Paradise Transformation Underway


The first phase in the transformation of Paradise started in January 2015.

This involves the demolition of existing buildings to clear the site for construction, and new road layouts to improve and open up connectivity across the city for pedestrian and road users.

Paradise is recognised as perhaps the most important city centre development outside London and is one of the biggest development schemes in Birmingham for a generation.

Paradise will dramatically transform this area of the city centre into a vibrant, mixed use development of commercial, civic, leisure and hotel space.

It will provide major improvements to pedestrian access and greatly enhance the public streets and squares to reflect its prominent position amongst one of the UK’s finest collections of Victorian civic buildings, with the Town Hall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and Council House.

Phase 2 will start in May 2015 and last until November 2015

There will be no vehicle access from Parade/Sand Pits to Great Charles Street or the Paradise Gyratory throughout this phase.

New diversions will be put in place with advance signage in position prior to the start dates.

The A38 tunnels will be operating as normal during these works.
