Crosslane Student Developments have completed the construction of a 237-bed block of student accommodation.

The Old Printworks is located in the popular student area of Newington, in the centre of Edinburgh. The site is also situated close to the University of Edinburgh and the historic Royal Mile.

Development of the complex started in 2016 and the new purpose-built scheme consists of 44 studio apartments and 193 cluster flats of between three and nine beds.

Commenting on the development, director of Crosslane Student Developments, Jon Stewart, said: "The development has been completed on budget, ahead of the start of the academic year and is fully let.

"Understanding the needs of students is vital to Crosslane's established track record and the fact it is fully let is testament that the Old Printworks provides the facilities and services that students want and helps to meet the demand for purpose-built, high-quality student accommodation in this popular student city."
