  • Why live in Westside / Mailbox

    Once named the ‘Convention Quarter’, this fast changing part of Birmingham’s city centre has adopted a new name and look; Westside. Full of tall buildings, shopping, nightlife and entertainment activities, Westside has been transformed in recent decades and is now the city’s primary business and leisure destination, making the perfect place to work, live or play.

    At the top end of Broad Street, Centenary Square provides a direct and convenient pedestrian route to the City Core. The square is the site of the International Convention Centre, the REP theatre, Baskerville House, and the new Library of Birmingham, as well as being a significant visitor attraction itself, and hosting many outdoor events including the Christmas ice skating ring and Birmingham Wheel.

    Make sure you’re a part of Birmingham’s Westside Story!

  • What’s been happening lately

    There’s continuous funding into Westside. The most recent £188 million investment is the recently opened Birmingham Library. It has a rooftop garden, and houses over 400,000 books.

    Paradise Circus is taking on a whole new look. It is to be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use development of commercial, civic, retail, leisure and hotel space. The redevelopment will provide major improvements to pedestrian access and greatly enhanced public realm, befitting this exemplary historic setting.

    With the next plan for the area being the transformation of Ladywood into a much improved livable family neighbourhood, Westside has got lots to look forward to.


  • Attractions

    Westside has something for everyone:

    The Mailbox is Birmingham’s most stylish shopping, lifestyle and restaurant destination. Boasting stores like Harvey Nichols, you won’t be disappointed. Originally the Royal Mail sorting office, and keeping the original look, it’s hard to miss.

    The Cube, situated just behind the Mailbox, is home to Marco Pierre White’s restaurant and the Club & Spa, as well as 135 apartments. There’s always a new ‘happening’ bar opening either here or in the Mailbox.

    And not to miss out the iconic Broad Street. One of Birmingham’s most famous streets, it has its own Walk of Fame, numerous bars and restaurants and provides easy access in and out of the City Core.
