Plans to demolish an office building in Nottingham, to make way for student accommodation, have been approved by the city council.
The plans for Chaddesden House, at 77 Talbot Street, come from McLaren Property (Nottingham) Limited.
The building currently hosts the offices of Domestic & General, which will move to new premises on Station Street in 2022.
The new development is to provide 318 student beds as well as communal facilities. A mix of 1 bed self contained studio apartments and ensuite cluster bedrooms, with clusters ranging from 4-8 beds, would be created.
A design statement says: “The vision for this proposal is to create a high quality purpose built student accommodation scheme with external courtyards and landscaping, which sits well within the conservation areas well as within its more immediate context.
“Refurbishment of the existing building was considered at an early stage but unfortunately was not found to be viable.
“Instead the existing building will be demolished in order to make way for this new development.”
