Most of the blocks of high rise flats had gone when I was last in Coventry which was Summer 2011. Does anyone know what replaced them?

I read somewhere that Hillfields was one of three Coventry areas that were identified for comprehensive redevelopment in the 60s. Does anyone know what the other two were ?

It’s possible one of them was at the Butts although this may have been a little earlier than the 60’s. There was some pretty widespread clearance of properties that were originally occupied by workers at Rover and Rudge. The development around the Butts (although covering a fairly similar area of land to that in Hillfields off Primrose Hill Street) was nowhere near as commanding in scale.
