It seems the plans got mixed up with a 1980s hotel intended for the ringroad around Coventry. .

Unfortunately Coventry like many English towns got it absolutely arseways in planning terms during the 1960’s by building ringroad style inner orbitals in Coventry’s case a mere 500m in places from the main st. Every planning student should be taken to Wolverhampton to display exactly how not to develop areas just off the retail core.

It’s very pedestrian-friendly, only too much so – the vast plaza-like space here simply encourages pedestrians to wander willy nilly about the roadway.

Agreed a little more visual seperation may have been better; but take nothing away from the acheivement of turning this area from a criminaly central wasteland to a credible second tier retail location in a five year period.
