Chamberlain Square - A Birmingham Gem!

Chamberlain Square is where a modern and thriving Birmingham connects with the City's amazing history and heritage. The square was completely redeveloped between 2010 and 2020.


Chamberlain Square was named after the statesman and past mayor of Birmingham, Joseph Chamberlain. 

Chamberlain Square is at the heart of the Paradise scheme with One Chamberlain Square and Two Chamberlain Square being the flagship builds of the Paradise development, whilst The Chamberlain Memorial unveiled in 1880 continues to take centre stage.

The following mix of photographs takes a look at the changes in Chamberlain Square over a 10 year period, starting with what it looked liked in 2010 when Birmingham Central Library was located in the Square, and through the demolition works in 2016 and construction of 1 & 2 Chamberlain Square from 2017 to 2020.
