With their central position within the UK, proximity to national motorway and rail networks, offices to let in Coventry are ideal for a variety of businesses.
The city offers an incredible talent pool, driven by its two universities – namely, Coventry University and University of Warwick. These universities are well known for courses in engineering, mathematics and leadership – to name a few – and generate ideal skillsets for aspirational and innovative businesses, as well as those responsible for critical decision-making.
Coventry is now a technology hub, with key business sectors including advanced manufacturing and engineering, automotive, gaming and energy and low carbon technologies. It is home to a broad range of innovative and specialised businesses, including blue-chip companies such as JLR and Amazon. Together, Coventry and Warwickshire have also become a centre for innovation, with UK BIC – UK Battery Industrialisation Centre – being a prime example.
Coventry provides a rich and diverse range of amenities, including many high street retailers and independent outlets, as well as hotels, bars, cafés, music venues and much more. This historic city is known for the role it played in the Second World War, as well as the stories of Lady Godiva, which date back to the 11th century.
The city has also enjoyed, and continues to undergo, a range of investment and redevelopment. The £200m City Centre South project delivers a major retail and leisure-led regeneration scheme with shops, a cinema, restaurants, hotel and parking. The extension of Coventry Railway Station is an £82m programme to transform the station and aspects of the surrounding area, such as a multi-storey car park and new bus interchange. Finally, Friargate, the city’s first business district is a £700m development and delivery priority for both Coventry City Council and West Midlands Combined Authority.
All of this comes together to make offices to let in Coventry an enticing prospect for many occupiers.
