Property description

1894, Coventry needed power. In 1895 the first Power Station in Coventry began serving the community. The switch on was just the start. The Power Station became the crucial factor in a growing community and rapidly expanded to supply surrounding factories including famous names like Daimler, Standard and Coventry Eagle. The massive turbines generated megawatts for local consumption and were fuelled by coal from local pits, shipped via the canal a neat arrangement all-round. Now Electric Wharf is revived, retaining the best of the Victorian architecture to create stunning spaces, this time buzzing with the life of creative industries and the power of new technology.

Electric Wharf is a community of creative people living and working in a dynamic and attractive canal side environment where converted existing buildings and retained features of the industrial past, together with Architect designed modern additions, come together to create unique spaces for business.

Re-using old buildings and using recycled materials in new construction saves raw materials and reduces land-fill. Working in a community of similar businesses within a short walk of the city centre, reduces vehicle journeys and saves time and money. Living sedum roofs retain water and soften hard urban edges. Electric Wharf's environmental aspects compliment the creative environment at the heart of this unique development.

Artistic involvement runs throughout the design of Electric Wharf with an extravagant flourish in the external areas. At the main entrance, Esther Rolinson has created 'trace elements', a major artwork using LED lighting embedded in reclaimed railway sleepers, a theme which will be continued along the canal frontage in later phases. The original character of the buildings has been recorded by local photographer, Charlie Gallagher and embedded in the finished product through the use of reclaimed materials as integral parts of the scheme.
