the George Hotel. A very restrained neo-Georgian design in
maroon brick with grey stone details, on an exceptionally
important city centre site, it makes its impact its by careful
articulation, with a rhythm of three bays, followed by one
projecting bay, each marked by a first floor window with
pedimented aedicule, leading up to a three bay projecting
centre, distinguished by a stone attic. The ground floor is
continuously articulated by Tuscan pilasters.
In 2012 it was acquired by the University of Wolverhampton. It
will be refurbished, and amongst other things will become the main
entrance to the university.
