A major, office-led regeneration scheme at the centre of UK. Comprising 300,000 m2 the site has planning consent and benefits from excellent rail and road links.
Friargate will be the leading transformational project within the Coventry & Warwickshire region. Uniquely located adjacent to Coventry Station, Friargate is at the centre of local and national transport connections.

The office-led scheme is planned to be sustainable with efficient, low energy buildings around a vibrant new public realm. Key to the masterplan will be a new pedestrian boulevard linking the station with the city centre. The new boulevard will improve the legibility of the city at street level and with city-wide access, the scheme is designed to facilitate further urban renewal in the city beyond the master plan area.

Friargate Coventry LLP in partnership with Coventry City Council, is preparing to launch the new business district for the city right next to Coventry station. Friargate covers an area of 37 acres - the equivalent to around 25 football pitches – and will provide 300,000 square metres (3.2 million square feet) of space in 26 new buildings.

Planned new office buildings can provide up to 15,000 new jobs during the life of the project that is forecast to take 15 years to reach full completion. Proposals include two new hotels, new homes and supporting retail and restaurants.

Coventry City Council has backed the proposals from the beginning and in addition to granting planning permission for the ambitious master plan, the council has entered into a Collaboration Agreement with the developer to ensure the support continues into the delivery phase.
