Birmingham’s economy currently stands in excess of £120 Billion, and is growing at a higher rate than any other city in the UK. It’s the UK’s second city after the Capital, an accolade supported by Birmingham’s key performance statistics. Birmingham has been voted the best regional city in the UK to live, with the cost of living approximately 60% lower than London. Many corporates have recognised the value and already relocated to Birmingham. The property market is growing at an exponential rate, fuelled by the influx of major corporations and the growing deficit in housing supply. Birmingham simply does not have enough residences to meet the occupier demand.
Under construction across the length and breadth of the UK, with a scheduled completion in 2026, the High-Speed Rail Network (HS2) will play a huge part in the future of Birmingham as a hotspot for investment. When the network is completed, journey times between Birmingham and London will be cut by as much as 40%. This reduction in commuting times between these two major cities, puts Swan Courtyard in a prime location for commuters wanting the affordability of Birmingham but the career opportunities of London.
Birmingham is strategically located for motorway travel with the M5, M6, M40 and M42 all interconnecting in and around the city. Three main rail stations serve Birmingham, New Street, Snow Hill and Moor Street, together providing a comprehensive network linking long distance destinations across the UK. A central location at the heart of the UK has been a key factor in Birmingham’s success and appeal for investment and development. Located in between some of the UK’s biggest cities such as Manchester and London means Birmingham has a wealth of excellent transport links both nationally and internationally.
Birmingham’s framework of six economic growth zones will attract a £1.5Billion investment programme generating some 1.8 Million square metres of new floor space and create around 50,000 new jobs. By 2031, Birmingham will have undergone a transformational change that will see substantial economic growth furthering its dynamic presence on the international stage. The six economic zones provide the stimulus for clustering economic activity within high quality business environments, each accelerating the delivery of growth to benifit the city.
Birmingham is home to five leading universities, and boasts over 75,000 full-time students, representing the UK’s largest centre of higher education outside of London. Two of Birminghams Universities, Birmingham University and Birmingham City University, rank among the top 100 in the QS World University Rankings. Birmingham enjoys the second highest retention rate of post-grads outside of London, currently standing at above 49%.
