Yes, this project specifically will change the whole feel of the city centre, especially the eastern areas, and will make it feel like the World doesn't end at the Bullring and St. Martin's .... which it currently does!

HSBC UK TOPS OUT NEW HEAD OFFICE IN BIRMINGHAM
5th May 2017


HSBC UK’s new head office in Birmingham will be officially ‘topped out’ today (5 May), an important milestone in the bank’s creation of its new head office at the heart of the UK.

The 210,000 sq. ft. head office at Centenary Square is due to open in January 2018 and the topping out ceremony represents the completion of the physical frame of the 10 storey building. Work has now begun on interior installations including internal walls, lift machinery and plumbing.

HSBC UK is investing over £200 million in Birmingham and moving more than 1,000 head office roles to the city from London before 1 January 2019. More than half of these roles are now accounted for through a combination of people moving from London already, people moving this year, and new hires into Birmingham.

HSBC UK is taking a 250-year lease on the new head office, which will accommodate up to 2,500 people. In addition to the 1,000 head office roles moving from London, HSBC UK already employs more than 2,500 people in the city..........
