At MIPIM 2022 UK Central Solihull will be showcasing ambitious plans for the UK Central Hub, home to Birmingham Airport, Birmingham International Station, the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Jaguar Land Rover, Birmingham Business Park and Arden Cross, the new mixed-use destination which will be the location of the new HS2 Interchange Station – the first outside London.
The Hub has the potential to support up to 70,000 jobs and deliver over 650,000 sq m of prime commercial space, 8,000 new homes and £6.2 billion GVA per year.
Our Urban Growth Company is leading infrastructure investment and development to create a brand new, sustainable urban quarter at Arden Cross, with high-speed rail and unrivalled connectivity at its heart.
The NEC masterplan proposes the transformation of over 67 acres to new residential, office, leisure and community spaces, incorporating 5,000 new homes and supporting 3,500 new jobs.
Major transport investment ranging from new and improved motorway junctions to upgrades of the local highways network, along with new public transport routes, further add to The Hub’s attractiveness.
Solihull’s town centre also presents a range of exciting commercial and residential development opportunities, with significant investment committed to further public realm and transport infrastructure enhancement.
With a track record of innovative housing delivery and ambitions to accelerate development across Council owned sites, UK Central Solihull offers a range of potential sites for innovative schemes in strategic locations, linked to our economic growth agenda.
Our ambition is underpinned by a commitment to sustainable development, adding value to commercial opportunities and showcasing the region’s strength in low carbon expertise as a national exemplar of future placemaking.
