Stepnell has completed the construction of 85 studios apartments in Leicester's West Walk for Zone Developments.

The student accommodation was designed by MAS Architecture and resulted in the refurbishment of Victorian buildings along with the development of a four-storey block to create accommodation for students in time for the 2018-19 academic year.

It represents the second scheme delivered by Stepnell for Zone, with each bedroom equipped with fully-fitted kitchens and integrated appliances.

The purpose-built student accommodation is within walking distance of both the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. The residence will also feature a gym, cinema room, common room, study pods and on-site laundry facilities.

Commenting on the project, Neil Thakkar of Zone, said: "8 West Walk has significantly extended the options for high-specification contemporary student accommodation in the city centre. We're delighted by the response to the development's stylish studio apartments offering a superb range of amenities."

Stepnell regional director Tom Sewell added: "Benefiting from a brilliant location in the heart of the city centre, the new West Walk accommodation is a fantastic addition to Zone's impressive portfolio of highly desirable student accommodation."

"We're extremely proud to have developed such a successful working relationship with Zone who are helping set new standards for student residences, creating exceptional places in which to live and study."
