23-29 Warwick Road | Student Accommodation | 12/14fl | Withdrawn

Proposal for a new student residential scheme on Warwick Road to provide 460 studio rooms, hub space and external landscaping. The scheme will require the demolition of Bank House (a 1960s office building) as well as 25 & 29 Warwick Road (two 19th century villas).

Planning application: http://planning.coventry.gov.uk/port...et?PKID=803382

The design has a seventies feel to it.

Whilst I’m disappointed about the demise of the pair of existing villas, I really like this design.

This application has been withdrawn. Suspect it will resurface in some form. Not too fussed. Agree with Dr P, it has a 70s feel to it. Needs a total rethink imo.

I think you're right and it will come back with a revised design.

The side elevations are fine and the concept of the towers being set back is good, but the front of the towers need tidying up. Something more like One Friargate would be good. It would be good to have another building of significant massing and height close to Friargate and along the city centre-train station route.
