New Build – Student Accommodation

This student accommodation development is located between the two main routes from the University of Central Lancashire into Preston city centre. It comprises 315 bedrooms with ancillary facilities, situated around a central landscaped courtyard. A restaurant will occupy the ground floor commercial unit.

The development varies in height from 4 to 7 storeys, corresponding to the topography of the site and referencing the scale of the buildings along the city’s historic Friargate and the taller Victorian buildings to be found along Corporation Street. Planning permission was also achieved for illuminated rooftop signage which will further identify this as a landmark building.
