KWB is Birmingham’s leading out-of-town specialist for Solihull and the M42. Our portfolio of offices M42 and surrounding areas includes Birmingham Business Park, Meriden, Solihull town centre, Shirley, Hockley Heath, Bromsgrove and Redditch.
Situated in the geographical centre of the country, Solihull and surrounding areas within the M42 corridor enjoy superb road, rail and air links due to their proximity to the M42 / M6 / M40, Birmingham International Railway Station and Birmingham Airport. Businesses are also supported by a wide range of local amenities, including the NEC, Resorts World and multiple retailers, hotels and leisure facilities in Solihull town centre, as well as the centres of Shirley, Bromsgrove and Redditch.
Offices M42 benefit from these excellent communication links and wealth of local amenities. In addition, the infrastructure developments supporting HS2, with its new Interchange Station close to the NEC, and updates to Birmingham International Railway Station, make the area an obvious choice for businesses looking for a strategic office location. The area is renowned for attracting and supporting a diverse mix of business sectors.
The Solihull economy is known for outperforming every other West Midlands sub-region, particularly in the automotive, engineering, manufacturing and professional services sectors. Prominent commercial locations within Solihull, in particular, include Birmingham Business Park, Monkspath Business Park, Cranmore, FORE, Solihull Office Park and Blythe Valley Business Park.
The area is subject to significant future investment and development, including:
- The Hub – an area comprising Birmingham Business Park, the NEC – including the NEC Masterplan – Birmingham Airport, Arden Cross and Jaguar Land Rover
- HS2 Interchange
- Redevelopment of Birmingham International Station
- Westgate and Eastgate developments within Solihull town centre
