Chapman Taylor reveals improvement proposals for Upper Precinct, Coventry

Planned improvements to Upper Precinct

Chapman Taylor is pleased to announce that our proposals for improvements to Coventry city centre’s Upper Precinct were well-received at a public exhibition of the plans held last week.

Our proposals on behalf of JP Morgan and Shearer Property Group include the removal of many insensitive modern additions to the post-war architecture which have proved detrimental to the urban environment.

Chapman Taylor’s plan restores views to the historic cathedral spire and enhances the quality of the area’s public realm. Retail outlets have been improved and high-quality shop fronts have been introduced, while the upper levels contain new student accommodation.

Should planning permission be granted, work will begin on this major asset enhancement project in the summer of 2018.

The development forms part of the ongoing regeneration of Coventry city centre, a programme which is backed by Coventry City Council.
