Axis Square is located in the heart of Birmingham city centre, adjacent to the Mailbox and Arena Central. It is less than a quarter of a mile walk from Birmingham New Street Station and is bounded to the north by Holliday Street.

The existing Axis building is an increasingly dated 11-storey 1970s office building surrounded by landscaped open land and surface car parking. The building sits in the middle of a 4.15 acre (1.68 hectare) site which was formerly a railway depot in the 1920s.

The site is in a prime position for substantial redevelopment to improve connectively, public realm and rejuvenate the immediate local area.
