Student accommodation plans for 5-storey Nottingham office building approved

Plans from Study Inn for a student accommodation development at Lambert House in Talbot Street, Nottingham have been approved by the City Council.

The offices were previously the home of Experian. Study Inn Group, which manages more than 1800 student rooms across the UK, acquired Lambert House in February.

When news broke of the acquisition it was revealed that the re-developed property would open in September 2020 with 300 rooms and innovative communal space.

The submitted plans however indicate a reduction of rooms, proposing 180 student studio flats in the 5-storey office building.

At the time of the acquisition, co-founder Edward Jefferson said: “Lambert House is a landmark building in Nottingham and fits our model of being able to bring regeneration and economic vitality as well as the highest standard of accommodation. Having operated in Nottingham since 2012, we know the City well and this is an excellent addition to the Portfolio.

“Student accommodation and build to rent residential are maturing markets and we continue to innovate and provide for the subtle changes that are so important to recognise and this will be evident in our new schemes.”
