The Mailbox has luxury covered with completion of glass roof

Work has been completed on the Mailbox’s brand new roof, moving the refurbishment of the luxury retail and lifestyle destination a step closer to its exciting opening in spring 2015.

The sky-lit glass roof will protect visitors from the unpredictable British weather and will dramatically change the shopping environment, creating a light and airy setting for visitors. The current redevelopment  work is transforming the entire retail mall, complete with new impressive shop window designs and sleek store frontages, as well as an inviting space dubbed the “Urban Room” that will provide visitors with a comfortable place to relax, gather and dine in a stress-free environment, all under-cover.

Visitors can also look forward to the opening of the Everyman three screen cinema, which will open in the spring.

Harvey Nichols, Emporio Armani, Nicky Clarke, Toni & Guy and BBC Birmingham will continue to remain open throughout the refurbishment, along with the popular canalside bars, restaurants, hotels, commercial offices and car park.
