Crosslane gets green light for Coventry student housing project

WCN Editorial Team 20 Apr 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Crosslane Student Developments, part of UK-based Crosslane Group, has obtained planning permission for a 583-bed purpose-built student housing project in Coventry, UK.

The 20-storey student block, designed by DAY Architectural, will be constructed on a cleared derelict site located at the junction of Friar’s Road and St Patrick’s Road.

The tower will feature 140 studios and 443 en-suite cluster flats, along with a study room, a gym, a cinema, a kitchen-dining room, and a private outdoor courtyard.

Mike Moran, Crosslane Student Developments development manager, said: “Crosslane is delighted to have secured planning consent for our first student accommodation development in Coventry following extensive engagement with the local planning authority on the design and a public consultation event that Crosslane hosted for local residents.

“The proposed scheme will act as a gateway from the station into the heart of the city centre and a short walk to Coventry University. At 583 beds, the scheme will be a significant contribution to easing the supply/demand fundamentals which persist for purpose-built student accommodation in the city.”

The project is expected to be complete in time for the 2019/2020 academic year.

Prime Student Living, the student accommodation lettings and operational management arm of Crosslane, will be responsible for achieving full occupancy before practical completion.
