CCG has completed the construction of a new student accommodation block located in the centre of Edinburgh.

The student development consists of 234 beds and is situated on Orwell Terrace in the Dalry district of the city centre and will be used solely by students attending Edinburgh Napier University.

According to the company, the development is "ideally suited" for student living due to its close proximity to many local amenities, including supermarkets and a sports centre. The facility also has extensive traffic links that feed directly into some of the University's campuses and wider parts of the city and beyond.

The purpose-built student accommodation has been designed as three separate blocks reaching four storeys to the north east, and to the south east. A seven-storey rotunda ensures the building has a distinctive presence.

Those students living in the premises will be able to benefit from modern interiors and comfortable living spaces and bedrooms will typically be arranged in clusters of 4-9 rooms, each with its own en-suite shower and shared living spaces.

Alastair Wylie, Chairman and CEO of CCG said: "Orwell Terrace is a modern development for the modern student, ideally located in order for young people to benefit from their studies as well as the city of Edinburgh."

Mr Wylie continued, saying: "Student housing is in high demand and a growing market for CCG. This is the third student housing project to be completed by the Group in the last two years and we look forward to growing this side of the business further in the years ahead."
