Green light for 462 bed student accommodation scheme in Coventry.
Planning permission has been granted for Gulson Road, a 462 bed student residence in Coventry.
The building steps up from the scale of the residential terrace opposite towards the taller student blocks to the south-west. A series of open courtyards not only offer students a pleasant view, but also help break down the mass of the building. Inside, a combination of private studios, affordable and standard cluster flats are offered to attract a broad demographic of student residents.
Various social and study spaces and an on-site gym provide students with a blend of living and learning, while bookable group study and private dining spaces on the top floor offer views of the surrounding countryside.
The topping out ceremony took place on 25th September 2019. The scheme will deliver 462 beds of purpose built student accommodation.
Curlew Capital agreed to forward-fund the development which is on schedule to complete in summer 2020.
