Construction Enquirer Vita to submit plans for student accommodation at city’s former fire station site
Student accommodation specialist Vita is planning to build a 967-bed student accommodation project at the site of Nottingham’s former central fire and stations.
Architect Glen Howels has designed the scheme for the site on the corner of Shakespeare Street and north Church Street, which has gone out to public consultation prior to a planning application going in later this month.
The student complex will include a gym, dance studio and games and cinema and a large market food hall open to the public.
Inspired by the nearby Lace Market, the building complex is being designed sensitively and sustainably to sit appropriately alongside listed buildings, particularly on the corner opposite the Arkwright building, and the Arboretum Conservation Area.
