Cardiff Council have received a new planning application for a 17-storey high student accommodation block in the centre of the city.

The scheme would be comprised of 366 studio flats and would be built at the site of a former block of offices. One potential difficulty is that this block is next to 11 Park Place, a listed building.

Subject to planning approval the block is scheduled for completion ready for the 2019/20 academic year.

As comes standard with many new developments of this type, the block will come complete with a gym, study rooms, movie and games rooms and a dining area.
