Martineau Galleries is said to represent the most strategic regeneration scheme to come forward within Birmingham’s inner city core, delivering:
Hammerson said the vibrant new neighbourhood will also provide a public realm, including a central square, boulevard and new residential streets, which will be accessible and sustainable. These spaces will be available for community and cultural events, and leisure activities such as pop-up bars, food trucks and performances from local groups.
Robin Dobson, UK Director of Development and Project Management at Hammerson said, “We are pleased to confirm that our mixed-use masterplan for Martineau Galleries has been given a resolution to grant by Birmingham City Council. Hammerson has a strong track record in mixed-use placemaking and in delivering for Birmingham, having transformed the city centre with the opening of the iconic Bullring in 2003.
“Our plans for Martineau Galleries represent a step-change in our strategy, moving beyond pure retail, as we continue to deliver vibrant, continually evolving spaces, in and around thriving cities.”
