Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
Birmingham residents and businesses are invited to a public exhibition today and tomorrow (9th and 10th of September) to view the outline proposals for a new restaurant destination at Bullring.
The new development will be set around St Martin's Square and will create space for restaurants and public space.
The new scheme called Spiceal Street, draws on the areas' history. During the 1700s the original Spiceal Street, in the same location as the proposed development was well known for its hospitality, grocery and meat trade.
Designed by Chapman Taylor, the architecture for Spiceal Street includes a striking 'ribbon concept' curved roof linking the three new retail units, a feature green wall and a new water feature as part of the improved public realm. The scheme will also enhance pedestrian links from St Martin's Walk to St Martin's Square.
Representatives will be on hand to explain the proposed scheme at the public exhibition prior to the submission of a planning application later this autumn.
The exhibition will be on Central Street (St Martin's Walk) Bullring on:
Thursday 9 September from 10.00 - 19.00
Friday 10 September from 10.00 - 18.00
Hammerson was one of the original developers of Bullring which opened in 2003. Lawrence Hutchings is the Managing Director: "We have a proven track record in Birmingham with Bullring delivering an exceptional retail focus for the city. Spiceal Street will enhance Bullring's presence in the region and reinforces our long-term involvement and investment in Birmingham. We have a strong reputation for bringing new brands to the city and we are confident we can continue this at Spiceal Street."
"We look forward to sharing our proposals with local businesses and shoppers and we hope that people will take the time to come and see the proposals and also to share their views."
