Birmingham, U.K., Project “to Create 1,000 Jobs”
The Woodbourne Group, developer of the £360-million (US$500-million) Curzon Wharf project that would include Birmingham’s tallest building, says the development would create about 1,000 jobs, BBC News reported in March. The three towers, including two skyscrapers, are being built at Dartmouth Circus, the source said, adding that developers target making the scheme a world-first in carbon-neutral developments. The three towers, if approved, would be a short distance from the new Curzon Street HS2 railway station, and the current canal-side site at Dartmouth Circus of 1960s-era industrial units would be demolished.
No construction timeline was reported.
