A prominent student apartment block in Coventry with space for more than 400 students, including a sky lounge dining area and roof terrace, has been submitted to Coventry City Council for planning approval. A positive determination of the planning process is expected towards the end of Summer 2020.
Birmingham-based Joint-Venture G3S Living is behind the proposals for the 19-storey scheme earmarked for land adjacent to the Ramada Hotel. G3S is a joint venture between gbpartnerships, 3 Willows and Shorwell Projects. The JV partners collectively bring together skills and track record in planning, design, development, construction management, asset management and the financial control of projects across various sectors including residential and student accommodation. Ian Tuddenham, Development Director at gbpartnerships commented: "We are extremely pleased to be able to submit this fantastic scheme for planning approval. Being only a 7 minute walk from the city centre and with the main university campus only 5 minutes further out, this will prove an excellent location for students.
We have worked hard with IDP Architects to ensure the building offers both outstanding accommodation and exciting social spaces. The sky lounge and roof terrace are sure to offer amazing views across Coventry and Warwickshire and will really enhance the student social experience. Visiting parents have the convenience of the 4* Ramada Hotel next door. This is our 3rd JV with 3 Willows, and we are once again working brilliantly in close partnership to bring this forward.”
A total of 60 student clusters providing 339 bedrooms and 96 one-bedroom studios would be included in the building if the council gives the go-ahead. Also featured would be a sky lounge dining and roof terrace with a 270 degree view, reception and office, presentation room, games room, break-out space and laundry.
A total of 140 secure cycle spaces and six disabled car parking spaces form part of the plans which would create seven full-time and three part-time jobs.
