Four great reasons for renting commercial property in Birmingham

27th August 2010
Birmingham is an industrial powerhouse in the West Midlands, and the most populous British city outside of London. One of the most important cities during the Industrial revolution, it has now become a leading commercial centre, and was recently voted the second-best place in the United Kingdom to locate a business. It has also been ranked the 55th most liveable city in the World in the last few years, making Birmingham a superb commercial location that provides an enjoyable backdrop to resident workers.

If you’re looking to relocate to Birmingham, here are four great reasons why you should go ahead:

Superior transport infrastructure
Birmingham has one of the best transport infrastructures in the country, perhaps second only to London. The city is circled by the M5 and M42, and Birmingham New Street Rail station – a major railway hub – provides frequent services to the South, including London, and beyond. Birmingham International Airport is the sixth busiest airport in the United Kingdom and regularly runs scheduled flights to America and the Middle East.

Strategic location

Birmingham’s location in the West Midlands is very central, and offers companies a strategic location in the middle of the country. Having a business base in such a useful area can really help companies with regard to day-to-day operations. Any deliveries can be made more easily and within a shorter time frame, and clients will naturally find it easier to get to Birmingham for important meetings than if you were situated further north or south.

Diverse geography & offerings
Birmingham is an industrial powerhouse but it is actually a very nice city to live and work in, with grassy areas at regular intervals and a number of different architectural styles spread throughout the city. Leisure amenities are varied to cater for the diverse population; there’s really something for everyone to do there, which will make workers extremely happy and improve productivity.

Extensive regeneration plans
As such an important centre of commerce and industry Birmingham frequently benefits from regeneration plans that develop its infrastructure and amenities, benefiting companies operating in the area. Birmingham New Street Rail station is about to undergo a £500m development programme that’ll open up access and improve its services, which will allow busy executives to get to where they need to be even quicker.
