A CREATIVE COMMUNITY AROUND BBC BIRMINGHAM'S NEW HQ IN THE HEART OF DIGBETH
Stoford is bringing forward plans to create state-of-the-art new headquarters for BBC Birmingham at the historic Typhoo Tea Factory in the heart of Digbeth’s creative quarter. The project will reinvigorate the historic Typhoo Tea Factory building and immediate surrounding area, delivering 84,001 square feet of new commercial premises for BBC Birmingham and 2884 sq ft of new leisure space.
The project will also reinvigorate the wider Typhoo Wharf site, with plans for over 800,000 square feet of new residential and commercial schemes, new public spaces and connections to local transport hubs and surrounding areas.
The plans for a new BBC Birmingham headquarters and reinvigorated Typhoo Wharf will be part of the wider rebirth of Digbeth while also contributing to Birmingham’s transformation into a greener, healthier, walkable, cyclable and even more attractive city.
This website provides you with the details of our proposals and invites you to share your feedback on the plans.
