UK: McLaren Property to deliver student accommodation
Nottingham City Council has resolved to grant planning permission to McLaren Property for the redevelopment of a building in Nottingham into a 319-bedroom student accommodation development.
The scheme designed by Leonard Design Architects has communal facilities on the ground floor, including study areas, kitchens, a gym and a cinema, with bedrooms situated across the nine-storey building.
The existing office building of five storeys was previously occupied by warranty provider Domestic and General. The development will commence on site in the second quarter next year with the scheme set to complete in 2025.
McLaren Property has also reached practical completion of a 639-bedroom student accommodation development in Warwick, forward funded by Student Roost and delivered by sister company McLaren Construction, the construction value of the project was £38 million and it is ready to receive students for the coming academic year.
Ed Court, development director at McLaren Property, said: “We are committed to delivering high-quality, centrally located student accommodation that continues to generate demand from investors, and meets the needs of students. We’re excited to be repurposing a prominent site in Nottingham by creating a new and improved street elevation and delivering exemplary architecture.”
Bruce Ruddle, development director at McLaren Property, added: “In Warwick, we’ve achieved practical completion and delivered with our sister company McLaren Construction 639-bedroomed student development, ready for the new academic year, providing students with the very best accommodation.”
