Site Location

Arena Central overlooks Centenary Square, one of the city’s key public spaces and home to the new Library of Birmingham, which will undergo an £8 million redesign and enhancement due to be completed by early 2018.

Arena Central links the city’s Westside to the Colmore Business District, the city’s traditional core, which is just 10 minutes’ walk away and is home to a range of blue chip and professional services organisations.

Its position on Broad Street also provides access to a number of the city’s key bus routes and the A38 which connects to the UK’s national motorway network. The site is situated adjacent to a future stop on the Midland Metro extension, due to be completed in early 2019.

The central location puts Birmingham’s three main railway stations – Moor Street, Snow Hill and New Street – within easy walking distance, with connections available to Birmingham Airport which offers direct flights to over 143 international destinations.

Many of Birmingham’s key retail and leisure amenities – such as the Bullring and Mailbox – are within a short walking radius of the site, as is the Grand Central development above New Street station, anchored by a 250,000 sq ft John Lewis department store.
