Eastside Story: The Changing Face of Eastside
June 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Eastside Quarter of Birmingham has seen an incredible transformation since the early 2000s. A raft of development schemes, including the construction of Millennium Point, the creation of Eastside City Park and the development of a new university campus, have combined to truly transform Eastside from an area that was constrained by the city’s infamous ‘concrete collar’ to a flourishing urban district. The regeneration of Eastside is far from over, however. Critical developments, such as Eastside Locks, continue to come forward, whilst the much-anticipated arrival of HS2 in Birmingham will see the construction of a new railway station in heart of the quarter.
To reflect on what has been achieved so far, and to look ahead to what is yet to come, the BPS Birmingham Infrastructure Committee and the Urban Land Institute Young Leaders committee are delighted to bring you Eastside Story, a fantastic event that will give you the opportunity to hear from a high quality panel of speakers who will each have their own perspective on the way Eastside continues to change. You will also have the opportunity to ask your own questions of the panel.
