Location Highlights

The opportunity is located within the historic Digbeth neighbourhood within the Birmingham City Centre boundary, a short distance to the east of the City Centre Core. While the area has a rich heritage rooted in trade, industry and craft it is also the focus for significant growth and change. Which is considered to represent a great opportunity to set the tone/precedent for this area of the city.

The site sits within the designated Curzon Street Masterplan area which is the focus for major ongoing investment in the location. The Masterplan is centred around the new HS2 Curzon Street station which is approximately 0.5 miles from the site. The site is also within easy reach of the extension to the Metro to Digbeth High Street (approximately 500m distant), the universities' cluster emerging to the north and the wide mix of schemes at various stages of the development process within the immediate vicinity.

The site is well positioned for access to the varied facilities available within Digbeth, including the Custard Factory and the comprehensive facilities available within Birmingham City Centre. It also benefits from direct access to the ring road and in turn the A45, A/M38 and the M6 Motorway.


We understand that all mains services are available to the property with additional information available on the data site. However, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the location and capacity of services.
