Coventry Leisure Centre Site

Coventry Leisure Centre site

The iconic, former Coventry Leisure Centre site provides a large leisure led development opportunity in close proximity to a large student population for immediate investment.

Promoted by Coventry City Council and Rainier Developments Ltd, the former Coventry Leisure Centre and swimming baths located inside the A4053 Ring Road and just East of Coventry Cathedral in the city centre. The property lies between Coventry University buildings to the south and a substantial development of new student accommodation, over 1,000 rooms, to the north.

The main pool hall boasts a striking ’W’ shaped roof design and impressive full height glazed southern elevation which was Grade II listed in 1997. It is proposed that the pool voids be filled to provide a large, open and flexible floor area overlooked by the refurbished seating terraces, creating a modern and flexible auditorium well suited to a range of new uses.

The building offers a total floor space of around 117,940 sqft (10,957 sqm)
