Future Systems confirmed for £40m Birmingham Selfridges

  • Comment

Future Systems has clinched a major new commission to design a £40 million Selfridges store in Birmingham.

The scheme, which partner Amanda Levete said will be 'recognisably in our style' is set to be a stand-alone part of Hammerson, Land Securities and Henderson Investors' plans for the controversial new-look Bull Ring in Britain's second city.

The new Selfridges - which will mark a coming of age for the Stirling Prize winning practice - will figure as part of the wider Benoy-designed scheme. It will be the anchor store for the whole development with the largest frontage in the project. To be built next to St Martin's church, the four-storey building will run to around 20,000m2 of shop-space. The practice is also masterplanning a large mixed-use scheme in Clerkenwell, London, and is understood to have provided architectural support for a major-occupier- led scheme near Heathrow. Selfridges was set to make a statement about its Birmingham venture today.

At Oxford Street, London, meanwhile, Foster and Partners is being linked with plans for a casino to be built on the older Selfridge store's roof.
