A new student accommodation development in Leeds has completed a major milestone after a topping-out ceremony was held.

Crosslane Student Developments are due to complete Sycamore House in time for the 2018-19 academic year. The building is expected to have a gross development value of around £15m once built.

The new residence is located to the north-west of the city centre in a residential area on the corner of Woodhouse Square and Claremont Avenue.

The new PBSA will consist of 117 self-contained studio apartments and will feature a common room, study areas, gym and a luxury kitchen and entertaining room.

Commenting on the scheme, Robert Goulsbra, development manager at Crosslane Student Developments, said: "We are pleased to be on track and on budget for Sycamore House, our first development in the exciting and vibrant city of Leeds. Crosslane continues to explore other sites in the city to develop purpose-built student accommodation, helping to meet the growing demand for this type of student housing in Leeds."

"This is Crosslane's second development in Yorkshire, following the successful construction of Brass Founders in Sheffield, a new 437 bed purpose-built student accommodation scheme, completed on time and on budget ahead of the 2017/18 academic year which is fully let."

The topping out ceremony of Sycamore House was attending by contractors and partners working on the project, along with members of the Crosslane team and Torsion Group.
