The Typhoo Tea Factory building will be partially demolished to provide 84,001 square feet of commercial space and parking for the BBC Birmingham headquarters. The original Bordesley Street façade will be preserved, and all external façades will include materials that complement the existing factory’s palette and character of the surrounding area, respecting its development throughout the 20th century.
The project will also reinvigorate the wider Typhoo Wharf site, with plans for over 800,000 square feet of new residential and commercial schemes, new public spaces and connections to local transport hubs and surrounding areas.
The plans for a new BBC Birmingham headquarters and reinvigorated Typhoo Wharf will be part of the wider rebirth of Digbeth while also contributing to Birmingham’s transformation into a greener, healthier, walkable, cyclable and even more attractive city.
