Work to bulldoze Faces nightclub enters final stages

By Richard Guttridge | Wolverhampton | News | Published:

The demolition of a city centre nightclub is continuing at pace, with just the shell of former Faces venue now remaining.

Much of the building, on the corner of Garrick Street and Bilston Street in Wolverhampton, has now been bulldozed.

But that could be easily missed by passing shoppers and commuters as most of the frontage still in place.

A look behind, however, shows much of the building has been reduced to rubble.

The outer part of the building will be taken down carefully once the rest of the site has been cleared.

Workers have been given a challenging task to demolish the old nightclub while nearby roads stay open.

The site will form part of the new Learning Quarter

The old nightclub, which was also known as Oceania and Atlantis in years gone by, will make way for a new Wolverhampton College building forming part of a new multi-million pound Learning Quarter.

The move will see the college leave its long-standing base at Paget Road, with education chiefs keen for a move to the city centre to make it a more attractive proposition for students.

Vacant buildings owned by the council on St George’s Parade will also be pulled down as part of the Learning Quarter project.
