Unite given the go-ahead for £70m Liverpool student halls scheme

Student accommodation specialist Unite has got the green light for a 1,085-bed scheme in the centre of Liverpool.

The £70m building project brings the total development pipeline to be delivered within the next three years to over 5,000 beds.

The new scheme will be built alongside Unite's Grand Central student village, which is 99% let for the 2016/17 academic year, and will provide a home for over 2,500 students in the new combined building.

It will provide a well-located student hub serving the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University, close to Liverpool's Lime Street station and the new university student campus. It is anticipated that the new development will be open in time for the 2019/20 academic year.

The site was acquired in April this year and planning has been delivered in under six months. Designs were drawn up by architect Falconer Chester Hall, structural engineer Meinhardt and Surrey-based building services consultant Applied Energy.
