Upgrading a key city centre square

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.

Improving Coventry's Upper Precinct and restoring its historic views

Removing insensitive modern additions

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

Chapman Taylor is responsible for designing this prominent urban asset enhancement project
