Major multi-million pound city centre regeneration scheme in Coventry moves a step closer

The scheme is set to create around 1,500 permanent jobs, with over 2,000 more during the building work.

Coventry City Council has approved the appointment of our client Shearer Property Group to transform the heart of Coventry, West Midlands, United Kingdom.

The project, named ‘City Centre South’, will transform some of the most out-dated areas of the city centre, including Bull Yard, Shelton Square, City Arcade and Hertford Street and will make the city the second biggest shopping destination in the West Midlands.

Designed by Chapman Taylor, the development proposal includes a major department store, three major flagship stores, up to 50 new retail units, a multi-storey car park, a premium cinema and other leisure uses such as bowling, new restaurants, private and rented residential and student accommodation and a hotel.

The whole scheme will connect the city’s much-loved circular market with the rest of the centre, with the aim to have the development open for business by 2022.

Guy Shearer from Shearer Property Group said, “We are thrilled to have been chosen by the City Council to deliver this vitally important regeneration project. This site lies in the very heart of the City Centre and is huge by any standards – about the size of ten football pitches. It finally provides the opportunity to deliver a transformational scheme that will put Coventry back on the map as a retail and leisure destination."

Adrian Griffiths from Chapman Taylor commented, “We have worked very successfully with Shearer Property Group on a number of city centre regeneration projects and we are proud to have been selected for this prestigious project. For many years’ Chapman Taylor have been at the forefront of city centre regeneration and we look forward to utilising this experience to further help transform Coventry City Centre."
