Australian-based international property developer Lendlease has been appointed by the Birmingham City Council as its development partner for the 17-hectare Birmingham Smithfield site in Birmingham, UK. Lendlease and the city council will form a joint venture to manage the project.
The £1.5 billion ($2.59 billion) development of the urban quarters will include a new home for the city’s historical Bull Ring retail markets, a new family-friendly leisure and cultural area, a new public square, an integrated public transport system, as well as more than 2,000 homes with a public park and community facilities.

This urban redevelopment is part of the city’s “Big City Plan” launched in 2010, which sets out a 25-year growth vision for the city centre. The site being developed is adjacent to the Birmingham New Street train station, and will be a short walk to the upcoming High Speed 2 City Centre Terminus Station, which is expected to open in 2026.
