Accommodation in the CBD

Residential development in the CBD is a new phenomenon in the 21st Century.  New apartments are being built on the sites of old office developments and factory units, and the Rotunda, one of Birmingham's landmark buildings has recently been converted from offices to residential land use.  Many of these developments are aimed at attracting young, affluent people to the central area of the city.  This is part of the process of reurbanisation.
