Plans to build hundreds of more student bedrooms in Newcastle look set to take a major step forward.
Building work has already started to overhaul the Kings Manor Business Park, with hundreds of student flats either built or approved, including the development at Clough House, Manor View House, and the Technopole building.
Now, developers are looking to demolish Eastgate House offices, next to the Manors Metro station, replacing it with a brand new eight-storey block of purpose-built student accommodation with more than 300 beds.
Submitted by Adderstone Group, the development is expected to be approved by Newcastle City Council's planning committee later this week.
Documents prepared by Ryder Architecture on behalf of Adderstone Group, said: "Creating vibrant and well connected residential accommodation on the proposed site will form the next step in the regeneration of Manors Business Park, aiming to provide a new cohesive city quarter comprising residential led mixed use development."
"Following the construction of Clough House, and the consented planning application for Technopole on Manors Business Park, Adderstone Group have developed proposals for Eastgate House (Plot C) to provide a flexible design suitable for student accommodation."
"Comprising purpose built, high quality residential accommodation and commercial spaces at ground level to meet local demand, the scheme will complement the ambition for the redevelopment of the wider Manors Business Park. With a mix of accommodation, the proposal will include studio apartments and two to six bedroom cluster apartments."
Planning officers have already recommended that councillors approve the scheme, subject to a section 106 being agreed.
