Portsmouth Council Approve 97-bed Student Scheme
15th Dec 2017
Plans have been put forward to develop a large-scale student accommodation scheme on the site of a former garage near the centre of Coventry.
Able to accommodate 301 students, the scheme calls for the development of the former T Joyce & Sons Garage to the east of Paradise Street. The student housing will be split across blocks ranging between three and 14 storeys and will come equipped with communal facilities, cycle parking, a landscaped courtyard and pedestrian access.
If given the go-ahead, the accommodation would be managed and operated by AXO Student Living, who already run student accommodation across Coventry.
The design and access statement, submitted as part of the application, said: "The application site is located on the south-eastern edge of the city centre and is within very close proximity to Coventry University's facilities.
"Thus, it is considered that the site is ideally located in sustainability terms to meet the identified need for further student accommodation.
"The adjacent student scheme at 15-23 Paradise Street and the recently granted student scheme abutting the site to the north demonstrates that the principle for student accommodation is supported in the area and that the use successfully exists in this location."
The document also went on to suggest the scheme would enhance the previously run-down site and help regenerate the area, whilst also freeing up traditional housing in the city.
