Offices Birmingham city centre benefit from the wealth of amenities that the second city has to offer. Birmingham’s residents and visitors have access to an excellent range of public transport links including bus, tram and train.
KWB’s understanding of the market for offices Birmingham city centre stems from extensive activity within it, but also from our continual research into office space transactions.
Birmingham city centre’s property industry has thrived over recent years with the announcement of HS2, notable inward investments from major corporate occupiers such as HS2 and HSBC, and several major developments.
The announcement of HS2’s construction, its Curzon Street station, and its operational HQ at Two Snowhill, has galvanised the property market and the wider economy.
We’ve seen several landmark office space lettings in recent years. Examples of these lettings, seen below, indicate corporate confidence in the city and represent significant amounts of inward investment:
- 2016: PWC took a pre-let of 90,000 sq ft at 1 Chamberlain Square, under construction at the Paradise development, and Network Rail consolidated several regional office locations into 83,406 sq ft office space Birmingham city centre at Baskerville House
- 2015: HSBC committed to relocating its London HQ in Canary Wharf, by taking a pre-let of 212,000 sq ft at 2 Arena Central
- 2014: HS2 announced it would take 100,000 sq ft of offices for its HQ at Two Snowhill
Birmingham currently has its highest level of development in over 15 years, with office developments such as 2 Arena Central and Three Snowhill, retail developments like the new Grand Central and Paradise – which is in progress, and residential developments such as The Bank.
