Arena Central overlooks Centenary Square, one of the city’s key public spaces and home to the Library of Birmingham.
Funding totalling £8 million has been secured for a comprehensive redesign and enhancement of the space, which is due to be completed in 2018.
Arena Central occupies a key strategic location, linking the city’s Westside to the Colmore Business District, the city’s traditional core, which is just 10 minutes’ walk away and home to a range of blue chip and professional services organisations.
Its position on 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.
