Redevelopment of Paradise Birmingham Paradise is a £500m development that will transform the centre of Birmingham and is less than 5 minutes’ walk form the ICC, attracting new businesses, jobs and visitors to the city. It is on the site of the old Birmingham Central Library and the phase 1 demolition works are now in completion. There are new road routes around this area, although from 19th June 2016 some restrictions have been lifted and roads reopened, improving journeys in the local area. Signposts are in place for diversions and routes surrounding the ICC loading bays and parking facilities are now open. For more information about how this may affect your journey to the ICC visit Paradise Birmingham or download the latest Paradise Birmingham Access Route Plan.
