Mill Street Goods Depot
The project explored the potential to reclaim and redefine this heritage canal-side site, close to Wolverhampton’s new £150 million transport interchange, on land off Horseley Fields in the city centre.
The proposal was designed to shape, enrich and revitalise Wolverhampton’s Mill Street Goods Depot to provide high-tech start-up office space, with external public realm improvements, and a streetscape to support the development.
Redefining five acres of brownfield land adjacent to Wolverhampton train station, the scheme is set to breathe new life into this prominent heritage location. The ambitious development will incorporate a new promenade, public open spaces, landscaping and the restoration of listed buildings. New pedestrian access to the canal towpath will encourage freedom of movement and enhance the identity of the area. To the east of the former Goods Depot, the proposed residential scheme will incorporate a mix of apartments and town houses connected to the station via a pedestrianisation and resurfacing scheme, along with bridged link access.
The transformational regeneration of the Canalside Quarter and stunning waterside residential scheme is set to unearth the true potential of this historic brownfield site, close to Wolverhampton’s newly opened transport interchange.
The project is in early stages of development discussions. Preliminary concept design works were carried out by team members from Vincent & Brown, whilst at a former practice.
