Own a piece of Coventry’s history at The Co-Operative with Connells

14 May 2019

Luxury apartments in former Co-op building

Connells estate agency in Coventry is delighted to announce that over 70% of apartments have been reserved and move-ins are now taking place at landmark development The Co-Operative – a collection of 63 one and two bedroom apartments in the city’s historical Co-Op department store building.  With high demand expected to continue, the branch is urging all prospective buyers to get in touch for their chance to view the show home and reserve one of the remaining homes.

Built to an exceptional standard by award-winning developer EDG Property, the early character of the building - which dates back to the 1950’s - has been preserved and its three floors sympathetically restored to retain its historical detailing. Many elements of the original frontage remain, including The Co-Operative lettering.

Apartments at The Co-Operative are a stylish combination of contemporary and traditional offering light, open-plan interiors with modern finishes, fully fitted Porcelanosa kitchens and bathrooms, en-suites and fitted wardrobes to the masters and decked roof terraces and secure allocated parking on select apartments. Other highlights include a rooftop resident’s lounge and sky-terrace, exercise areas and private indoor park. ‘Central Park’ is a professionally landscaped space exclusively for residents and the first of its kind in the region.  The Co-Operative is more than just investing in an apartment, it’s a lifestyle.

“The Co-Operative is an exceptional development that perfectly blends the old and the new offering a little piece of Coventry’s history in the form of high quality and affordable homes,” says Hannah Gill, New Homes Area Manager at Connells.  “It’s great to see this historic and much-loved landmark being preserved in the community and it is no surprise to us that it has proved very popular, our first move-ins are extremely satisfied with their new homes.

“The close proximity to such a range of amenities and travel connections, plus the unique onsite facilities, make these apartments a fantastic choice for restoration enthusiasts, commuters, first-time buyers, downsizers and investors. The Co-Operative has even been shortlisted for a RICS and RIBA award - two of the industry's most prestigious awards - recognising the development’s innovative design. With only a handful of properties now remaining and ready for immediate occupation, we would encourage anyone looking to move to this sought-after area to act quickly,” concludes Hannah.

The Co-Operative is ideally located in the heart of the increasingly popular city of Coventry. Voted as the UK’s Capital of Culture 2021, the city is currently undergoing a £9 billion investment programme and boasts a wide array of attractions and amenities including good schools, two universities, a thriving arts and cultural sector and many culinary, shopping and leisure facilities.

For commuting, residents are well served by a wealth of travel connections by both road and rail.  Close proximity to Coventry Ring Road and the A45 ensure the national motorway networks are easily accessible, whilst Coventry railway station (only a short walk away) provides regular direct services to Birmingham Grand Central in just 23 minutes, Northampton in 32 minutes, Oxford in 49 minutes and London Euston in just 62 minutes.

Prices at The Co-Operative start from £165,000 and buyers can utilise the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which provides greater assistance for first-time buyers to get onto the property ladder.  For further information, please contact Connells Coventry on 02476 553 093 or email: coventry@connells.co.uk
