Birmingham’s booming in the Built Environment!
There certainly isn’t any shortage of jobs within the Built Environment in Birmingham City Centre! According to Birmingham Post there are ‘over 5,000 homes set to be built’ in and around the city centre, including; Digbeth, Broad Street and the Jewellery quarter.
One of our clients is set to develop the former Matthew Boulton College Site, with plans for new family town houses to be built, the space also includes room for parking which is hard to come by with city centre properties.
The abundance of new housing developments is most likely in preparation for HS2. The Department for Transport says the project will cut Birmingham-London journey times from 1hr 21min to 49min.
When I used to work in Birmingham City Centre it took me nearly an hour to get home in rush hour traffic and I only lived 8 miles away! To think you could be arriving in London in less time, opens up new possibilities and makes the prospect of working in London and commuting everyday more appealing.
Even though HS2 isn’t set to be finished until 2026, property developers and residential developers are definitely jumping on hot land before others snap it up. Just remember the early bird catches the worm!
