Gregory Property Group has announced forward funding and the start of work on one of the country’s largest purpose-built student blocks.
It’s a 407-bed student scheme on the edge of Leeds city centre; planning consent for the £30m-plus project was given last year.
The nine, 10 and 11-storey scheme comprises studios and bedroom clusters with terrace and garden features.
Facilities will include share social hubs, a cinema, gym, games room, concierge and 24-hour security.
“The scheme’s design is impressive, delivering high quality accommodation for Leeds students in a prime location that connects student life to the vibrant city centre in a matter of minutes” explains Barry Gregory, chairman of Gregory Property Group.
“Leeds remains a top 10 university destination in the UK and with a growing student population of around 60,000 students the city needs more homes. We expect to complete the development in time for occupation from the September 2020 University term and Fresh Student Living will be managing that occupation.”
