Jefferson Sheard Architects have been appointed by client HG Developments to deliver the design for a 198 bed, 6 storey student accommodation development in Edinburgh.
The scheme is located on a prime spot on London Road, opposite Meadowbank Stadium, with excellent public transport links and easy access to Edinburgh city centre, approximately 1.5 miles away.
The building will provide high quality student accommodation with a mix of clusters and small studios served by communal areas and ancillary space such as laundry facilities and cycle storage.
The mixed-use scheme also includes office space which is planned to by occupied by the charity People Know How. This will ideally locate them to engage with communities in the area and help foster volunteering by the students living in the building.
This makes up Phase 1 of the development, with a proposed Phase 2 providing a linked additional 76 bed student accommodation block.
