Industrial/Logistics ‘Mid-box’ development pipeline of 860,000sqft across 16 buildings speculatively delivered and let in 2018, £21m of speculative development completing in May 2019 with planning consents in place to deliver a further £74m across 9 buildings.

The deal continues the major improvements already seen to this area of the city centre. Adjacent to 50 Bishop Street the 12th century Grade I Listed former Grammar School is being redeveloped in a £9m project by Coventry Transport Museum to create a world class visitor attraction.

The city centre site benefits from excellent public transport and road links. It doesnÂ’t get more central or better connected in Coventry.
