Surely you not know well Milan. Cathedral was at the exact center of the city. Urban areas go to expand at the north, toward the lakes. Porta Nuova is well integrated and is part of Milan's city center: just take into account Corso Como, one of the most frequented famous road/pedestrian area by young people, and celebrities/models during fashion weeks, with shops, pubs, and exclusive nightclubs. Or the nearest Brera Design District or Porta Venezia (one side of Golden Quadrangle Fashion District).

Frankfurt, looking towards Taunusanlage. The city's Central Park, lined by skyscrapers.

Image with New Henninger tower under construction in the foreground.
Right from the construction site is the visual model of the facade.

Unfortunately the airport commission has rejected Birmingham in favour of London airports however Birmingham itself has invested in the airport and a runway extension which will see it double in size to around 18m by 2020. It has a capacity of up to 30ish million.

Regarding financial institutions, Deutsche bank within the last 5 years have gone from to 30 employees to over 2000 and are opening a trading floor in the city. It's believed that Birmingham will attract more on the back of Deutsche bank.

Also the headquarters of Hs2 will be in Birmingham. It will be moved from London. Hs2 is expected to create 50000 jobs in the city.

We are seeing alot of interest within the city. Its the only region in the UK with a trade surplus to China. It contributes 9% to the UK economy. Attracts the most FDI outside the south east and is the only city in the UK which benefits from a city wide enterprise zone.

It's exciting times for the city and being the hub of Hs2 it's going to go through a massive boom over the next 15 years. Watch this space I guess.

Nice to see more and more lights in Imperia-Tower. Also first in Mercury-City (and even in Evolution).
