The construction firm Stepnell has secured its third student accommodation project for Zone Developments.

The company has already begun work on the 91-bed development at De Montfort Mews in the centre of Leicester. The site is within walking distance to De Montfort University and University of Leicester campuses and is scheduled to open in time for the 2019-20 academic year.

The latest project follows on from Stepnell's completion of a 195-bed development at 8-10 West Walk and Princess Road East, also for Zone Developments.

Their most recent scheme will feature 91 studio apartments as well as a gym, cinema room, study pods and reception area. It will also have new parking and cycle storage facilities.

Commenting on the project, Zone direct Neil Thakkar said: "This project is set to deliver exciting, contemporary student accommodation in an excellent location. Having collaborated so successfully with the company on our previous projects, we have absolute confidence in Stepnell and are delighted to be working with them once again."

"We know we can rely on the Stepnell team to deliver for us. They are dedicated to getting every detail exactly right and consistently impress with their willingness to go the extra mile to achieve the highest quality standards."
