Steinfeld Law acted for The Time + Space Co. Limited, the developer and operator of new multi-million pound film studio in Birmingham.
The site, located at Digbeth Loc, has been confirmed as the studios where the upcoming Peaky Blinders film will be shot. The project was a joint venture between Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and Piers Read of Time + Space and attracted £1.3m in public money through the city deal fund with Homes England and Birmingham City Council. The development of existing warehouses and new state-of-the-art studio spaces is expected to complete by 15 July, with filming for Peaky Blinders planned for October. In addition, the site will offer music production capacity, with studio space already taken up by legendary Birmingham band UB40, and the neighbouring Banana Warehouse already being studio space taken by BBC’s Masterchef.
Steinfeld Law acted for Time + Space with regards to three separate leases at Digbeth Loc, in addition to the crucial licences required to govern the development and facilitate the local authority’s funding. West Midlands mayor Andy Street commented that this was a “landmark moment” for Birmingham and the region, expected to contribute more than £30m, to the local economy.
