The Proposal

The proposed change of use of the entire building to include the removal of the existing penthouse and the addition of two new floors. 80 additional student beds were added along with all communal and recreational areas.

The existing two blocks to the rear accommodate 100 bed spaces. With the addition of the front block the accommodation has almost doubled with a total of 180 bed spaces making it an exceptionally efficient property. 

Utilising the existing building with the addition of a lightweight additional floors will greatly increase the asset value and revenue generating capacity of the scheme..
