Companies looking for offices to let Birmingham, in the UK’s second biggest city, enjoy all the benefits of a large marketplace on their doorstep, well connected to the Midlands M6, M5, M42 motorway ‘box’ and with an enormous range of business, retail and leisure facilities.
The various districts of the city that provide offices to let Birmingham are:
- The ‘core’ central business district surrounding Colmore Row, popular with financial, legal and professional services, and incorporating Snowhill and New Street railway stations and the newly opened Grand Central shopping centre with John Lewis department store and wide selection of restaurants and eateries. Known as Colmore Business District (CBD) and often described as Birmingham’s mini Manhattan, this is the commercial heart of Birmingham, home to some 500 companies that employ up to 35,000 people. The area, which provides a range of offices in Birmingham, is also a Business Improvement District where the local business community works together to collectively invest in projects and services to improve the business environment.
- The Jewellery Quarter, which provides a range of Birmingham offices for small to medium sized businesses and incorporates the Jewellery Quarter railway station, extends from the core to the north west and is also a Business Improvement District.
- Brindleyplace, extending to Five Ways and home to many corporate occupiers with offices in Birmingham, incorporates The Mailbox, Broad Street, Symphony Hall, The International Convention Centre and Broadway Plaza retail and leisure facilities, together with Five Ways railway station.
- Paradise Birmingham and Arena Central Birmingham – areas of new development that will link Birmingham city centre core to Broad Street and Brindleyplace.
- Aston and Eastside is in the process of undergoing significant regeneration and development as a result of the HS2 rail project and the forthcoming new Curzon Street Station. The area also incorporates Millennium Point, Aston University and the new Birmingham City University campus, which includes the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Notably, Aston University’s innovation centre provides many start-up companies with flexible offices in Birmingham, nurturing new business in the City.
- Digbeth and south Birmingham area, incorporating Moor Street railway station and connecting to the core via The Bullring shopping centre, is perhaps the more ‘Bohemian’ quarter, providing offices in Birmingham to many businesses associated with TMT, the arts and education.
