The site between the St Giles Way link road and Bridge Street, which is soon to undergo major development. Part of the area shown was to be the site of a new Wrexham Lager brewery, but sadly the Phoenix Group, who put a great deal of effort into reviving the historic brew, failed in their attempt.

It's not just business that's thriving. Not many towns had big screens for the Live 8 event but Wrexham managed it and it produced a real carnival atmosphere in the town.
