Accommodation Earmarked for New UA92 University
17th Jul 2018
Planning permission has been granted to develop a student accommodation block close to the main city centre campus in Leeds.
Situated on Blenheim Walk the site will be developed by York-based S Harrison and will consist of 180 en-suite bedrooms spread across 29 cluster apartments.
Included in the plans are a variety of communal facilities such as a reception area, study rooms, games area, common room and large external courtyard.
Commenting on the development, Gavin Douglas, design manager from S Harrison, said: "Securing planning permission for this scheme will enable us to create a standout development that is within a few minutes walk of both the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University."
Mr Douglas indicated that the scheme should be complete in time for the start of the 2018-19 academic year.
Despite having to move out of their current address, Rex Procter & Partners were supportive of the scheme with managing director Andrew Cooper saying: "We've been at our current Leeds address for the last 23 years and whilst it's been a great base for us, the location is ideal for this type of purpose built student accommodation scheme. As a result, the development will make way for us to relocate into Leeds city centre."
