    Default Birmingham's Canary Wharf

    It also includes the transformation of the A38, to create a new urban boulevard connecting the neighbouring Jewellery and Gun Quarters, and the creation of a new urban neighbourhood in the Steelhouse Lane area.

    It's already the biggest Financial Area in the UK outside of London, Deutsch Bank are re-locating about half a mile to Brindley Place very soon and their are rumours that HSBC are the mystery buyer looking for nearly 350,000 sq ft of office space (that's 1/2 of all newly let office space in Brum last year!)

    The Jewelry Quarter is a lovely little area.

    Mr C and I went there when he bought me my Eternity ring.

    Yep, it's quite a nice place to visit if you're in the market for something shiny. We had Mrs VWDan's engagement and wedding ring handmade there

    Edinburgh by some considerable distance in the second largest financial area in Britain.

    Birmingham is a laughable suggestion. Although if the nationalists get their way it will be battling it out with Trumpton.

    Not going to get many companies there.

    Maybe they could house the homeless in the tower blocks?
