and London, HS2, Westminster Works is an ideal base for commuters to the north and south. On the edge of the Southern Gateway £1 billion regeneration zone Westminster Works offers city living within a vibrant new neighbourhood.
Within an area of current major development, the project is situated around a newly created public space known as Moat Square. This is an opportunity to diversify Birmingham’s leisure, retail and cultural offer, including niche retail, improved markets, family entertainment, residential and space for creative industries.
Birmingham is identified by overseas investors as a source of opportunity, with major strategic developments backed by investors from around the globe. Birmingham is rich in heritage with an established economy and excellent transport links. World-class culture, vibrant nightlife, award winning dining, fantastic shopping and acclaimed architecture are all found in Birmingham.
The site is located in the eastern part of Birmingham. Digbeth is currently undergoing major regeneration on the back of the successful redevelopment of the Bull Ring Centre which is the main shopping destination of the West Midlands.
Currently, there are some significant new planning applications under consideration in the area. The existing site use is a mixture of warehouse units and car parking.
The site is within 10 minutes walking distance from the Bull Ring Centre and less than 1km from New Street Station, Birmingham’s principal mainline railway station. Other public transport links within easy walking distance are Digbeth Coach Station, Moor Street Station and Bordesley Street Station (all within 500m).
On the High Street there are many bus routes which run along Digbeth/Deritend High Streets and Bradford Street. These bus routes are major arteries into the centre of the city from the east.
The site is well connected with the centre of Birmingham due to its proximity and location on one of the main routes into the city.
