Plans are being drawn up to transform an industrial park in Coventry into a vibrant living, work and leisure development.
Warwickshire-based developers and property owners The Wigley Group have master-planned the Sandy Lane Industrial Estate and plan to create around 200 new homes on the site which borders the Coventry Canal.
Daimler Wharf would include a mix of houses, apartments, employment spaces as well as cafes and outdoor leisure spaces and would also open up the canal-side for local residents.
The site is home to the Daimler building – one of the first car factories in the world – which is being transformed into the Daimler Powerhouse arts complex for artists, engineers, architects and other creative industries by Imagineer Productions.
The new Daimler Wharf plans will be showcased at MIPIM – the world’s biggest property development and investment show this month.
The Wigley Group is a member of the Coventry and Warwickshire MIPIM Partnership made up of companies and organisations who represent the area as part of the UK Midlands presence at the event which attracts 30,000 delegates.
The Wigley Group has been working with development consultant Mike Vining on Daimler Wharf, and he will be part of the company’s delegation at MIPIM where they will further discuss their plans with Coventry City Council.
The Wigley Group own an extensive portfolio of commercial property and landholdings across the Midlands and is the company behind the regeneration of a 40-acre industrial site at Edgwick Park in Coventry, which has transformed the area over the last four decades.
