FRIARGATE

Coventry

The masterplan for Coventry Friargate will re-establish a straightforward and direct connection between the railway station and the city centre.

The Friargate area includes office buildings constructed in the nineteen sixties and the inner ring road. Our proposal extends Greyfriars Green, an existing park, across the ring road underpass with a wide garden bridge, allowing a direct and level connection between the station, Greyfriars Green and city centre.

A new public square will be created in front of the Grade II listed station and, Warwick Road will be transformed into a tree-lined boulevard, with a public transport interchange close to the station.

The mixed-use scheme will provide high quality office buildings, with restaurants and shops at ground level. Hotels, leisure and community uses are also planned, with housing located in the quieter areas around Grosvenor Road and Manor Road to the east and west of the central quarter.
