Major double announcement for Coventry

Monday 11th of March 2019 03:09 PM

A leading property developer is set to announce major new developments in Coventry – and plans to create a modular building plant in the city.

Regents Affordable, with support from its public and private sector collaborators, plans to help the city become an engineering hub creating homes that meets the housing needs of people across the UK.

Regents Affordable started working in Coventry in 2018, delivering 740 bed student accommodation Regents Godiva.

At MIPIM – the world’s biggest property development and investment show – it will launch its regeneration plans, which include student and mixed-use developments as well as building a modular factory in Coventry by 2023.

It is also collaborating with multi-stakeholder organisation Agile Ageing Alliance to build the UK’s first ‘Neighborhoods of the Future’ multi-generational communities.

Chief Executive of Regents Affordable Jonathan Parnes said: “Regents Affordable has built strong relationships with some of the most innovative thinkers and doers today. We’ve been delighted that, in Coventry City Council and Coventry University as well as housing associations, we have met forward-thinking collaborators.

“The time seems right to build quality developments which fit the needs of our multigenerational society and we will introduce our collaboration with Agile Ageing Alliance at MIPIM.”

Regents Affordable launches its plans at an event when they will be joined by Richard Moon, Director of Project Management and Property Services at Coventry City Council, who will talk about the city’s needs and the current climate for change. The lunch will be chaired by Melanie Leech, Chief Executive of the British Property Foundation.

Regents Affordable is a member of the Coventry and Warwickshire MIPIM Partnership – made up of companies and organisations in a range of property-related sectors – attending MIPIM as part of the UK Midlands presence.
