Kent based RG Group is looking to build a 22-storey block of student accommodation in Leeds.

Developers London & Scottish Investment will construct the L-shaped student scheme, located at Symonds House on Belgrave Street.

The building will be clad in white-brick and will consist of an 8-storey lower section with a 22-storey connected tower. The development will consist of 350 student studio flats.

The building has been designed by Cunniff Design, with Clancy Consulting on board as building services engineer.

Demolition work on the existing Symonds House is expected with the coming weeks, with the development due to be operational in time for the 2019-20 academic year.
