What Makes Living at Glasswater Locks So Special?
Vibrant Cultural Epicentre Worth £31.9 Billion
Birmingham, the UK's second biggest city, is considered a young and vibrant cultural epicentre with a booming £31.9 billion economy, and an increasing young population. It is one of the UK’s fastest growing business hubs with seven characterful quarters. Each known for its unique offering, such as jewellery makers, universities and conference venues.
Local Universities Global Recognition
Birmingham is also home to 5 universities that are of exceptional standard and known globally for attracting international students seeking the very best in vocational and academic learning. Four of these five universities are situated within five miles of Glasswater Locks.
Thriving for Business
Birmingham is one of the UK’s fastest growing business hubs with three key areas in the city centre Colmore Row, Paradise and Brindley Place.

Also 49% of students studying in Birmingham chose to remain in the city post-graduation to begin their careers.
A City Connected
Known as the heart of England, Birmingham’s central location has always maintained strong country-wide connections, however the introduction of HS2 will elevate the city’s transport links to new levels. Curzon Street will be the fourth mainline station in the city. The high-speed service it provides will almost halve the journey time to London and significantly reduce travel times to the UK’s other major destinations.
A Rich Sporting Heritage
Birmingham has a history of hosting sporting events that command an international audience. As host of the Commonwealth Games, the city was selected for its ambitious and innovative vision to engage and bring benefit to the local community.
The celebrated regeneration of Birmingham’s Bullring Shopping Centre in 1999, and the unveiling of the landmark Selfridges building in 2003, put the city firmly on the map for shoppers and day-trippers. This city centre transformation set the scene for globally-recognised names like Harvey Nichols to establish a local presence, making Birmingham one of the top three retail destinations in the UK. The full spectrum of brands is now on offer from high end to high street, including Gucci, Dior, through to John Lewis and Zara.
The Big City Plan
The Big City Plan is the most ambitious, far-reaching development project ever undertaken in the UK. The aim is to create a world-class city centre by planning for the next 20 years of transformation.
