West Midlands market: Birmingham and Wolverhampton schemes

Birmingham Curzon Street railway station

Twenty schemes worth a total of £10bn set to raise the profile of the region.

That is the perception locally and the motivation behind a major drive to power up the region’s ability to attract inward investment, real estate development and occupiers seeking an affordable alternative to London.

To pursue this mission, a 400-strong West Midlands delegation attended this year’s Mipim to showcase more than 20 major property development opportunities between Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Dudley and the Black Country, with a joint value of £10bn. PropertyWeek takes a look at what the region has to offer.

More than 40 events took place at Mipim to promote the area. Attendees included investors and developers, architects, agents and occupiers, as well as representatives of the ‘Midlands engine’, the West Midlands Combined Authority, Birmingham City Council, UK Central Solihull and Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council.
