Invest in Nottingham

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is to develop a new East Midlands hub in Nottingham, boosting regeneration of the Southside area of the city.

The office will be part of the Unity Square development, opposite Nottingham Train Station.

The move has been lauded as hugely significant for the city by Invest in Nottingham, sending a strong message of the “government’s confidence” in Nottingham.

Unity Square’s initial development phase will bring the equivalent of 4000 full-time jobs to Nottingham and is set to open in summer 2021.

Ralph Jones is managing director of Peveril Securities, who are joint developers of Unity Square.

He labelled HMRC’s hub a “giant step forward” for Nottingham and said: “There is significant long-term investment in this area of the city.

“Nottingham Train Station was the catalyst and coming up is intu Broadmarsh’s forthcoming redevelopment along with other significant schemes expected over the next couple of years.

“It is an exciting time for Nottingham with many significant schemes on the horizon and cranes expected on the Unity Square site in the next 12 months.”
