Once Birmingham’s industrial quarter, Digbeth’s factory buildings have been transformed in recent years. Today, the area is a hub of culture and creative enterprise with galleries, nightclubs, pubs and restaurants waiting to be discovered. No trip to Birmingham would be complete without exploring Digbeth.
Digbeth is evolving from its industrial roots, from the heart of Birmingham’s industrial revolution to a modern thriving creative community.
Oval Real Estate, the owners of the Custard Factory and other buildings in Digbeth, have been developing long term plans for the estate.
We shared our draft plans in November 2019 and we are very grateful to those of you who took the time to speak with us and provide us with feedback as part of the public consultation. Since then we have been working closely with our architects and technical teams to further develop our plans, taking consultation responses into account.
A planning application has been submitted to Birmingham City Council which would allow Oval to invest in the area over the next 10 – 15 years.
