UK-based developer Watkin Jones has secured planning permission for a £100M student accommodation scheme in London.

The proposed redevelopment of Duncan House, located in Stratford High Street E15, will include 511 beds, 44 residential units and 2,800sq m of academic space.

Watkin Jones is in advanced talks with University of London to forward sell the student part of the Duncan House scheme as per the group's business model.  The housing units will be sold in a separate transaction.  

Watkin Jones’ CEO Mark Watkin Jones said: "We are delighted to have secured planning consent for this latest scheme in our pipeline which builds our visibility around our business model. We expect to be on site towards the end of 2016 and complete the scheme in 2019."
