A journey through Wolverhampton today will tell you that there’s a lot going on – notably, the city centre is a bit of a building site and this isn’t going to let up for a while. We visited a couple of locations to look at the progress and get the odd photograph for you good people.

i10 and Wolverhampton Interchange

A £10.6 million development at the junction of Pipers Row and Railway Drive, so far i10 boasts a pub restaurant from the Hungry Horse chain and a possible Superdrug. Lots of modern office space and great transport links (a couple of minutes from the railway station and half a minute from the bus station should see this space filled in no time.

‘The Way’ – Wolverhampton’s Youth Zone

Funded by The Morgan Foundation, The Queen’s Trust and St James’s Place Foundation, ‘The Way‘ is located fronting onto Penn Road island. It follows the  OnSide Youth Zone model that has been so popular in other areas of England. Full of facilities for Wolverhampton’s youth including the pictured five-a-side pitch, ‘The Way’ promises to be a hit.

Sunbeam development

On the opposite side of Penn Road island on the Ring Road at Paul Street, Blakenhall sits the iconic Sunbeam building. Originally a factory, this impressive structure is soon to house 115 residential properties, 32 of which are for people with learning disabilities.

Things aren’t standing still at the moment as our city gets regenerated – watch this space for more updates.
