City of Wolverhampton Council officers and Interchange partners, including London Midland and the Canal and River Trust, gathered to view the gem in the £10.6 million office, retail and leisure development next to the bus and train station.

Greene King and Superdrug have already signed up as new retail tenants on the ground floor, with Superdrug already beginning the process of fitting out their unit.

The council is in advanced negotiations with a number of businesses for the remaining 3 ground floor retail units and the 3 floors of BREEAM Excellent standard office accommodation.

The remaining retail unit will be marketed in the New Year. Planners gave i10 the green light in March 2014 and the project has been delivered on time and on budget by Neptune Developments and Balfour Beatty.
