Birmingham is one of the fastest developing cities in the UK with substantial infrastructural developments in progress and a forecast growth of 14% within the next three years.
As recent as 2015, the ‘Second City’ was named the most investable city in the UK for a second year running above the likes of Milan, London and Paris in an annual survey of European investors’ intentions.
Global businesses such as HSBC, Deutsche Bank and PwC are choosing to relocate their headquarters to the city, bringing a large influx of jobs and workers from across the globe with a further need in property.
Birmingham’s recent growth and the global appeal is further highlighted by its winning bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
2026 will also see the completion of Project HS2, Europe’s largest infrastructure project worth around £56 billion. This ambitious project will see travel times between Birmingham and London slashed to under one hour, bringing increased accessibility to jobs in the capital and will make Birmingham an attractive living option for many.
