Located in the West Midlands, the city of Wolverhampton is home to over a quarter of a million people.
After Birmingham, Wolverhampton is the second largest part of the West Midlands conurbation. It has green belt space around the western part of the city and to the north of it lies the Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside. This makes it an ideal location for those with a penchant for enjoying our country’s rural heritage.
It has undergone many regeneration schemes in recent years, resulting in a location that is both aware and respectful of its heritage but moving forward with the modern era.
Wolverhampton has a great deal to offer residents old and new, and with motorway access and strong public transport connections, it is emerging as a hub for a great many people. Our projects in Wolverhampton will serve the community well.
A city of industry and culture
In terms of cultural investment, an ambitious 5‑year events programme has been drawn up. Designed to bring in visitors and boost the local economy, it will also focus on events and new public spaces.
While regeneration has been respectful of the local heritage, Wolverhampton is firmly placing itself as a city with excellent central transport links. To this end, the £150million award-winning Interchange scheme has delivered a state of the art hub to connect by tram, train or bus.
All in all, it is a very exciting time to invest in property in this up and coming city.
Arts in the city
In recent years the city gained the attention of art lovers when 30 wolf sculptures were installed around the centre and subsequently auctioned for charity.
As well as its strong industrial history, Wolverhampton has a vibrant city centre, including a creative quarter with popular venues such as The Slade Rooms, the Light House Media Centre Arthouse Cinema and the Arena Theatre.
Wolverhampton on the up
With one of the fastest-growing economies in the UK, Wolverhampton is emerging as an attractive hub for investment from both the public and private sectors.
The area is undergoing a fast-paced regeneration – reported to be costing around 55 million. It will include 5G and full-fibre roll-out, plus there are bold plans for the city’s commercial district; including job creation.
Historically part of Staffordshire, Wolverhampton grew as a market town at first and was known for its expertise in the woollen trade. Once industry began to flourish, it became known for coal mining, steel production and the manufacturing of cars and motorcycles. In the modern era, it is known for having a sizeable aerospace industry and a formidable service sector.
The main source of employment in the area nowis the service sector and major employers include the council, Wolverhampton College and the University of Wolverhampton. There’s also been a sharp increase in new businesses, which has created more jobs.
