Located in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, Golden Square is a major part of Birmingham City Council’s Big City Plan Initiative Programme, which is transforming the city centre.
The £1.6 million development will be made up of three distinct areas – the plaza, the orchard and the promenade – creating a high quality public square and events space, supported by a showcase retail unit and information facilities.
The square will complement the St Paul’s Square area, attract new visitors to the Jewellery Quarter, improve connectivity across the city centre and encouraging existing pedestrian flows into the area around the Big Peg and the Chamberlain Clock.
The project is managed by Us with consultants from Turner and Townsend and Capita. Balfour Beatty has been appointed as general contractor. Significant support has been received from the owner and facility manager of the Big Peg and the offices of the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District.
The scheme is funded by Us, the European Regional Development Fund and Section 106 Planning Gain monies. Work commenced on site in February 2014 and completion is expected mid-October 2014, with a launch event taking place in December 2014.
More information about Golden Square, is available on the Big City Plan Website.
