BIRMINGHAM - LOCATION OF THE FUTURE

Site selectors, who specialise in advising on where businesses should be located, identify Birmingham as a 'location of the future' due to the quality of it's investment offer:-

Quote:
FDI OUTLOOK
From Site Selection magazine, July 2015

by PATTY RASMUSSEN

“A large population with a burgeoning middle class.” “Political and economic stability.” “An industrious, well-educated workforce that’s the envy of the region.” “Willingness to invest in quality infrastructure.” Those are among the attributes identified by Site Selection’s recent Locations of the Future survey respondents when asked why they favored one location over another in the world regions provided.

The survey asked site selectors with expertise in a variety of industries to tell us where they believed new sector clusters would locate five to 10 years down the road, and why they would likely emerge there. We asked the respondents to identify their top three areas of expertise. Next, we asked the respondents to identify — not rank — the locations within six regions they believed would be home to new clusters in those sectors in the next five to 10 years, based on their knowledge of the sectors. We also asked them to briefly explain what made the location appealing.

THE MAILBOX

The upmarket mixed use complex The Mailbox in Birmingham city centre is undergoing a £50m revamp currently. In addition to 50,000 sq ft of new office space, a cinema and new retail units, there will be an enlarged 45,000 sq ft Harvey Nichols store, which is due to re-open on July 31st.

Quote:
Harvey Nichols Birmingham reveals opening date

Stylistas! Stand by your (shopping) bags. Harvey Nichols Birmingham is opening on Friday, July 31.

The cutting edge store is arriving fashionably late in the month, launching on the final Friday.

The new concept shop is being hailed as a real trailblazer and will be the blueprint for future Harvey Nichols stores to follow.

Stacey Cartwright, the group chief executive officer of Harvey Nichols, said: “We are incredibly excited to announce our launch date of Friday, July 31,

“This is our first design concept store and we couldn’t have chosen a more exciting and innovative city to introduce this pioneering new retail experience.”

Set in the heart of the new look Mailbox, which is in the final stages of its £50 million transformation, the 45,000 square foot store was designed in collaboration with retail specialists Virgile + Partners.

The results have been described as “ground breaking”.

The Birmingham branch will “transform the retail environment” through its integration of digital technology, including mobile payment, a new loyalty app and state-of-the-art 360-degree mirrors which capture footage of shoppers which can even be shared on social media.

The vastly increased floor space means there will be plenty of room to showcase more than 200 of the world’s most desirable brands across womenswear, menswear, beauty, food and wine.

Many of the items will only be available in Harvey Nichols Birmingham while others are from internationally famous labels that weren’t previously available in the city.

The workforce at Harvey Nichols Birmingham has trebled to 200. In hospitality alone, the team is rising from three to more than 40.

There is a tie-up with Michelin-starred Birmingham chef Glynn Purnell in its restaurant.

A large food market will be complete with a chocolate wall and wine area.

The store also has its own bar, which will be open until 12.30am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Beauty rooms will offer enhancing and relaxing treatments with a cut and blow dry bar and a spa that will do everything from facials to botox to fat-freezing.

It will even have a secret entrance for VIPs or people wanting to arrive or leave discreetly when booked for more invasive treatments.

The rest of the Mailbox will be opening in phases from July culminating in a celebration event in September - the same month Grand Central and John Lewis will be opening.

POST & MAIL

Phase two of the Post & Mail development has been given planning permission. This will include 245,630 sq. ft. of grade A office space and 115 flats, plus 10 penthouse apartments.



Quote:
Post & Mail

Post & Mail is a new mixed-use building situated within the Colmore Business District, central Birmingham. It is located on part of a site previously occupied by John H. Madin and Partners’ Post & Mail complex, completed in 1964.

The development is being delivered in two phases. The first phase, which was completed in 2015, entailed the insertion of six new floor levels into the existing basement volume to create a 760 space car park. It also included the construction of a new two storey building above ground to accommodate a retail arcade, restaurant and retail units, car park access, plant rooms and service areas. Phase 2 of the development will deliver seven floors of Grade A office accommodation, five levels of residential apartments arranged around a landscaped courtyard space, and two levels of large duplex penthouses, along with internal fit-out works to parts of the ground, mezzanine and first floor levels.

The two storey element completed under Phase 1 provides a strong base to the building. It comprises of two distinct parts: a ‘solid’ granite faced plinth at ground floor level and a ‘transparent’ first floor storey expressed in virtually continuous glazing. The office floors above feature a high quality unitised system of curtain-walling and anodised aluminium panels set out to a modular grid. The alternating pattern of black, grey and silver panels is an allusion to the printmaking history of the site. The residential facades are set back from the building line on all sides, continue this architectural language of modular glazing and anodised aluminium panels. Forming a distinct top to the building, the penthouse apartments feature continuous glazing and strong vertical fin elements. These fins act as shading devices, and also shroud the external terraces and roof gardens
