Why invest in Birmingham?

birminghamGlobal investors are flocking to Birmingham to take advantage of its regeneration, redevelopment and job creation. Increasing demand for high quality, city centre accommodation, coupled with low residential stock, provides a sustainable investment opportunity with a low entry price.

Birmingham’s central location, transport links – particularly to London – and quality of life make it an ideal location to live and invest.

With an abundance of parks, nature reserves and beautifully restored canals, Birmingham is one of Britain’s greenest cities, and has one of the highest standards of living in the country. Combine this with a strong sense of heritage and a proud history, Birmingham has a lot to offer.

Investing in Birmingham means embracing all that the city has to offer. From dining out in one of the five Michelin starred restaurants, experiencing the finest concert hall acoustics outside Sydney, visiting one of its many theatres or shopping at Grand Central, The Mailbox, Bullring, John Lewis and Selfridges, the city’s attractions are as vibrant and diverse as the people that call Birmingham home.


Birmingham is growing. Demand for city centre living is high and will show no signs of slowing down once HS2 has launched. Attracting more inward investment than any other UK region and boasting some of the most valued aspects of the capital, without the associated living costs, Birmingham is fast becoming the city to watch.

To facilitate growing interest in the city, Birmingham has planned to invest £900m in property around the Curzon Street Station area, and plans to build 4,000 houses to accommodate the expanding region. Local development is testament to the efforts to build on the success of Grand Central, The Mailbox refurb and the Big City Plan, which coincides with the launch of the planned HS2 line from Curzon Street in Digbeth. The recent growth and development of the city has attracted many young professionals to the area and as a result, the need for property investment has never been greater.

SevenCapital has made the first steps to addressing this need for accommodation with developments planned for the Jewellery Quarter, Professional Quarter, Digbeth and several city centre sites which will provide much needed buy-to-let opportunities during this exciting time for the UK’s second city.
