Plans to redevelop a site at the junction of King Edward Street and Glasshouse Street with a major mixed use scheme have been recommended for approval by Nottingham City Council.
Fusion Students are behind the development, the proposals for which comprise a full planning application for 552 student bedrooms, with associated amenity/ancillary spaces and external landscaped terraces, and an outline application for 89 residential apartments with a mix of one, two and three bed units.
The student accommodation and apartments would reach up to eight storeys.
Commercial office space and retail space would also be created.
The development site is currently occupied by a cluster of offices and associated surface car parking.
A design statement for the scheme says: “The proposed site offers a considerable opportunity to bring forward a high-quality mixed-use scheme that would reinforce and improve a key arterial route into the North-East of the city, whilst creating a benchmark for
development in the surrounding areas.”
