The Parklane Group has submitted plans to expand its student accommodation brand, IconInc, into Lincoln with a new £20m development.

Construction work is due to start on the 138-bed scheme in early 2018 and is due for completion in 2019.

The new student development will be situated in the heart of the City Centre and just a short walk from Lincoln University and Central Station.

IconInc focuses on the high-end student market with facilities and infrastructure designed to improve university life. The brands first development in Leeds opened in 2015 and was followed by two further schemes.

The new scheme will come equipped with a range of facilities include a steam room, sauna, home cinema, gym, fully stocked pantry and breakfast bar, as well as a 24-hour concierge, and a host of communal areas where students can socialise and study.

Commenting on the plans, managing director of Parklane Group, Naveen Ahmed, said: "We are pleased to be bringing the InconInc brand to Lincoln, building on the success of our existing developments in Liverpool and Leeds, and setting a new standard in luxury student living in Lincolnshire.

"IconInc aims to reinvent student living and strives to improve student lifestyle by offering residents unrivalled facilities, the latest in technology, luxury design and furnishings, all conveniently located to make the most of their University city.

"Putting the experience and the welfare of tenants at the heart of what we do is key to IconInc's success and we strive to provide a level of luxury living that exceeds the expectations of our tenants."

Under the proposals, the three existing buildings on the site will be retained, but will undergo a renovation project to turn them into usable spaces.
