Project at a glance
As at 30 Jun 2022. Estimated project value, details and completion date reported in Lendlease Full Year Results, 30 June 2022. Figures in AUD.
Located in the heart of Birmingham, Smithfield will provide a new home for the city’s historic Bull Ring markets, outstanding new leisure and cultural spaces, including a festival square and landscaped park, integrated public transport, and over 3,000 new homes alongside community facilities.
Lendlease are working collaboratively with the local community through consultation and with Birmingham City Council to ensure the transformation of the site is sustainable and delivers the facilities and features that matter most to the local communities.
The site will be an international destination, created and shaped by local people – building upon a rich diversity in the city and providing a place for Birmingham’s communities to come together and share experiences and new ideas.
Smithfield is an area in Birmingham city centre which includes the former wholesale markets, plus the current Indoor, Open and Rag markets as well as some surrounding land and buildings. It is key to unlocking the potential and growth of the city and for the long-term economic and social prosperity for the region. The project is intended to maximise opportunities for Birmingham residents to experience good work opportunities, with potential for up to 8,000 new jobs through-out the development phase and in operation.
The new market at Smithfield will celebrate Birmingham and be an iconic new centrepiece for the city centre. We will build on it’s history and support the area to keep its role at the heart of Birmingham’s economy. The Smithfield project aims to provide all retail and office space built to BREEAM sustainability standard.
The project will provide the community with a new public square with space for public art activations.
The regeneration of the site will see a new public park and different active play areas for children.
Over 8,000 new jobs will be created over the life of this project and into the future.
