Warehouse scheme for Coventry Airport

Detailed plans for three self-contained warehouses totalling nearly 600,000 sq ft have been put forward by Ostrava Properties, the property division of Rigby Group for the redevelopment of former passenger facilities at Coventry Airport.

Construction of the warehouses of 63,500 sq ft, 165,000 sq ft and 350,000 sq ft is expected in August with completion in Spring 2017. The scheme, to be known as Imperial Park, is being marketed by Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield and DP Holt.

The company expects to issue invitations to tender for the park’s construction next month, and says it has already attracted interest from a “number of companies” due to the site’s “central location and excellent transport links”.
