Change of use to exhibition galleries (D1), ancillary cafe and associated internal alterations and landscaping works.
Today the planning committee approved the plans submitted by Ikon Gallery to refurbish the Curzon Street Station and prepare it for use as a gallery. This is part of the wider Curzon Square proposal.
Ikon proposes Curzon Square to be Birmingham’s new museum quarter. Comprising Ikon 2, a museum of contemporary art and temporary exhibition space, a museum of photography and a building for an existing national collection, it will be the vital factor in an equation that results in cultural league success for the city.
Curzon Street Station is to be the new Museum of Photography, drawing from the extensive collection of the new Library of Birmingham. Further information on the Curzon Square proposal can be seen below.
