Lendlease submits £1.9bn Smithfield Birmingham plans

CGI of Festival Square, as proposed for Birmingham city centre

The city centre Smithfield 17ha site, which played a central role in the 2022 Commonwealth Games, is set to become a new home for Birmingham’s Bull Ring markets.

The plans include a new market square, housing, offices and the creation of Festival Square, for outdoor events.

If approved, 600 homes will be built as part of the first phase of work – with a total of 3,000 homes planned for the whole site over the years.

A decision on the planning submission is expected in early 2023. If approved, construction on site should begin before the end of the year.

Alongside masterplanners Prior & Partners and David Kohn Architects, who are designing the new market, Lendlease’s design team includes dRMM, Intervention Architecture, Haworth Tompkins Architects, Minesh Patel Architects and RCKa with James Corner Field Operations designing the public realm and landscape.

Lendlease project lead Colin Murphy said: “Throughout 2022 we’ve been part of a city-wide conversation with people who live and work in Birmingham, inviting comment on our plans from all corners of the city including those who are at the heart of today’s Bull Ring Markets. And the submission of our planning application is a pivotal moment for a £1.9bn development that will provide thousands of new jobs and homes.

“This really is an exceptional opportunity to create and celebrate the next chapter in Birmingham’s transformation as an international city. Smithfield will provide the opportunity to create a destination market experience to rival Europe’s best; as well as an international office hub with access to outstanding transport links.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
