Part of the City Council's concept to develop the east side beyond the City Centre, this name has been coined by the City Council for the area around Warwick Bar on Fazeley Street as far as the Custard Factory in Deritend/ Digbeth. It has recently been dubbed Lower Eastside after one of New York's artistically creative districts, though it remains to be seen if the name will stick.
