Millennim Point releases office space to capitalise on HS2

Suites of new offices have been released at Millennium Point as the Eastside building looks to capitalise on its proximity to Birmingham’s HS2 station.

It is the first time space has become available in the landmark building since 2015.

The offices, which range in size from 818 sq ft to nearly 2,500 sq ft, are being targeted at organisations with interests in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and those involved in the design and development of the new high speed rail station.

The space has become available following a reconfiguration of Millennium Point.

“We have developed office spaces to meet the needs of technology-focused organisations that might be supporting the development of HS2, whilst meeting Millennium Point’s aims and ambitions of supporting STEM,” said Judith Armstrong, chief executive of Millennium Point.

“The new accommodation is within a stone’s throw of the Curzon Street development – on the site of the oldest railway terminus in the world that is going to be home to the most advanced railway infrastructure in the world.

“HS2 also plans to redevelop the 350-acre site around the station to include shops, 2,000 homes and a hotel.”

Lambert Smith Hampton has been appointed to market the new offices – which follows the recent opening of conference and events venue, Connect, at Millennium Point, as part of a £1m investment programme into the building.

“This is top grade office space in Eastside, opposite the HS2 site and overlooking Birmingham’s new Conservatoire. There is adjacent car parking and the existing mainline railway stations are in close proximity. It’s a strong and fast improving location for business,” said Charlotte Fullard, senior surveyor at LSH Birmingham.

The letting of the office space is intended to support the development of STEM in the West Midlands region – with profits from Millennium Point’s commercial activities in the building being used to fund organisations, project and initiatives with interests in STEM. During the past four years, Millennium Point Trust – which owns the building – has donated more than £4m to support STEM initiatives.
