Park Central is a large development under construction on the outskirts of Birmingham city center in England.

The Lee Bank area, on which Park Central is located, had become run down over time and required redevelopment. As a result, Crest Nicholson decided to develop the area with new mid and high rise properties. Numerous 1960s residential buildings were demolished, including Haddon Tower which was destroyed on July 23, 2006. Construction began in late 2005 with the levelling of the land and, as of June 2016, 1,309 homes have been built and the construction of the final phase (known as the Lexington Quarter and consisting of 339 further units) is under way.

Two supermarket chains, Tesco and Asda, had submitted proposals for stores within or adjacent to the development, but neither is going ahead.
