The development was based on 2.2 acres of brownfield land, where more than 300 homes and apartments as well as a Premier Inn hotel were to be constructed. This was the final part of a development programme planned to transform the town which, in recent years, has seen a new hospital, college and art gallery. Walsall was in desperate need of regeneration, and this development programme has been described as a massive vote of confidence for the city centre, as employment in the local area was at an all-time low. Whitbread were central to this project, opening a large Brewers Fayre restaurant alongside the hotel.
