Birmingham City Council has revealed details of the £500m Birmingham Smithfield redevelopment project.

Spanning 14 hectares, the development will include over 300,000 sq m of commercial floor space, as well as 2,000 new homes in a mix of two-, three- and four-bed apartments.

The project will also feature new squares, parks and gardens, retail markets, leisure facilities, cafes, independent shops, restaurants and hotels, buildings for cultural events, and pedestrian boulevards. It is expected to create 3,000 jobs in the region.

Birmingham City Council chief executive Mark Rogers said: “Birmingham Smithfield will have a transformational impact that capitalises on the area’s unique heritage and focus for markets.

“It will radically enhance the city’s retail, visitor and residential offer, as well as unlocking the growth potential of a much wider area.”
