Conversion plan for former Birmingham Bank

birmingham municpalbankPlans have been published by Birmingham University for the conversion of a Grade II-listed former bank building.

The building in Broad Street, Birmingham would become a business engagement hub, performance and exhibition space plus a museum.

The former bank building at 301 Broad Street lies opposite Centenary Square and the Library of Birmingham and is surrounded by the landmark Arena Central development in central Birmingham.

The bank was initially founded in 1916 to raise money for World War I. It subsequently became the first and only municipal bank in the country.

Birmingham University is planning to transform the property into a "gateway" for the institutions in the city centre. As well as being community hub and a performance space, it will also provide a place for the University of Birmingham to engage with the city's corporates and tech partners.

Birmingham City Council purchased the empty building in 2006 to help kick start the redevelopment of the former ATV television studios as Arena Central. The building has hosted exhibitions in the past. It has also been used as a set for film and television dramas.

City Councillors will be discussing the University of Birmingham plan later this month.
