LONGBRIDGE is set to benefit from the biggest out-of-town office development in a decade after plans for the next phase of its regeneration were unveiled.

Developers St. Modwen have submitted plans to build a 48,000 sq ft Grade-A office development in Longbridge, believed to be the largest new out-of-town office development in Birmingham in a decade.

Located adjacent to Bournville College and the A38 Bristol Road, Two Park Square marks the next phase of St. Modwen’s £1 billion regeneration of Longbridge.

The proposal outlines a four-storey HQ-style building overlooking Austin Park plus three acres of green space in Longbridge Town Centre.

Two Park Square is expected to create a further 450 jobs in the town once fully occupied.

It will boast secure car parking, cycle storage, state-of-the-art shower facilities and a roof terrace overlooking the nearby parkland and town centre.

As part of wider public realm improvements, a new cycle route will be introduced through Austin Park in 2020, which will connect the town centre with its neighbouring communities such as Rubery, Rednal and Northfield.

Robert Flavell, Head of Major Projects for the Midlands and North, said: “Longbridge is fast becoming a hub for innovative living and working.

"Our proposed design reflects a campus style that sits at the very heart of the town and would make an ideal headquarters for a business looking to relocate to a suburban setting.

“We’re currently at full occupancy for commercial space in Longbridge so this development presents a unique opportunity for a business to take advantage of new-age office space that’s modern and ideally located.

“Longbridge is already a brilliant place to do business and we’re committed to diversifying its offer and truly unlocking its potential for the next phase.”
