An eyesore concrete skeleton that has blighted the Wolverhampton skyline for three years is finally being converted into flats after workers returned to complete the job.

The 104-flat scheme near the city's former Low Level Station has resumed with scaffolding erected around the unfinished frame that has stood desolate amid a deserted building site since 2008.

Bosses at developer Barratt Homes today said they hoped the first flats would hit the market during 2011. Workers had downed tools as the housing market slowed three years ago.

Stephen Cleveley, senior sales manager for the West Midlands, said: "We have recently started work on the construction of our development on Sun Street in Wolverhampton, called Horizon.

"This landmark project will comprise a mix of 104 one and two-bedroom apartments. We hope to commence sales later in the year."

The new flats are being built close to the Premier Travel Inn and The Bluebrick bar, which occupy the same site.
