Plans to develop new student accommodation on Pemberton Street in Nottingham have been submitted to the city council.
The proposed site is currently used as a public car park and has been identified as a regeneration site within the Local Plan.
The new scheme would offer 90 student rooms, comprising 19 studios and 71 cluster beds, in a three and five storey development facing Canal Street, reducing to four floors as it continues around onto Pemberton Street.
A design statement for ‘Finley House’, submitted by ARC Design Studio on behalf of the applicant, reads: “The car parks low quality and lack of maintenance visually detracts from the street frontage. A new scheme which is of high quality will be attractive to prospective students, but also beneficial for the health and well-being of its occupants.
“The location is perfectly positioned for student housing due to its close proximity to Nottingham Trent University and the new University of Nottingham campus on the former HMRC site. It will also help to revitalise the local area by drawing interest further down Canal Street, and into the City Centre.”
