ABOUT CURZON WHARF
Pick any of the countless collisions of creativity that created the fabric of Birmingham, the texture and the identity of this magnificent metropolis, and there was always a time when daily life didn’t include them. The Rotunda was once just a plan, sketched with a draughtsman’s pencil. There was a time when the smallest bit of the library was at the bottom, not at the top. But remember this moment, this now, this before, as Curzon Wharf sets to change the city. This isn’t just a development, it’s a manifesto.
The proposed development at Curzon Wharf will be in line with the vision of the Big City framework, the objectives of Birmingham City Council’s Sustainable Community Strategy and the newly launched Our Future City Plan: Central Birmingham 2040. The masterplan has also been prepared within the context of the adopted Birmingham Development Plan (2017) which sets out a spatial vision and strategy to enable sustainable growth in the city up to 2031.
Woodbourne Group developed its proposals with Birmingham City Council and is now pleased to present the result of an iterative process in this vision document.
The area surrounding Curzon Wharf is undergoing huge transformation with a number of masterplans set to shape the character of the area over the coming generation. The Curzon Wharf masterplan is not only mindful in responding to this changing character, but proactive. Other benefits including but are not limited to:
