Council Blames Competition for Lower Than Expected Returns
13th Feb 2020
Located on Port Dundas Road the former print works is currently a private car park.
The development will include 514 (QLite) one-bed student rooms, as well as 100 (QPad) graduate apartments. The site will also include a gym, bike store, cookzone and a management suite.
Documents submitted as part of the application said: "The QLite student rooms will comprise a bed, shower room/toilet and desk area. Students will make use of the shared facilities on the ground floor for meals, socialising, exercising, cooking, laundry etc."
"This arrangement reflects demand from students for a move away for the shared student 'cluster' apartments (usually six bedrooms with shared kitchen and living room) that have characterised much of recent new build student accommodation back to a form of accommodation closer to the Halls of Residences that used to dominate student accommodation in the mid to late 20th Century."
"The QPad Graduate apartment, aimed at postgraduates, comprises a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. These represent a much more self-contained form of accommodation reflecting demand from more mature postgraduates, yet still within a student accommodation setting."
A decision on the scheme isn't due until early next year.
