The £55 million leisure-led Westside scheme features an illuminated public square, a multiplex cinema, 50,000 square feet of additional leisure space, new restaurants covering 40,000 square feet, a 100-plus bed hotel and a multi-storey car park all lined up for phase one. Phase two will deliver more than 300 new city centre homes and 50,000 square feet of retail and leisure space. Westside is expected to be completed by early 2020, creating a destination which will serve the city for generations to come.

CANALSIDE QUARTER
An area packed with history and a past industrial heritage, the canal basin to the north east of central Wolverhampton has been an untapped hidden gem for many years.

Over the next few years it will be transformed into the Canalside Quarter, utilising it’s unique character to provide a destination for visitors with shops, walkways, cycle paths and leisure facilities.

MOLINEUX QUARTER
Many major cities are synonymous worldwide with their football clubs and the City of Wolverhampton is no different. The club is currently working together with the City Council, and the University of Wolverhampton on a vision for the Molineux Quarter to create a striking northern gateway to the city which will considerably improve the pedestrian and cycling experience in the area. Sitting alongside the stadium is the new £18 million Business School, complementing the university’s growing city campus.

THE INTERCHANGE
The interchange area is being transformed via £120 million of public and private investment, to create a modern gateway to the city centre with a new railway station, enhanced facilities for motorists and cyclists and a Metro extension. The interchange will bring bus, rail, and metro into one integrated commuter hub together.
