More than 100 new student flats could be built on the outskirts of Bath city centre by August 2018.
The 115-bed student housing scheme will be situated behind the Argos warehouse off Upper Bristol Road and Midland Road.
Documents submitted with the application call for a four-storey high purpose-built student accommodation block, that will come with 24-hour management.
Watkin Jones Group hopes that the site will be completed before the start of the 2018/19 academic year, that's if Bath and North East Somerset Council do decide to grant planning consent.
The plans were scaled back from their initial design, which originally called for a five storey high block after residents raised concerns over the height and mass of the building.
Those students located in the south-facing flats will overlook the River Avon and a communal garden and it's hoped that the proposal will improve the Bath Western Riverside and facilitate the regeneration of this part of Bath.
Council planning chiefs are expected to make a decision on the development by November 25.
