Southern Gateway


The Southern Gateway occupies a strategic location adjoining the Bullring and City Core retail and business area. It is in close proximity to New Street Station, Moor Street Station and the proposed terminus Station for the High Speed rail line. The area is a major development opportunity to create a new destination delivering development with the highest sustainability credentials centred around a newly created public space – Moat Square. This is an opportunity to diversify Birmingham’s leisure, retail and cultural offer, including niche retail, improved markets, family entertainment, residential and space for creative industries.
