Student Accommodation Receives Saltire Housing Design Award
22nd Jun 2018
Designs have been released showing how an area of scrubland in Nottingham will be developed into blocks of premium student accommodation.
Situated on the canal edge of Castle Wharf, the development will feature three student residences with 66 rooms.
The scheme will be car-free, with students expected to make use of public transport links and the city's super-cycle highway that links the universities and Queen's Medical Centre with the city and its train station.
Planning permission has already been granted for the scheme with Bricross Developments responsible for its construction. Nottingham based Leonard Design Architects were appointed by the developers to design the scheme located on a narrow strip of land opposite the National Tyres garage.
Commenting on the development's approval, director John Morgan, said: "We are delighted to have secured planning consent for the development.
"It is a fantastic location for students and will rejuvenate a previously derelict patch of land and help to frame the street and improve this gateway into the city.
"The scheme, which draws inspiration from the old canal buildings along the canal network, has been sensitively designed to work as a series of blocks with spaces in-between to enhance the public realm and allows access to the canal side and super-cycle highway.
"The three different buildings within the scheme have also been designed so views across the canal are maintained. We worked very closely with the local planning authority to develop a design which was sensitive and appropriate for the site."
