The 520-bed development will be the second tallest building in Manchester after the Beetham Tower. It will accommodate undergraduate students, postgraduates and international students and include a mix of self-contained studio apartments and cluster-style communal accommodation.

Edward Cade, Chief Executive of Student Castle comments: “We are delighted to have been awarded planning permission for this landmark scheme in Manchester. As a new, expert developer within the sector we are pleased to have this opportunity to make a positive contribution to the regional economy and higher education sector in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities.

“At Student Castle we are committed to changing the perception of traditional private student accommodation by meeting 21st century student aspiration, with a focus on delivering high quality, affordable homes for students.”

Hodder + Partners are architects and lead consultants for the development. Stephen Hodder, Chairman, Hodder + Partners said: “Based on our local knowledge and expertise, we have designed this building as a considered response to the scale of the street and the city itself. The tower will be sympathetic to the existing city skyline and its immediate surroundings we are looking forward to delivering it successfully for Student Castle.”

Drivers Jonas Deloitte acted as planning consultants for the development. The wider project team on the Great Marlborough Scheme includes Canmoor Projects, Shepherd Construction and regional Building Consultants Edmund Kirby, WSP and Brentwood Design Group. The development is due for completion in 2012.
