Student accommodation provider Megaclose has been granted planning permission to build 80 student apartments in Nottingham.

Located on the corner of Mansfield Road and Shakespeare Street, the development will result in the repurposing of the current building whilst adding an additional floor.

Designed by Maber Architects, the applicant suggested the scheme would result in significant benefits to the location in terms of its comprehensive renovation. The site will also benefit from an improved appearance, energy efficiency and safety. They also argued the use of the site as purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) would help address the over-reliance on HMO accommodation in the city.
