Full Property Description


The city of Wolverhampton has a population of 252,000 (2015 estimate) and forms part of the West Midlands conurbation with a population of 2.50 million (2015 estimate). The city is located at the very heart of the UK, with Birmingham 18 miles to the south east, Manchester 66 miles to the north and London 127 miles to the south east.

Wolverhampton is also at the centre of the country’s infrastructure platform. The city is served by the M6, M6 Toll and M54 motorways, which further connect with the M5, M42, M40 and M1, providing excellent connectivity with the national motorway network. The town’s main arterial roads are the A41 which leads south east towards Birmingham and north west into Shropshire. The A460 and A449 lead north towards the M54 (Junctions 1 and 2 respectively) and south towards Dudley. Junctions 1 & 2 of the M54 are 4 miles to the north and Junction 10 of the M6 is 5 miles to the east.

Wolverhampton Railway Station is served by the West Coast Mainline with a journey time to Birmingham New Street of 20 minutes and London Euston of 1 hour 40 minutes, also with direct rail connections to Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The city centre is served by Line 1 of the Midland Metro Rapid Transport Network, providing connections to West Bromwich and Birmingham city centre.

Wolverhampton’s central location, excellent communications, along with its skilled and accessible labour force have proved to be very attractive to major logistics / manufacturing occupiers, having recently benefited from significant investment from Jaguar Land Rover, Poundland, Moog, UTC Aerospace, ERA Locks and Wiggle amongst others.



The property is situated on Macrome Road, approximately 2 miles to the north west of Wolverhampton city centre and 2 miles from Junction 2 of the M54. The A449 which is one of the main arterial routes into Wolverhampton from the north of the city centre is approximately one mile to the east.

The surrounding uses are predominantly industrial and residential.  The critical mass of residential development surrounding the property ensures the property has long term redevelopment potential and underpins the residual value of the site.
