BIRMINGHAM ‘IN LINE FOR ASTON MARTIN FACILITY


Links: http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/...rtin-facility?
  • Birmingham has reportedly topped a list of potential sites for a new Aston Martin facility.

    According to The Sunday Times, the car maker is considering a plot in Minworth, Sutton Coldfield, to build its new 4x4 model, which was unveiled earlier this year.

    It is shortlisted alongside sites in Coventry, South Wales and Alabama in the US.

    A decision could be made by the end of the year and a facility in the Midlands is expected to be the most likely choice.

    The news comes a month after Aston Martin, which is headquartered in Gaydon, announced it could potentially cut hundreds of jobs from its 2,100-strong global workforce as part of a "rebalancing" process.

    Insider reported that workers' union Unite, which said 314 roles were at risk, was in talks with the manufacturer over the jobs threat.

Birmingham is the second popular destination in UK

We all know Birmingham is the Second City in UK, but should not only be the Second City, it should be the Second Capital.


Birmingham has been voted and ranked as the second best city in the UK as millions visit the Second City, overtaking Manchester

Sorry Manchester, Birmingham has taken your place

Birmingham came second as the second best and most visited city in UK outside London




Birmingham as an Iconic Modern new Station called New Street, one of the popular railway hubs and terminus outside London, with lots of trains running from the Capital to the Second City.

£750m boost for Greater Birmingham with enterprise zone expanded


Links: http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/busi...rise-10462360r
  • The regeneration of Birmingham city centre is set for a £750 million-plus boost after the Government rubber stamped the expansion of the enterprise zone .

    The devolution deal signed yesterday commits to funding the Curzon Street enterprise zone extension, which represents a huge step forward for developing the HS2 station and the wider regeneration area .

    The Post understands that agreement, secured after tough negotiations with Government, will be worth between £750 million and £1 billion worth of borrowing against future business rates.

Plot F, Arena Central
City Center

Height: 61m | Floors: 18 | Client/Architects: ACD / Holiday Express

Links: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...494504&page=55

  • The 210 Bedroom Holiday Inn Express and Leisure Club in Birmingham City Centre occupies a highly prominent, and technically challenging, site on the southern boundary of Arena Central.

    The form of the hotel is driven by a myriad of site constraints not least of which the complex sub-structure existing New Street Railway Tunnel, which passes under its south east corner, and the challenging sequence of surrounding site levels and access points.

    The visual appearance of the development is composed of elements derived from local and distant contextual features whilst at the same time hinting at the Site’s historic connection with the famous ATV studios and television presentation through the application of a light weight ‘pixelated’ façade.


  • Current status: Under Construction

Eastside Locks Masterplan

Height: Various | Floors: Various | Client/Architects: Goodman

Links: Official Website
  • Eastside Locks. Outline planning consent has been approved to create 650,000 sq ft of prime, Grade A office space in a thriving, mixed-use development unlike any other in the city. Eventually rising to 800,000 sq ft, the meticulously-considered masterplan will see the delivery of an urban development that's truly distinct from other higher density schemes in every conceivable way. Benefiting from being both water side and park side (and with a strong emphasis on vibrant public spaces) Eastside Locks will offer a cost-effective alternative to Birmingham's traditional central business district

  • Current status: Under Construction

Birmingham Grand Hotel
City Centre

Height: N/A | Floors: 7| Client/Architects: Hortons / BGS Architects

Links: Official Website
  • The Grand is one of Birmingham’s most iconic buildings occupying a prominent and imposing position on Colmore Row with views over St Philip’s Cathedral.

    Colmore Row is traditionally the city’s most prestigious address running from Victoria Square to Snow Hill station, within the Colmore Business District. In addition to the numerous high profile professional service office occupiers in the area, there is an abundance of quality retailers such as; Louis Vuitton, Jaegar, Clements and Church, Pret a Manger and Whitewall Galleries, as well as a variety of exceptional bars and restaurants.

    The Grade II* listed property was originally built by Issac Horton and is still owned by the Horton family today

  • Current status: Under Construction



Funding boost for the Grand Hotel:-

Quote:
£6million boost for The Grand Hotel

The Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership and Birmingham City Council have agreed to provide £6million of grant support towards the cost of interior works at The Grand Hotel, 1 Church Street, Birmingham.

The work to the hotel will complete the restoration of the Grade II* Grand block, following on from £14million of works undertaken by its owner, Hortons’ Estate Limited to date. This includes the restoration of the facades, installation of a new roof and remodeling of the Colmore Row shops and offices.

The first phase of the internal works will commence immediately, creating nine of the 170 new bedrooms, lift shafts and plant rooms and adding a new external terrace and kitchen block. The project will take a year to complete.

This will be followed by the fit-out of the hotel, including the restoration of the ornate Grosvenor Room and the grand staircase.

Hortons’ estimates the works will cost in excess of £25million and anticipates they will be completed in time for the hotel to open in 2018.

Tony Green, chief executive of Hortons’ Estate, said: “The works that we have undertaken to date have proved complex and expensive and have taken longer than we hoped to complete. However, we are delighted with the results and the public reaction to them.

“We have always been committed to bringing the whole building back into use, rather than simply restoring its fabric, but the hotel element has never been financially viable. The grant has enabled us to move forward and we are very grateful to both the LEP and Birmingham City Council for their support.”

Birmingham voted favourite UK regional city for business tourism events


Links: http://businessbirmingham.com/media-...source=Twitter
  • Birmingham is the UK’s most popular destination outside London for corporate conferences and events, according to the seventh annual British Meetings & Events Industry Survey (BMEIS).

    The business tourism survey, based on the buying tendencies of nearly 500 British event organisers from the corporate and not-for-profit sectors, revealed that Birmingham was the preferred choice outside the capital for the seventh consecutive year.

    Birmingham remains ahead of city rivals Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow as the most used regional destination for events. The 2015/16 survey also highlighted that access, location and value for money were the most important factors for industry professionals when choosing a location.

    In 2015, Meet Birmingham – the city’s official business tourism programme – attracted and supported more than 20 events from the region’s best performing business sectors, resulting in a £36 million economic boost. These included Automotive News Europe (9-10 June, Hilton Metropole) and the IBMS Biomedical Science Congress (28-30 September, International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham).

THE ROUNDHOUSE
Back from the brink: Bringing new life to the UK’s industrial heritage


Links: http://dcmsblog.uk/2015/11/back-from...rial-heritage/
  • This week, the Heritage Lottery Fund announced a £2.5million investment in Birmingham’s iconic-but-underused Roundhouse, a major industrial building at the heart of the city’s canal network. Built in the 1870s, the horseshoe-shaped Roundhouse was integral to industries which dominated the city for decades. Yet as Birmingham’s traditional industries declined, so did the Roundhouse. For the last decade the majority of the building has been vacant and unused.

    But now, thanks to HLF investment and an innovative project led by the Canal & River Trust and the National Trust, the building is set for a new lease of life that will revive the site and bring a much-needed economic boost to Birmingham. The renovated building will be home to a range of businesses which will create up to 20 new jobs, enabling more than 50,000 people to access the revitalised Roundhouse
