Development pipeline

We aim to have a development pipeline of more than 2,000 beds per annum, creating high-quality accommodation in prime locations.

Featured city

City of Nottingham

In line with our strategy to align with the strongest universities, we are expanding our portfolio in Nottingham. This includes two new developments which will help meet an increasing need for student accommodation in the city.

Featured Property

Lower Parliament Street, Nottingham

Work will start later in 2022 on a 270 bed development which will retain part of the original property in Lower Parliament Street, Nottingham, close to Nottingham Trent University’s planned city centre campus development. This development will be primarily targeted at second, third and postgraduate students.

Featured property

Abbey Lane, Edinburgh

A 298-bed development will support the ongoing regeneration of this area of the city and at the same time help to meet unmet demand for purpose built student accommodation in the area.

Featured property

Derby Road, Nottingham

A new 700 bed development at Derby Road adjacent to the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus.

Land requirements in 2022

We are actively purchasing well located development sites in London and the regions to continue to develop much needed high quality and good value purpose built student accommodation. Download our brochure to find out more.
