Junction of Victoria and Cleveland Streets, Wolverhampton
Although less than three hundred metres from the city centre, this area behind the lower end of both streets is only now becoming the target of the developers. These old frontages, and the newer ones seen further up Cleveland Street (to the right in the picture) this side of the Wulfrun Centre, are unlikely to last much longer, because compulsory purchase orders were served in 2006.

However the huge plans for city regeneration in building the "Summer Row" shopping development are now on hold due (a) to stalling tactics by the owners of the Wulfrun Centre, and (b) the severe financial implications of the "credit crunch" which have now developed following the inept practices of some mortgage companies and banks in all parts of the world.

October 2014: This eyesore was demolished in late September. Apparently the site will be temporarily used as a car park.
