Due to open in late Spring 2021, the Cleveland Road development represents an £8.4 million investment into Wolverhampton City.
Located off the A41 and adjacent to the historic Royal Hospital, this city gateway scheme is an important landmark project, which has been partly funded by Homes England, Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership, and YMCA Black Country Group.
Built on the site of a former bus depot, Cleveland Road is a model example of a brownfield regeneration partnership between voluntary, public, and private sectors. YMCA’s vision is to bring positive transformation to communities, helping local people to develop, both in mind, body & spirit.
The project team has worked closely to develop a new multi-purpose space to meet local strategic objectives. Secured by local developer, Jessup Brothers, the scheme represents a step toward the large-scale redevelopment of the city centre, alongside great connectivity, arts, culture, and a booming commercial district.
As project monitors for the scheme, we have taken careful consideration to provide an independent and impartial assessment of the development as it progresses. So far, the project has seen the development of:
- 74 apartments and 18 houses for open-market sale.
- YMCA Head Office, including 63 studio and cluster apartments for young professionals working in the city.
- Ground-floor retail units.
- A nursery, offering day-care and education for up to 120 children.
The design, created by BPN Architects, reflects Wolverhampton’s industrial heritage and exhibits a contemporary facet that offsets the Royal Hospital period features. With the project set for completion in 2021, Wolverhampton will have a thriving new multipurpose space, fit for the ever-changing needs of the city.
