Latest information about Digbeth

Digbeth is undergoing revitalisation on a huge scale, with investment flooding into the region.

Digbeth and the wider locale are currently being regenerated under the Smithfield Masterplan, dubbed a “once in a generation opportunity” to boost Digbeth’s prominence on a global scale. It is a true expression of faith in Digbeth and is careful to accentuate the region’s unique history and character. With £1.9 billion being funneled into the region, the anticipated growth is staggering, with an estimated 8,000 jobs being created from the masterplan, as well as 3,000 homes. The masterplan is an ode to Birmingham’s standing as a market city since 1166 and will pay tribute to these roots by creating a new Market Square at the heart of the scheme. There will also be a large festival square to celebrate Digbeth’s status as the ‘Creative Quarter’, and a pedestrian boulevard adorned with lush greenery to contribute to the masterplan’s sustainability pledge.

The pending Curzon Street HS2 line, which is due for completion in 2026, will further drive business into Birmingham and solidify the city – specifically Digbeth – as the heart of national rail travel and a hub of connectivity. Beyond being a means of linking Birmingham to the rest of the country, HS2 will bring additional opportunities to Digbeth: Station Square and Curzon Square will offer communal spaces for Digbeth’s visitors and residents alike and will allow people to appreciate the Grade I listed Curzon Street building from which the station was inspired. Paternoster Place will also provide direct pedestrian routes into Digbeth’s Enterprise Zones, linking Eastside more firmly to the rest of Birmingham.

For those hoping to travel locally rather than nationally, the West Midlands Metro extension will allow easy, sustainable transportation between Digbeth and the West Midlands. With new stops being added to Digbeth High Street, and additional stops at the aforementioned Curzon Street station, there is no doubt that Digbeth will be one of the most connected and accessible districts in the entire country.
