Study Inn Group is to build and operate a £35 million student accommodation scheme in Leeds.
The company has received planning consent to redevelop Brotherton House in the city centre into a 350-bed purpose-built student accommodation centre with extensive study space and communal facilities.
The redevelopment will include converting the prominent Brotherton House building with a glazed link to a new 15-storey building. Study Inn Group will also operate and manage the scheme, set to open in September next year.
The scheme will provide a mixture of studios and en-suite serviced apartments as well as 10,400 square feet of study space and 6,600 square feet of communal facilities, within a 10-minute walk to the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University.
Services include 24/7 site management, cleaning and laundry services.
“It represents a £35 million investment in the city and as both a developer and an operator, it will be a testament to our belief in Leeds and in the continuing resilience of the purpose-built student accommodation sector,” said Jack Jefferson, acquisitions director at Study Inn.
Study Inn is currently building properties in Exeter and Leicester, to add to properties in Bristol, Loughborough, and Nottingham.
