More student accommodation is coming to Cardiff after Experience Invest announced plans to build a new block of purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) in the heart of the city.

Construction work is due to start in the first quarter of 2020, with Opto Property Group handling the build. Once complete, the new site will consist of 728 modern studios and will come equipped with an on-site gym, library, sky garden, outdoor sports courts, communal courtyards and a spa treatment room.

The studios are currently available to purchase off-plan, starting from £82,750.

Opto Student Cardiff is due to be ready in time for the 2021-22 academic year. Once built, the leasing and management of each individual apartment will be handled by Opto Student Living.

Opto Student Cardiff is the fifth PBSA project for Opto Property Development and Experience Invest, having already worked together on the construction of modern student accommodation in Luton and Newcastle.
