Daimler Wharf
The Wigley Group has a vision to transform a historic industrial site on the edge of Coventry city centre that was once home of the world-famous Daimler works into a vibrant new neighbourhood for living and work, culture and leisure.

The proposals would see the regeneration of Sandy Lane Industrial Estate into a residential-led, mixed-use development.

Daimler Wharf would transform the seven-acre site bordering Coventry Canal as well as the wider community, providing new homes, employment and commercial spaces, and cultural and leisure amenities.

It would build on the site’s great heritage, regenerate the area and act as a catalyst for the creation of a Northern Quarter for the city of Coventry.

James Davies, managing director of The Wigley Group, said:

Daimler Wharf is an opportunity to reinvigorate a community by providing a new central hub with the right mix of uses that connects to the canal and the city centre, and celebrates Coventry’s industrial past and cultural future.
