Mipim latest: Typhoo Wharf is set to become a hub for businesses in the digital, tech and creative industries
A former Typhoo tea factory in Birmingham is set to be turned into a tech and creative hub as part of a £200m redevelopment project.
Located opposite the planned Curzon Street HS2 railway station and developed by Stoford Developments, Typhoo Wharf is set to become a hub for businesses in the digital, tech and creative industries, as well as supporting start-ups through incubator schemes.
More than 1,000,000ft² is expected to be developed to include a mixture of Grade A office space, SME business incubator space, bars and restaurants, artist studios and homes, in the Digbeth area of the city.
The scheme is one of several being promoted by the city at this week’s Mipim conference in Cannes.
Jon Andrews, director at Stoford, said: “This is a very ambitious scheme that promises to set the tone for transformation of Digbeth and we are delighted to have been selected to play a central role in delivering this important development programme.
“We will be working closely with Gooch Estate, Birmingham City Council and Curzon Regeneration Company, Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP, Savills and other local stakeholders to ensure the vision for this ambitious scheme can be delivered with a collaborative approach,” he added.
