Massive regeneration of old 17-acre factory site coming to Birmingham, England

Planning chiefs are expected to approve major regeneration proposals for the north of Birmingham, England. The famous IMI factory used to occupy the 17 acre site.

Coleshill-based IM Properties lodged plans earlier this year to build on 17 acres of land at The Hub, in Nobel Way near Witton train station, where it is hoping to create a replacement for the city centre Wholesale Markets.

IM Properties wants to build a huge wholesale market building at The Hub covering 224,500 sq ft, or 5.6 acres, along with sprinkler tents, a pump house and a 450-space car park.

IM has previously said the development would result in multi-million-pound investment and save up to 620 local jobs while the wider regeneration of The Hub is expected to employ around 2,100 people on 1.6m sq ft of employment space.
