A significant student development in Coventry has reached a major milestone after topping out.

A topping out ceremony for the 462-bed development on Gulson Road was held by developer Gilltown and the construction company Robertson.

Consisting of eight storeys, the scheme will feature studio and cluster bedrooms and will come equipped with shared study areas, a common room, gym, staff management suite and laundry facilities.

The new accommodation is in close proximity to Coventry University buildings, including the engineering and computing building, library and multi-storey staff car park.

Commenting on the build, James Gillespie of Gilltown said: "We're making great progress on this high-quality student accommodation development. It's brilliant to see Gulson Gardens reaching its potential - it's a superb location for students and I'm sure the first cohort of residents next year will be really pleased with their new homes."

Meanwhile, managing direct of Robertson Yorkshire and East Midlands, Paul Turner, added: "For every student accommodation project we complete, our goal is to provide the best standard of living so students can focus on what's really important - their education and enjoying their student lifestyle. It's great to reach this milestone, and our team on site will remain laser-focused until we complete on the project."
