Solihull is a large market town in the West Midlands. Solihull is the most affluent towns in the West Midlands and as of the 2011 census had a population of 123,187. Solihull has seen numerous construction projects over the past couple of years and has multiple constructions projects in the pipeline, such as:

Westgate

This flagship office building will loom large over the key route between Solihull Station and the main shopping area. The multi-storey, which will be among the town's tallest landmarks, is seen as one of the first pieces of the jigsaw in terms of improving the town centre.

HS2 Interchange Station

The station which will eventually open near the NEC is arguably the single biggest scheme approved in Solihull for years. Solihull approved the station but attention now turns to some of the finer details, with the council keen to swap surface level parking for more compact multi-storeys.
