Shearer Property Group (SPG) has selected The Hill Group as its development/funding partner for City Centre South (CCS). The €535m (£450m) landmark, mixed-use regeneration scheme will truly transform Coventry City Centre. Raising new dawn for the city and establishing Coventry as a new Midlands mixed-use destination, CCS will include an extensive selection of retail, hospitality, leisure, and healthcare facilities to support the local community. Designed to attract people back into the city to live, work and play, including graduate students from Coventry and Warwick Universities, CCS will offer a wide range of homes comprising studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments available to buy or rent.
Award-winning architects Allies & Morrison have been appointed by SPR to provide inspirational architecture and landscaping which reimagines this part of the City, but carefully respects and enhances the existing heritage of the city and Grade II listed buildings. Designed to aid health and wellbeing, including a combination of communal gardens and private balconies, all properties will incorporate the latest energy-efficient and sustainable technology.
"We are delighted to have been selected to deliver a vibrant new district in this historic part of the city. Our experience in urban regeneration and expansion will enable us to provide an inspirational destination that appeals to residents and visitors alike. From my first visit, I was overwhelmed with the ambitions for this City, and excited by the prospect of delivering the missing ingredient – new high-quality homes that bring living back into the heart of Coventry," said Andy Hill, Group Chief Executive.
"After an extensive selection process for a residential partner, we are delighted to be supporting the Council in partnership with Hill, who have a complementary skill set to ours. They are a stand-out private organisation with a superlative track record in designing and building a quality residential product. CCS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a top 12 UK city to deliver a game-changing project which will bring about the long-anticipated renaissance of a great City," commented Guy Shearer of SPG.
