Restaurant and hotel plans for £360m Coventry development

Plans for new restaurants and a hotel in Coventry have been revealed as part of the £360m City Centre South development.

Coventry City Council approved the appointment of the Shearer Property Group for the 818,000 sq ft mixed-use development in January. The firm has already worked on schemes such as the Parkway shopping centre in Newbury, the Grand Arcade in Cambridge and the new restaurant quarter at Cathedral Lanes in the city.

City Centre South will transform some of the oldest areas of the city centre, including Bull Yard, Shelton Square, City Arcade and Hertford Street, into a development that will include a major department store, retail units, restaurants and a hotel. The scheme will connect the city's circular market with the rest of the centre.

The hotel and restaurants will be located in the leisure part of the development in Hertford Street, linking to Broadgate Square.

The development is hoped to be open for business by 2022.

Councillor George Duggins, leader of Coventry City Council, said: "When you look at all the changes happening around Coventry and see the ambitious plans for City Centre South, it shows there are great times ahead for our city."
