Goods Station, Suffolk Street Queensway, Birmingham - Placemaking with Community

Vita Group has launched one of a series of upcoming consultations on its masterplan for Goods Station on the former Axis site.

The developer has said it wants to respect the site’s heritage as a live-work destination and create a sustainable residential-led, mixed-use urban neighbourhood​.

Most recently home to the Axis Building, and before that, the beating heart of commerce and trade at Birmingham Central Goods Station, the gateway site spans just over 4 acres next to the Mailbox.

The vision will see “Goods Station build on the city’s rich industrial history while embracing its spirit and connectedness, combining a new community and a destination: a dynamic hub where people can live, work, socialise and thrive", says Vita.

With striking new buildings set around enhanced pedestrianised links, Goods Yard will feature a good range of apartment sizes and tenures, further complemented by a green public square at its heart, providing a unique, green space with public art, seating, and retail and commercial spaces.

Amenities will foster a sense of community by encouraging social interaction and wellbeing, from communal spaces and roof terraces to fitness facilities and co-working spaces.

Aligning with Birmingham City Council’s recently launched ‘Our Future City – the Draft Central Birmingham Framework 2040’, the site falls within the Western Gateway, one of three Growth Zones, which states:

"Ambitious proposals will bring together several major redevelopment opportunities to transform under-utilised spaces and buildings; this will deliver high-density residential and commercial development connected by new streets and squares and a reactivated canal frontage between Gas Street Basin and Mailbox."

The first phase of consultations can be viewed here (, lasting until August 8.
