A new £50m student development in Bournemouth has been topped out and is scheduled to be ready in time for the start of the new academic year.

The scheme is being developed by Gilltown, with Ridge and Partners LLP providing project management, design services and surveying.

Commenting on the project, David Bull, associate at Ridge, said: "The project is now well advanced, using state of the art production techniques, to ensure the project is completed in August for the first student intake in September."

"The demand for high quality student accommodation is something we are continuing to see across the UK, and Bournemouth is no exception. We are delighted to be a part of this ground-breaking new development, offering the next generation of students the very best accommodation."

The residence is owned by AIG Global Real Estate, part of the global insurer AIG and will provide more than 400 bedrooms across a mix of studios and cluster apartments.

The scheme is situated in the Lansdowne Campus and will be managed by Fresh Student Living.
