Urban Regeneration

The Brewers Yard Wolverhampton

The Brewers Yard is located to the North East of the city centre and plays a major part in the regeneration of that area of the city, alongside Wolverhampton University’s Springfield Campus.

Located just a few hundred metres from the train station which provides quick, direct access to Birmingham, London and Manchester, the site also offers great access to the city centre and university campuses.

The objective is to deliver transformational placemaking, quality public open space, and innovative construction techniques in a key city centre location. The project will support and address growing city centre housing market demand for a quality product with mixed tenure options, and build upon existing and emerging regional and national transport infrastructure links adjacent to Wolverhampton Railway Station and Wolverhampton University.

The public and private strategic delivery partnership will look to secure investors and occupiers to help deliver this ambitious residential-led mixed-use regeneration project.

City of Wolverhampton Council have secured funding for the site clearance works to support accelerating site preparation and fast-track delivery, leading to de-risked phasing of key investible opportunities from regional, national and international funding institutions.

The proposed scheme sees the regeneration of a 10-acre brownfield site. A £250m mixed-use scheme will see a total of 1,300 city houses and apartments, and 60,000ft² of new retail and commercial space as part of the city’s Canalside regeneration. The scheme aims to deliver high-quality, affordable living in some of Wolverhampton’s tallest towers, alongside high-quality, well-thought-out public realm.

The scheme is set to deliver a number of benefits to the local area, not least through the new residential accommodation, but also through hundreds of permanent new jobs – over 1,000 construction jobs plus built environment apprenticeships and training opportunities being offered to students of the University.

Outline planning consent has been secured and works are progressing to facilitate the site clearance works in preparation for granting vacant possession of the site in 2026.

Investment location

Why invest in Wolverhampton?

Wolverhampton has been backed by the UK government in February’s Levelling Up White Paper to continue to deliver even more ambitious regeneration projects across the city. This is a strong endorsement of the work of City of Wolverhampton Council, who have an impressive track record of delivery in partnership with a range of public and private sector organisations.

With £4.4 billion worth of investment on-site or planned, the face of our city is changing through the creation of a wealth of attractive opportunities for developers and investors. Prime examples of this collaborative working are the award-winning £1 billion i54 Business Park, the £150 million Interchange transport hub, the £17.5 million National Brownfield Institute at the University of Wolverhampton’s Springfield Campus and the £16 million construction of the i9 office complex – now home to the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ second headquarters.

With 10,000 new homes planned, the potential for another 1 million ft² of office space, opportunities in retail, leisure and hospitality, and an enviable portfolio of heritage buildings, Wolverhampton is a prime location for investment in the heart of the UK.
