Birmingham

Global leverage, local implementation

Birmingham is currently experiencing an unprecedented era of change, with schemes such as HS2 which will transform the city’s economy and deliver new jobs, infrastructure and homes. From our Birmingham office, Cushman & Wakefield can help you respond to the growing opportunities being created in the West Midlands and surrounding centres.

The UK’s central city

Birmingham's working age population has seen a 14% increase from 2000, reaching 2 million in 2020. 

Birmingham also boasts a young population, with 22% of the population aged below 16, versus 18% at the UK level, and 34% aged below 25, compared to 27% of the UK population. With the necessary supporting infrastructure in place, this youthful demographic could help contribute to strong growth in the city in years to come, supporting a vibrant economy and cultural scene in the city.

The city centre is a major economic hub for the West Midlands region and the wider UK, accommodating over 150,000 jobs and attracting more than £2 billion in shopping expenditure each year. Links to other local centres and regions, such as London, help to increase footfall and the appeal of the city centre.

The latest local authority level GDP data shows that Birmingham’s economic output totalled £29.6 billion in 2021, making it the UK’s largest city in fiscal terms outside of London.

Understand how global megatrends will drive change at the local level and what actions investors, developers, occupiers, and local authorities need to take to maximise the success of Birmingham.
