L&G to turn Birmingham’s House of Fraser into offices

Legal & General will turn the former Rackhams buildings, which were once home to House of Fraser, into new office space in Birmingham’s city centre.

The buildings are located between Temple Row and Corporation Street.

Proposals for the redevelopment are being prepared for submission to Birmingham City Council before the end of the year.

L&G will seek to deliver more than 365,000 sq ft of office space over nine floors, nearly 60,000 sq ft of retail and leisure and a boutique hotel of more than 75,000 sq ft on the corner of Cherry Street and Temple
