The Birmingham Alliance plans for the transformation of the old Grade 2 listed Moor Street Station into an exciting new gateway to the city have been given the go-ahead by the council the work commenced in 2002 and completed in October 2003

The Edwardian building, built in 1909, had lain derelict since 1986. It is now being carefully and sympathetically refurbished in the style of a circa 1930's station, with brickwork, colouring, signage, fixtures and fittings chosen to reflect this era. Wherever possible, the existing features will be
retained and refurbished.

The original entrance gates and central pillar from the old Snow Hill Station will be used in the station design-and the restored wrought iron Booking Hall entranceway from Snow Hill will form a focal point for the station entrance.

The refurbishment will include a wine bar, a coffee bar, a shop and other kiosks. The wine bar, designed to complement the existing building, incorporates the listed building frontage from the former Parcels Office, which was saved for this purpose when the rest of the building was demolished.

Platform signs and seating will be designed to replicate the originals, and the concourse will be lit using reproduction GWR lamps The Re-furbished station will incorporate the existing Moor Street Station and be operated by Chiltern Railways.
