Occupying a prominent position at the heart of Birmingham’s city centre, the 9.2 acre Arena Central site fronts Broad Street and lies adjacent to Centenary Square and the Library of Birmingham.
With a masterplan for 2.3 million sq ft of mixed-use development set within a brand new, landscaped public realm resembling an urban meadow, Arena Central represents a highly deliverable, highly desirable location for work, leisure and retail.
A joint venture between Miller Developments and Pro Vinci Asset Management, Arena Central is at the heart of Birmingham’s City Centre Enterprise Zone, enabling it to benefit from simplified planning and reduced business rates as well as forming a significant part of the city’s vision for regeneration, as laid out in the Big City Plan.
Arena Central’s public realm is a vital ingredient in securing the delivery of a truly 21st Century mixed-use development.
Created by internationally-renowned multidisciplinary design practice, Gillespies, the public realm uses materials sympathetic to the established location – ensuring that Arena Central forms seamlessly into its surrounding environment – but breaks from convention with the inclusion of over 50 per cent soft landscaping.
Designed to echo statement urban spaces such as New York’s High Line and the Promenade Plantee in Paris, it features a distinctive pedestrian ‘spine’ that runs through the site, connecting the commercial and retail zones.
It allows for a gradual transition from high quality granite paving towards softer interspersed greenery and a wild meadow, complemented by a flowing water channel travelling from the north to the south side.
To ensure that this environment is maintained to the highest possible quality for occupiers at Arena Central, their staff and customers, Colliers International has been appointed as managing agent.
Arena Central overlooks one of the city’s key public spaces, Centenary Square.
Its ornate design and stunning architecture provide the perfect blend between traditional and contemporary, with the new Library of Birmingham opening onto the square.
Funding totalling £8 million has been secured for a comprehensive redesign and enhancement of the space, due to be completed by early 2018. Arena Central occupies a key strategic location, linking the city’s Westside to the existing city core and is situated adjacent to the Midland Metro extension, due to be completed in early 2019.
Its location on Broad Street also provides access to a number of the city’s key bus routes and the A38 – which links to the UK’s national motorway network. New Street Station is just a few minutes’ walk from the site, providing mainline rail links to destinations throughout the UK, including Birmingham Airport, which offers direct connections to over 143 international destinations.
