CDP acquired the former Trinity Mirror land holdings in Coventry, inclusive of the former Coventry Telegraph headquarters, to deliver something missing from the city centre landscape, that of a high quality boutique hotel.
CDP’s focus has been directed to the front corner section of the purchased site and the original entrance to the Coventry Telegraph offices, with its majestic reception areas and above this red cedar wood panelled offices, where it is felt would make a perfect conversion to a 1950’s style retro hotel.
The delivery of the hotel has substantial support throughout the city, not only from the City Council, but from other influential bodies such as Coventry Cathedral, the West Midlands Combined Authority and the City of Culture 2021 Team.
The importance of this part of the overall scheme has led to an acceptance for a large part of the development being utilised for further student housing development to allow the scheme to financially stack up.
CDP are working in partnership with UK based independent operator Bespoke Hotels, who will operate the new hotel which is due to open in Autumn 2020 www.bespokehotels.com
