The 560,000 square foot  scheme – which will deliver a complex the size of Solihull’s Touchwood development including shops, restaurants and cinema – was granted outline planning consent in 2012. The site, bordered by Upper Precinct, Greyfriars Road and Warwick Road, connects to Bull Yard, where it joins up to the new boulevard connection to the railway station. The new water park and health spa will also be located adjacent to City Centre South – providing a leisure and recreation anchor alongside the new shops and restaurants planned for the site.
