Birmingham is set for a £1.3bn boost thanks to a redevelopment scheme and a new HS2 terminus.
A regeneration company has been appointed to redevelop the area around Curzon Street, near Birmingham’s HS2 terminus.
The redevelopment is set to deliver 14,000 jobs and a boost of up to £1.3bn to the local economy
Birmingham has been chosen as the location for the HS2 Construction HQ, which will create 1,500 jobs.
Additionally, a £30m fund has been approved by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership to kick-start development activity.
The news comes after £130m was secured earlier this month from a Local Growth Fund for HS2 related projects. Work has begun on a project to extend Midland Metro to HS2 Curzon St station.
CN is awaiting comment from Marketing Birmingham on how this redevelopment will affect events.
