As the opening of Birmingham’s massive new library approaches in September 2013 I am keen to try and assess what economic impact it will make. Undoubtedly it will have a significant cultural impact but will it match the ICC, and Millennium Point in economic returns for the £200m spent?
1)Has any impact research been done on this development?
2) Are there comparator developments that have been studied in other cities?
3) Should we expect economic impact?
Please let me know!
