Planning permission has been granted for a 19-storey student accommodation block on Friar's Road in Coventry.
The scheme will consist of 140 studios and 443 cluster en-suite flats.
Sitting on the junction of Friar's Road and St Patrick's Road, the site is located to the south of Coventry city centre and is just a short walk to Coventry University's campus, as well as the train station and the city's main shopping centre.
Included in the plans is a gym, common room, study area, cinema and a private outdoor courtyard.
Developers Crosslane will hand over the management of the site to Prime Student Living once complete.
Commenting on the development, Mike Moran, development manager at Crosslane Student Developments, said: "The proposed scheme will act as a gateway from the station into the heart of the city centre and is a short walk to Coventry University.
"At 583 beds, the scheme will be a significant contribution to easing the supply-demand fundamentals which persist for purpose-built student accommodation in the city."
If all goes to plan the new student accommodation is due to open in time for the 2019/20 academic year.
