Friars House Welcomes University Expansion at Newly Refurbished Offices
The University has committed to doubling its presence in Coventry’s Friars House
Following the securing of the seventh floor, Coventry University has expanded its tenancy at Friars House in Coventry to the ninth floor.
Situated alongside the new £100m Friargate masterplan with plans including new office space, hotels, homes, retail units and restaurants, Friars House forms a key part of one of Coventry’s largest regeneration projects in decades.
The expansion follows a series of new tenants to the building early this year, with Fig Offices, and higher education provider Keypath Education joining existing tenants recruitment group Hays.
The second phase of a £4m refurbishment programme at Friars House completed last month.
Following the completion of phase one of the refurbishment, which included the upgrade of the ground floor reception area and communal areas along with three of the 10 available floors, we renovated the remaining vacant floors within the 70,000 sq ft building.
The recent refurbishment programme has further enhanced Friars House’s status as the location of some of the most attractive office space in Coventry. It’s very pleasing that the University has committed to doubling its presence in the building, and we’re confident it will be fully let in due course.
The joint letting agents for Friars House are Holt Commercial and Cushman & Wakefield.
