Nottingham announces £1bn of development opportunities at MIPIM

Team Nottingham will launch more than £1bn of investment opportunities at MIPIM on Tuesday (14 Mar) before an international audience.

Nottingham Investment Opportunities features 26 schemes across the county including Unity Square in the city centre and the Island site, highlighting the city’s status as a leading business centre in the East Midlands.

The brochure, which has been published by Invest in Nottingham, includes key facts for investors considering the city and details on each of the 26 opportunities being presented at MIPIM.

Nottingham is playing a significant role in twelve events taking place in the Midlands Pavilion, including presentations and panel discussions on bringing forward regeneration projects, funding development, the growth of the digital and life science economies and more.

Leader of Nottingham City Council, Councillor Jon Collins will be on the panel of a discussion event that will look at the wider economic and social impacts of HS2 throughout the UK, including Nottingham.

He said:

“Nottingham is already the biggest business centre in the East Midlands and the city council is determined to ensure that it compares with the very best regional capitals across Europe, ensuring it is a city where people choose to live, work and enjoy a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

“Nottingham has a knowledge-intensive economy and significant expertise in growth sectors including life sciences, creative and digital and fintech. Our reputation in these key areas continues to grow; we have dedicated incubators for fintech at Accelerate Places and life sciences at BioCity, where a new extension has just been completed with the addition of the Discovery Building and MediCity.

“The new Nottingham Investment Opportunities document helps to underline our commitment to the city’s future and to highlight what we have to offer here.”

The document will be available on the Invest in Nottingham website this week and an iPad version will also be used at MIPIM to showcase the city to potential investors.
