Torsion Group has completed the development of a 290-bed PBSA scheme in Birmingham dubbed Toybox.

Built on behalf of Moorfield Real Estate Fund the accommodation consists of 150 studio apartments and 139 en-suite cluster bedrooms split across 15 storeys.

The scheme comes equipped with communal spaces, an onsite gym, a private courtyard, automated parcel lockers and super-fast Wi-Fi.

The property is reportedly already full for the 2019-20 academic year.

Situated in Bishopsgate Street, Toybox is located in close proximity to all four major universities. Furthermore, the city's main shopping district, as well as popular student bars, are all within walking distance of the site.

Charles Ferguson-Davie, CIO at Moorfield Group, says: "As one of the pioneers in the PBSA sector and an active current investor, we have been able to use our experiences from previous projects, including Hox Park, which services Royal Holloway University and opened last year. This ensured we delivered a scheme that is of a high-quality with impeccable interior design and stylish communal facilities focused on enhancing the students' university experience as well as support their wellbeing."

"The letting success at the Toybox reinforces our belief that a British university education continues to be of particular appeal to overseas students, who expect more from their university experience than ever before - and the quality of their accommodation plays a major role in that experience."
