Birmingham is ready to capitalise on the regeneration opportunities that HS2 will bring to the Curzon Street area

Birmingham is ready to capitalise on the regeneration and economic growth opportunities that HS2 will bring to the Curzon Street area.

Alongside the significant improvements in rail connectivity, HS2 will also spark a new wave of growth and development both around the new station and across the wider Midlands region. Unlocking this growth will require local action to create the environment for investment and delivery of new neighbourhoods and commercial schemes.

The Birmingham Curzon area forms part of the city’s Enterprise Zone (EZ), which is already helping deliver major new investment, including the £500m Paradise project. The regeneration potential will be maximised through a £724m programme that will integrate the new international rail terminus into the heart of the city centre.

More initiatives will support wider growth and regeneration of the area:

  • A station design competition to create a landmark building and world class arrival experience
  • Creation of a high quality setting for the station with public squares and spaces including: Paternoster Place - connecting into Digbeth by the West Coast Main Line; Curzon Promenade and Curzon Square - creating the station in a park and providing a setting for the original Curzon station building and Station Square and Moor Street Queensway - the first point of arrival which will also connect city centre office and retail areas with the station
