Wolverhampton – city of opportunity

Wolverhampton is powering on thanks to public and private sector infrastructure and regeneration projects making it an exciting time to be part of a thriving city bursting with creativity, a rich history and originality.

The face of our city is changing through regeneration projects and the creation of a wealth of attractive opportunities for developers and investors. 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, Homes and Communities’ second headquarters.

With 10,000 new homes planned, the potential for another 1 million square foot 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.

Wolverhampton has several ready-to-go council and partner-owned sites available for development and is committed to working with investors and developers to bring these exciting propositions to life in a secured and phased manner to help protect your investment. There are fantastic opportunities for new hotel development, high quality urban living schemes, next-generation office developments and leisure-related investments. For opportunities, view our Investment Prospectus.

"Multi-billion-pound regeneration is transforming our city and creating a wealth of attractive opportunities for developers and investors.
This is all underpinned by our commitment to a sustainable economy, becoming a net zero carbon city by 2041 and major investment in digital infrastructure to support business growth and deliver a ready-made, skilled workforce.
We are the City of Opportunity and we hope to make some important connections at MIPIM that will benefit Wolverhampton in the future."

Councillor Ian Brookfield, Leader of City of Wolverhampton Council
