Demolition of the existing buildings at the site to be known as Coventry Logistics Park has got underway.
The project, due to complete by the summer of next year, will feature three units of 484,000 sq ft, 251,000 sq ft and 47,000 sq ft, which have been designed by architect Corstorphine & Wright.
All the units will be built to BREEAM Excellent rating with the two larger units totalling 15 metre eaves and the smaller unit 10 metres.
Pete Goodman Glencar Managing Director Midlands and North said: “Coventry Logistics Park looks set to become one of the West Midlands newest and highest profile logistics/industrial developments and we are absolutely delighted to have been instructed by Bericote and their joint venture partner JP Morgan on the project.
“We are gearing up to get started shortly with the redevelopment of the former Toys R Us site for this brand new three-unit mega scheme.”
