A landmark building in Coventry city centre is set for a facelift and four new retail units will become available.

The building that houses Cosmo in Corporation Street is set to be re-clad in the same style as other units in the same area as part of the wider regeneration of that part of the city centre.

The Co-Operative, The Belgrade Theatre and The Coventry Telegraph building are all part of the improvement on Corporation Street in the build-up to Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture in 2021.

The work will also see four ground floor retail units – all between 1,000 and 1,560 sq ft – become available to let through commercial property specialists Holt Commercial.

Nick Holt, director of Holt Commercial, said: “This part of Coventry city centre has already seen a major uplift with the hugely successful development at The Co-Operative, while the Belgrade Theatre and former Telegraph building are also undergoing development work.

“The ‘Cosmo’ building is another piece of the jigsaw in a now popular area of the city centre to undergo refurbishment and the new cladding will bring it into line with other properties in Corporation Street.

“The units will be very good specification and will be available separately or as one single unit. We are taking enquiries now.”
