Selina Mason, Director of Masterplanning & Strategic Design from Lendlease, said:
"Smithfield is a once in a generation opportunity to reshape Birmingham’s city centre, to unlock the potential and growth of the city and for the long-term economic and social prosperity for the region. Located in the heart of the city, Smithfield will provide a new home for the city’s historic Bull Ring markets, outstanding new leisure and cultural spaces, including a festival square and landscaped park, integrated public transport, and thousands of new homes alongside community facilities.
"We’re delighted to be working with Birmingham City Council to deliver the project, we know that better outcomes can be achieved for the communities we work in when we partner with them for a common good. This includes the community and network found in WMGC, and we’re delighted to renew membership."
