MEPC has completed phase one of the development with One Chamberlain Square and Two Chamberlain Square overlooking the city’s most important civic space with its impressive Classical and Victorian architecture.
PwC, the leading professional services firm, moved its 2,000-strong team to One Chamberlain Square in 2020 and has since been joined by DLA Piper, Knights, Mazars and Atkins at Two Chamberlain Square, while Arup has committed to three floors of One Centenary Way, the latest commercial building.
In 2021 the project team submitted plans to complete Phase Two of the development with another commercial building and a new boutique hotel as well further new public realm.
At almost 2 million square feet, Paradise is delivering up to ten new flagship buildings including the world-first pure Octagon residential tower, which is now on-site, as well as offices, shops, bars, cafés and restaurants.
Paradise is being brought forward through Paradise Circus Limited Partnership (PCLP), a private-public joint venture with Birmingham City Council. The private sector funding is managed by Federated Hermes, which partnered with Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) on the first three buildings.
MEPC is the development manager. Paradise sits in the country’s largest city-centre Enterprise Zone and has benefited from investment by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP).
